We’ll get skeptical on “The Grooveyard” tonight when we celebrate what may be National Skeptics Day. Depending on the source, he holiday is observed on one of four different days of the year, including November 4th. We’ll play songs offering reasons for skepticism.
The “Under the Covers” segment will keep in the spirit as we look at “Bye Bye Love” by the Everly Brothers and other artists. No skepticism is needed for the rest of the show, since we’ll play the top hits of November 4, 1959 on the Grooveyard Top Ten and play your requests during the Grooveyard Party Hour.
In addition, we’ll be giving a pair of tickets to see The Doo-Wop Project at the Madison Theatre in Rockville Center on November 26. In their shows, the group traces the evolution of Doo Wop from the classic sound of five guys singing tight harmonies on a street corner to the biggest hits on the radio today.
Voting continues in our sixth annual Grooveyard Great 88 listener survey. The poll for the best songs from 1956 closes Saturday at 10 PM at end of Saturday’s show. You can also choose your 10 favorite songs from 1958 and 1961, and the survey for the best of 1959 just opened. You can also find the results of earlier surveys in the Great 88 section.
