This Week on The Dusty Attic

Tune in every Monday on Mushroom Escape to The Dusty Attic, with your host, Ryan O. We’ll reel off a couple of programs from radio’s golden age; that blissful period between 1930 and somewhere in the early 1950’s when radio entertainment dominated in America.

On the next episode of The Dusty Attic, we’ll feature an episode of the Phil Harris/Alice Faye Show, in which Phil and Frankie try to donate blood. Of course, fans of the show will only have one question… How much is blood and how much is alcohol?

A tribute to Charlie Daniels and more songs about days of the week on The Early Years!

Affter you've enjoyed Mushroom FM's tech magazine show, Mosen At Large, tomorrow afternoon from 02:00 to 05:00, during which I hope all your tech questions get answered, don't touch that dial and join me in The Early Years where and when you'll enjoy the best music from Rock and Roll's Golden Age (its first quarter century) with an occasional nod to other decades and genres.

The Doo-Wop Corner

The best addition to a warm summer night, a chat by the fire, a walk in the park a ride in a convertable automobile with that special someone is good music. Some of the best music of our time was recorded in the 1950's and 1960's. Some artists re-recorded the same music in later decades. The music I am speaking of is Doo-wop music. It has groove, it has feeling, it is magic. Many tunes bring back memories and help to make new ones.
