Hello Folks and Welcome to Update February 2020!
Update this month is a little late because the month got off to a busy start, as I honored the Three Stars we lost on February 3, 1959. This year’s anniversary was particularly harrowing for me, however educational and touching at the same time.
At any rate, I’m ready to move on to what’s planned for Retro Dee’s Guide To The Best Era Ever and I hope you are too!
My plan is to begin “revamping” the 50’s Study Hall section. I will be adding new groups to the Top Groups of the 1950’s Page, I’ll also be moving the generic “Boy Stars” section into more specific categories. So stay tuned for that. My goal is to make 50’s Study Hall larger, and an easier reference section for you to navigate.
As you can tell by Monday’s post, “Fifties Foto Flashback” has returned for Season 2! What makes it Season 2? Well I don’t know, exactly. I just felt like starting a new season after a year of posting one photo per month. The first Season had 9 “episodes”, each of which featured a photo from the 1950’s. These photos are from the public domain and are of regular folks and also feature some of the Stars of the day.
And don’t forget! To sweeten your Valentine’s Weekend, there’s The Grooveyard’s 6th Annual Love Song Survey! D.J. Alan Seltzer will be counting down 40 great love songs in the order of which we listeners voted for them on The Grooveyard on Saturday February 15, 2020.
You can listen to The Grooveyard each Saturday night (7 PM ET, 6 Central and 4PM Pacific) by clicking the 88.1 FM link on wcwp.org or via the TuneIn app. or the 88.1 FM button on the WCWP app for Android or iPhones.
I will be revealing my picks (the songs I voted for) in a future post, so stay tuned!
Thank you to all who read this blog. It’s truly a labor of love, one that I enjoy, and I hope y’all do too.
