This Week: American Originals


Beach Boys With A SurfboardWe celebrate many American originals this week on “The Grooveyard” and the “Saturday Soiree”.National Recording Registry

Thursday night at 9 PM on “The Grooveyard”, host Alan Seltzer features an hour of recordings from the Grooveyard era named to the National Recording Registry of the Library of Congress.  The Registry is a list of sound recordings that “are culturally, historically, or aesthetically important, and/or inform or reflect life in the United States.” Only a few recordings are selected yearly, making the group very exclusive.  Selections range from hits by the Ronettes and Chuck Berry to rare records by Elvis Presley and Mel Brooks.  The evening’s Top Ten @ 10 will feature the hits of March 5, 1961.

SatSoiree logoThe “Saturday Soiree” will feature a group often called “America’s Band”, the Beach Boys.  The hour of hits and favorites is on the anniversary of the first solo single released by a member of the group, “Caroline No” by Brian Wilson in 1966.  Later that year, the song was included on the iconic “Pet Sounds” album even though Brian was the only group member to appear on the track.  The week’s Soiree Survey offers the top songs of March 7, 1969.  Hosted by Alan Seltzer, the “Saturday Soiree” is scheduled to begin at  7 PM, but may be delayed slightly if the LIU Post Pioneers basketball team have a playoff game.WCWP logo new
