Spotlight on Bob Radil
If you are an oldies geek Bob Radil's 60s and 70s show heard 6 PM - 10 PM Friday nights on WNHU from the University of New Haven is for you. It can be heard in the New Haven area on 88.7 FM, but I of course must listen on the internet. Bob plays requests that are sent to him via e-mail or through the oldies message board. Most of the songs that Bob plays are rarities which are never heard on any terrestrial oldies or classic rock station. Bob knows the music and the artists. I try to listen to at least part of his show on Friday nights. I get home about 6 PM, eat dinner and watch Jeopardy so the earliest I can access the show is 7:30. Bob, Mike Riccio, tom Natoli and perhaps a few others are known as the "Chart Guys". I am sure they ahve memorized every WMCA, WABC, and Billboard survey from the 60s and 70s.
