This week, “The Grooveyard” will look back at the music and events of 1963, while the anniversary of a major event will be noted on the “Saturday Soiree”.
This Thursday at 9 PM, Alan Seltzer will focus on the music of 1963 in a Flashback special show on “The Grooveyard”. We’ll play all the top hits of the year and as many bonus songs from the year as possible. 1963 the year when Lyndon Baines Johnson was sworn in as president following the assassination of John Fitzgerald Kennedy. It was also when James Bond made his way into movie theaters, when Martin Luther King Jr. delivered his “I Have a Dream” speech, and when a group from Liverpool made their way to stateside record stores.
The “Saturday Soiree” will also be inspired by the life of Martin Luther King Jr. this week, when host Scott Perschke features April 4, 1968–the date of the civil rights leader’s assassination–on the Soiree Survey. Keeping with the theme, the first hour will feature protest and social action songs.
Both “The Grooveyard” and the “Saturday Soiree” 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. (You can also click the logo on the left.) Join us on. . .
