National League baseball returned to New York when the Mets took the field for the first time. Jackie Kennedy gave Americans a tour of the White House, followed a few months later by her husband handling the Cuban Missile Crisis. And in between, Marilyn Monroe died and “West Side Story” won 10 Academy Awards including Best Picture.
This Thursday at 9 PM, Alan Seltzer will focus on the music of 1962 in another Flashback special show on “The Grooveyard”.. We’ll play all the top hits of the year, plus as many bonus hits as possible.
And coming next week, voting will begin for our third annual “Grooveyard Greats” listener survey. Check details and see the results from the first two surveys here in the meantime.
“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 our comments and dedications pages.
