Most important, everyone at “The Grooveyard” hopes our friends and listeners are safe and healthy following the storm earlier this week.
Due to unsafe road conditions around the LIU Post campus, live programming is still suspended on WCWP-FM. While you will hear the music of “The Grooveyard” between 9 and 11 tonight, there will not be a host. The on-air version of the week’s Top Ten @ 10 will not be heard either. We look forward to returning next week with a surprise or two.
As long as you have power and Internet access, you can still enjoy “The Grooveyard” online. The video edition of our Top Ten @ 10 for November 1, 1956 will be posted as usual Thursday night. To maintain the show’s tradition, the video edition will be posted at 10 PM rather than when the on-air version ends like we normally do. Even better, there’s 11 songs on this week’s Top Ten–with an explanation included–plus a bonus video you won’t want to miss. Of course, our past Top Ten @ 10 posts are still available here for your enjoyment. Look for the “follow” link on the right side of this page to get the videos via e-mail when they’re available.
You can also continue to vote for your favorite songs on our Grooveyard Greats listener polls. The poll for the best songs of 1958 will remain open an additional week for anyone who lost power in the storm, while the poll for your favorite songs from 1961 continues. Both will close next Thursday at 11 PM. The final poll in the first round of the Grooveyard Greats–for the best songs of 1956— is now online. Take a break from the stresses of recovery and vote for your favorite songs. There have been some close races, so your votes can make a difference in which songs will reach the final round. You can also check the results so far and the full schedule on the Grooveyard Greats home page.
We look forward to you joining us again next Thursday at 9 PM on “The Grooveyard” on 88.1 FM on Long Island, the 88.1 FM link on wcwp.org or the TuneIn app on your SmartPhone. Feel free to send song requests, non-political rants, comments and suggestions below.
