It's live, it's fun, it's thoughtful. Listen in, call in, ask your own questions.

Your host, The Professor, has never understood the point of “Oldies” shows that simply play one track after another (“Rock Around the Clock” followed by “Get a Job”) with no attempt at putting the recordings into their musical (and social) context. Isn’t it interesting, for example, that the records produced out of the Sun studios in Memphis in the mid 50s were all made by the sons of sharecroppers, who had recently moved into the cities. The Professor plays lesser-known songs by well-known singers like Buddy Holly and Carl Perkins, and also some great tracks by not-so-well-known singers such as Bobby Charles and Roscoe Gordon. He also talks about some of the musicians he’s met including Jerry Lee Lewis and Billy Lee Riley. He’ll tell you who played on each track, who wrote the song, where it was recorded, and what the singer did later in his/her career. It’s fun, you hear the best music, and you get to appreciate one of the 20th century’s great art-forms – the 2-minute record.
