Jukin' Oldies and 1969 on the Radio

I came across a really good radio station on the internet called "Jukin' Oldies:  The World's Greatest Oldies."  Just type in Jukin' Oldies on your Yahoo! search.  It's apparently a 24-hour station with different deejays hosting segments, including one of my favorites, 'Fessa John Hook, doing all those great Beach Music songs.

I'm listening to it right now.

Also, another good one here in the Chicago area is MeTV FM, 87.7 FM which plays quite a mic of well-known and lesser known songs from the 1950s to 1980s.  When we're in the car and I don't have a cassette playing, this is what we listen to around home.  It also streams on Comcast Xfinity and can be heard on 87.7 FM.

Just one drawback that I've seen so far is that they don't run the names of the songs and artists.  Believe me, they dig deep down for their songs and this is needed.

Starting at 8 a.m. Central, WXRT, 93.1 FM in Chicago goes to 1969 for three hours on its Saturday Morning Flashback Show.  It streams at www.wxrt.com.

Of course, Sunday, we have Bob Stroud's Rock and Roll Roots (60s-70s) Show on Chicago's WDRV from 7 to 10 a.m..  Also Terri Hemmert's Breakfast With the Beatles from 8 to 10 a.m., on Chicago's WXRT and at 9 p.m. Tom Marker's Bluesbreakers on the same station.

All Times Central.  --RoadDog
