Willie B takes a special look at the world of American Vocal group harmony – sometimes called street corner serenades, sometimes called doo-wop – every time two or more friend would get together and the conversation turned to music, the result could be magical. You know their names, the Belmonts, The Orioles, The Mills Brothers, the Flamingos, the Dominoes – now hear their music – interrupted only by the occasional factoid, offered by the curator of our Vinyl Resting Place – Willie B.
Yes we lost another music legend – this week, and maybe next, we pay tribute to Gregg Allman.
No – we will not be playing cuts from “Two the hard way” – this week we feature “All My Friends” On January 10, 2014, a star-studded tribute concert to Gregg Allman was held at the Fox Theatre in Atlanta. All My Friends is a rousing success. Haynes and Trucks open up the show, then there’s a stretch that showcases the group’s blues and soul roots — Sam Moore and Keb’ Mo’ show up, then Taj Mahal and Dr. John. There’s space made for Americana maverick John Hiatt, ’70s peer Jackson Browne, jam band Widespread Panic, and country stars Trace Adkins, Vince Gill, Zac Brown, and Eric Church before the Allman Brothers Band ties things up with “Dreams” and “Whipping Post.” All My Friends illustrates just how rich Gregg Allman’s contribution to American music is and what we’ll miss.
It happens 9am today on The VInyl Resting Place on RadioMaxMusic and encore at 10pm.
This week on the Vinyl Resting Place, we pay tribute to those who don a uniform of this great country, and risk their lives to make sure we are free.
Today the Vinyl Resting Place will be offering its afternoon in the morning. Couple of weeks back we offered up songs of the morning – today, starting at 9am (with a replay at 10PM) we spin platters that take us from noon to early evening – sound confusing? – It is (I can’t figure it out) – maybe the playlist will help…… Join Willie B on RadioMaxMusic.
Sunday at 9am (or 10pm ET) for the Vinyl Resting Place on RadioMaxMusic.com (or on the TuneIn app). Where else could you hear a program that has LL Cool J, Patty Duke, Elvis and Al Jolson on the same program? Well it’s mothers’ day and The Vinyl Resting place pays tribute to all the mothers out there –
And I mean all the mothers – even test tube babies has a womb with a view.
Today I finally get to play one of my all time radio heroes; Jean Shepard, with an intro for Mothers’ day, live, from the Limelight. Our first hour together includes Jolie with “Remember Mothers Day”, Derek
Pilgrim, Patti Page with “Throw Mama from the Train”, Garth Brooks, Faith Hill, Linda Carr & The Love Squad, Good Charlotte, The Spice Girls, Tanya Tucker, Red Sovine, Sister Sledge Elvis and more
Its the colors of the day on The Vinyl Resting place. This week we spend 3 hours in the morning – you know waking up, having breakfast – we also have our second installment of mixing the hits – we play some of the individual tracks from the Beatles A Day in the Life – then present our own quadraphonic mix of that song – so wake up with Willie and the Vinyl Resting Place on RadioMaxMusic or on the TuneIn app – this Sunday at 9 (and if you’re not careful – we’ll do it all again at 10PM)…
This week we take to the friendly skies – hoping its over booked so we can cash in on that $10 grand offer.
Lots of songs that help us take flight, and our new multi track feature during hour 3 so come fly with us on The Vinyl Resting Place – we’re on the TuneIn app or on line at RadioMaxMusic.com
