It will be a Phil Spector spectacle Saturday night on “The Grooveyard”.
Host Alan Seltzer will celebrate the anniversary of the release of “A Christmas Gift for You from Phil Spector” by sharing an hour of songs from the iconic producer and songwriter. The album’s release on November 22, 1963 was eclipsed in history by another newsworthy event the same day, but has had a major effect on music history. We’ll play songs produced–and sung–by Spector during the tribute. His hits will also be featured during the Under the Covers segment.
In addition, the Grooveyard Top 10 will feature the hits of November 21, 1959 and play more of your favorites during the Grooveyard Party hour.

Pick your 15 favorites in each of the three polls, covering songs that were hits in 1957 and earlier, 1958-1960 and 1961-1963. You can vote daily through December 12th at 10 PM.
