Listening to the Time Machine on Pop Gold Radio

It is very hard to listen to terrestrial radio when there are so many excellent internet radio stations available.  They don't have to be concerned about consultants, ratings, and playlists.  This station is run by Don Tandler who also works at New Jersey 101.5.

I am rarely home at on Saturday afternoons when Don has his Time Machine Show where he plays a countdown from a top 40 radio station from the 50s, 60s, or 70s.  Today he played the Fabulous 57 Countdown of May 18, 1968 on WMCA.  Back then Dan Daniel played the Top 25 from 4 PM - 7 PM.  We had to get Go Magazine to see the entire WMCA playlist.  I always enjoy hearing the records that did not chart very high back then.

The highlight of today's show was hearing Tip Toe Through the Tulips by Tiny Tim.  Don gave a very detailed history of Herbert Koury's career.  Enjoy!
