We’ll put on our Blue Suede Shoes, along with Pink Shoelaces and other clothes when host Alan Seltzer features songs with colors in the title Thursday night at 9 PM on “The Grooveyard”. The show honors the recording of Carl Perkins’ hit on this date in 1955. The Top Ten @ 10 features the hits of November 19, 1962.
First-round voting ends Thursday at 11 PM in our fourth annual Grooveyard Great 88 listener poll. You can choose your 10 favorite songs of 1955 and earlier. Choose songs from the list, or write in your own favorites. Details and a full schedule are on our first round page here. Participation in the first round has been phenomenal, with five of the nine first-round surveys setting record highs for the number of votes cast. The final round begins over the weekend.
