Saturday night at 7 PM, “The Grooveyard” celebrates what would have been the 99th birthday of recording executive Leonard Chess with an hour of songs released on Chess Records and it’s subsidiaries. Founded in 1950 and run by Leonard and his brother Phil, the company produced and released many important singles and albums, which are now regarded as central to the rock music canon. Musician and critic Cub Koda described Chess Records as “America’s greatest blues label.”
In another birthday celebration, host Alan Seltzer will also feature cover songs by James Taylor in the “Under the Cover” feature. The Grooveyard Top Ten will feature the hits of March 12, 1962. There’s also time for your requests and dedications during our Grooveyard Party Hour.
Listen to “The Grooveyard” each Saturday night at 7 PM on 88.1 FM on Long Island or by clicking the 88.1 FM link on wcwp.org or via the TuneIn app. You can also follow us on Twitter.
