Publisher's Summary

How can you search for oldies you want to hear when you've forgotten them?

Radio doesn't play a lot of those oldies anymore, even though you would enjoy hearing them again. This book tells you all about the lost or forgotten oldies, as well as history about the artists and their songs.

Here are some examples of the music history and trivia you'll find in this book:

  • Doo-wop, Country, R&B, instrumentals, and novelty records that made the top 40 but are now ignored by radio stations
  • an oldie that had four different versions all hit the top 40 the same week
  • an artist who had two one-hit wonders under two different names
  • a group that kept their first hit single from being totally successful by releasing a follow-up single too quickly
  • several groups that still had success after their lead singer left for a solo career
  • a future star who first appeared on a hit record as a voice on a phone call
  • an artist who had to change the lyrics of his song because he mentioned Hush Puppies
  • an overdub of one letter in a song that was necessary to get airplay
  • a Country artist who hit the R&B chart and then the Hot 100 chart before the Country chart
  • a video for a record that was "lost" for over 20 years

A Thrill to Narrate!

Having spent several decades in the broadcasting industry, it was great to have the opportunity to narrate this excellent book that targets the history of some of the great musicians who we don't seem to hear anymore. For those who remember and those too young to remember this is a fun memory jogger and education into the roots of our musical culture.
