This Week: Mr. Excitement, and Old is New Again


jackie_wilson

Thursday night at 9 PM on “The Grooveyard”, host Alan Seltzer shares a six-pack of songs by “Mr. Excitement”, Jackie Wilson.  The set of songs will commemorate Jackie’s arrest this week in 1966 for inciting a riot due to how well he stirred up the crowd with his music in a concert in Texas.  He’ll also share new Grooveyard-related music by Darlene Love and Aaron Neville.  The week’s Top Ten @ 10 will feature the songs of June 27, 1958.  We’ll also pay tribute to Alan Berman, a leader in the local oldies community who died last week.

“The Grooveyard” follows “The Rock Show” each week on WCWP-FM.  On this week’s show, host Bobby G will mark the anniversary of the closing of the Fillmore East in 1971 by playing some rare recordings from shows at the iconic club.  Both “The Rock Show” and “The Grooveyard are 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.
