RE: "The Lost 45s" with Barry Scott back on web
I've only heard a couple of your shows via airchecks, but I have to say I
really like your program when it was on WZLX 100.7. You sure do play a lot
of "oh wow" songs that I'd never hear on the radio again. Hope you get a
live gig again and soon!
I play many of those same songs on my show that aired every saturday 6AM
until 2PM on 1570 then- WYHI Fernandina Beach, FL. (Jacksonville ADI, 5kw)
My playlist is from about 1,000 selections of personal CDs. I played mostly
70s with a few later 60s Pop Hits many of the "oh wow" never played hits
alongside the usual staples. I've had a lot of response to it. I've
resurrected the show to a 4 hour gig once a month during a transmitter/DX
test on 10kw WGSR 1570. Audience is from New Zealand to Finland... It's a
lot of fun to do, as I can tell it is for you from listening to the tapes I
have from 'ZLX. It took very little to get the Manager to let me do it (just
a quarter hour of a test show). It doesn't fit into "The Music of Your Life"
format at all...
Again, I hope that you get to convince someone to pick you back up! And of
course, be sure to let us all know here on the list!
