Thursday night at 9 PM on “The Grooveyard”, host Alan Seltzer celebrates the anniversary of the release of the iconic 1955 film “The Blackboard Jungle” by featuring the music of Bill Haley. The classic “Rock Around the Clock” with Haley and His Comets, was featured at both the opening and end of the movie along with an instrumental version in the middle of the movie. This propelled the song–originally a B-side–into an instant hit. The week’s Top Ten @ 10 will feature the songs of March 20 1960.
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 here.
