Listen Up Music Lovers: 1965 and 1974

Two items of interest to those of us who love oldies.

Right now, you can listen to the "Man of Beach Music," your Fessa John Hook do his Beach Music Yearly Countdown at his site   This week he is doing 1965, a good year for me.  Click below the picture to hear all three countdowns.  For those of you unfamiliar with Beach Music, listen to the current top 40.  Plus, for you blues folk, his Saturday Night Fish Fry is pretty good as well.

These are songs that were popular at various beach joints along the NC, SC and Ga. coast.  Some of the songs and artists you'll recognize, others not.

Some of the groups and performers: Four Tops, Drifters, Temptations, Supremes (Motown has always been big in Beach Music) Maxine Brown, Radiants, Fred Hughes, Embers, Jive Five, Uniques, Billy Stewart and Eddie Holland.

You can listen to it anytime until sometime next week.

Then tomorrow, Wendy Rice goes back to 1974 for her four-hour long Saturday Morning Flashback Show on WXRT in Chicago. .
