The Grooveyard will celebrate National Record Store Day by featuring the great doo wop hits sold at record stores during the early rock era.
Record Store Day was conceived in 2007 at a gathering of independent record store owners and employees as a way to celebrate and spread the word about the unique culture surrounding nearly 1400 independently owned record stores in the US and thousands of similar stores internationally. The first Record Store Day took place on April 19, 2008. Today there are Record Store Day participating stores on every continent except Antarctica.
Host Alan Seltzer will feature more early hits with the Grooveyard Top Ten for October 24, 1957. We’ll also play more of your favorites during the Grooveyard Party hour and update the voting for our Grooveyard Great 88 polls.
Voting continues in the ninth annual Great 88 surveys. Voting for the top hits of 1955 closes Saturday at 10 PM. You can also pick your 10 favorite songs from 1957 and 1960 daily. A full first round schedule and additional information can be found here. You can also find the results of earlier surveys in the Great 88 section.
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.
