The music authority: BILLBOARD MAGAZINE started publishing the Hot 100 chart, ranking the 100 most popular songs in the U.S. back in 1955. We start there, and have every song to make those charts - in all those years - right here. Perfect copies of every song, most in stereo (when available) and they are permanently available on C D. To answer an email question: there are about 5,000 songs you see here, and I have three - 2 Terabyte hard drives, with more.
It is my extreme pleasure to bring you two hours of the world's greatest music every weekend. I began my radio career in 1963. Since that time I have played all the hits, and gathered all the hits, so you can re-live the great moments in your life with the proper musical background, the good times and the great memories. I have worked in the radio business in Tennessee, Georgia and of course Alabama, and I have learned what oldies "work", so join me and lets party!
We have 8 CD payers ready to play the hits, and a newly installed control console to make sure the quality is there. These great songs sound much better now than when we were growing up and hearing them on the radio.
Here is the other side of the control area. 4 more CD players. More music - more often!
By the time I was in high school I had decided that I wanted to be on the radio, playing the music that we love, and doing my best to entertain the radio audience.
I started sweeping the floor at WETO in Gadsden, Alabama in October of 1963 and was able to operate the equipment and play music on Sunday , after the religious programming had ended. From that start, making a whopping $10 a week, I slowly but steadily advanced up the ladder, to finally be a full time disc jockey, then program director, chief engineer and even shared ownership in radio.
At the end of the day, the work I enjoy the most is when the radio audience feels connected to my efforts. There's nothing better than playing the hits of the past, and relating trivia about the song or the artist, to make it informative as well as entertaining.
I'm very lucky to be doing what I love as my profession. This job allows me to re-connect with friends who have listened to me over the years, and to meet new friends by way of the greatest medium in the world, one to one radio.
