This Weekend: Remembering the Don of Doo-Wop


The Grooveyard pays tribute to Don K. Reed this Saturday night. Reed, a disc jockey on the iconic oldies radio station WCBS-FM and the long-time host of “The Doo Wop Shop”, passed away last month.

Don called Grooveyard host Alan Seltzer the “keeper of the flame” of the early music during a 2014 visit to the show, and was so popular with artists from the genre that they wrote songs for him. Along with sharing many doo-wop favorites, we’ll sample a few of those songs. An “Under the Covers” segment also focuses on “In the Still of the Night”, the Five Satins doo wop classic that was always #1 on CBS-FM’s Top 500 surveys. A tribute to Reed is available here.

The Grooveyard Top 10 will feature the hits of August 13, 1960, and we’ll play your favorites and share a few cuts from the newly released Everly Brothers CD during the Grooveyard Party hour.

Listen to “The Grooveyard” following “Rick’s Redneck Ranch” each Saturday night at 7 PM on 88.1 FM on Long Island or by clicking the 88.1 FM link on wcwp.org, via the TuneIn app. or the  WCWP app on your iPhone or Android device.  You can also follow us on Twitter. and on the Facebook groups for the show and WCWP.
