"The Lost 45s" with Barry Scott back on web

Hey All: Just a word on "The Lost 45s" show. After leaving terrestrial radio in '99--when my syndicator turned to all-talk and the Boston affiliate (93.7) changed formats--I've concentrated solely on internet radio, creating a site called OldiesCentral.com, which plays all Top 40 hits from 1955-1989. "The Lost 45s" airs 24/7 on my web site as well at http://www.lost45.com.

As a lover of the medium since the age of 5, I would like to return to terrestrial radio--but finding it hard to even get the show back on in Boston, where it was #1 25-54 on 4 different radio stations every single book for 13 years! Radio has become so research driven and so boring, that Program Director's are too afraid to "gamble" on even a well-known, highly rated specialty show like "The Lost 45s." 

I'll keep trying though...looking for a Program Director (like a few that I used to work with) who have a love for radio, music and the product--who see what a specialty show like this one has to offer--mainly a chance to bring new listeners and advertisers to their format. 
Still get hundreds of e-mails a week, almost 2 years later, asking why it's not on the air in Boston. I don't really know what to tell them, other than radio is simply too dull right now--and ripe for the picking by satellite and internet channels. 

Thanks for all the kind words over the years and hope to talk to you all in the near future. If you have any questions about internet radio (I am located in Boston at a company called RadioAMP) please send them here!
