Music Director for Pop Gold Radio for 30 minutes

Don Tandler seen above with yours truly is the proprietor of Pop Gold Radio which is one of the best oldies stations on the internet.  It is a little sad that terrestrial stations like WCBS-FM are not playing hits from the early era of rock n' roll.  Also their playlist is very limited.

It must be quite expensive to run an internet radio station as Don must incur costs for computer equipment, bandwith, and the music licensing fees.  Don often asks his listeners for donations to help him with these expenses.  It is my pleasure to give him a small donation a few times a year to assist him financially.  In return Don allows his donors to program the station for 1/2 hour.  This is what I picked that was heard on the station from 8:00 - 8:30 this morning.  There was "no method to my madness in picking these records:

  • Sylvia’s Mother - Dr. Hook 
  • Sweet Georgia Brown - Beatles with Tony Sheridan
  • Just Like a Woman - Bob Dylan
  • Tell Me - Rolling Stone
  • My Back Pages - Byrds
  • Mrs. Robinson - Simon and Garfunkel
  • One Man Band - 3 Dog Night
  • Do the Freddy - Freddy and the Dreamers
  • Sweets for my Sweet - Drifters
  • A Boy Named Sue - Johnny Cash
