It was the year when Alaska and Hawaii gained statehood…when the Oscars actually ended 20 minutes ahead of schedule…when America took steps to enter the space race…and when we saw the plane crash now known as “The Day the Music Died”.
This Thursday at 9 PM, Alan Seltzer will focus on the music and events of 1959 in the first of a series of Flashback special shows on “The Grooveyard”.. We’ll play all the songs that made it to number one in order, plus clips from some of the major events of the year and as many other hits from the year as possible.
In addition, we’re still accepting dedications for significant others–real or fake, living or dead–for the Valentines Day edition of “The Grooveyard”. Get more details and post your requests and dedications here.
Hosted by Alan Seltzer, “The Grooveyard” can be heard 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, comments and suggestions via Twitter or the form below.
