Boomers Like Their Oldies

Despite all of the stories about the music of the 50s and 60s being phased out, we Baby Boomers still love to hear oldies. In fact this is their favorite music. People in their 50s 60s and 70s are being cheated from their favorite music. Terrestrial radio stations have all but eliminated oldies from their formats yet when I go into stores, oldies are playing and people our age are singing along. The music we grew up with is timeless! Everyone can remember a Beatles tune, or a Leslie Gore song. Turn off FM and turn to the internet to get your dose of oldies. Edgewater Gold Radio preserves all of those great songs and have no intention of playing anything else!

Remembering 1971

We always associate music with certain times in our life. That's why Edgewater Gold Radio emphasizes great times and great memories. Today I want to focus on 1971. It was the year that I graduated High School. The reason why I chose 1971 is because an old friend from my class texted me and reminded me of a reunion they are having later this year. I pulled up the top 100 songs of that year and looking at each of them triggers so many great memories! Here they are!

Jefferson Starship will be appearing at the Rollins Center at Dover Downs on Friday, June 22 at 9:00PM. They are from San Francisco, California and evolved out of the group Jefferson Airplane following the departure of bassist Jack Casady and guitarist Jorma Kaukonen.[2] The band has undergone several major changes in personnel and genres through the years while retaining the same Jefferson Starship name.

New Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Inductees

The 2018 inductees for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame were announced Wednesday morning, and this year’s class includes a trio of ’80s legends: Bon Jovi, Dire Straits and The Cars. Also included this year are progressive rock icons the Moody Blues and the late jazz/soul songstress Nina Simone. Additionally, rock pioneer Sister Rosetta Tharpe will earn a special honor, the Award for Early Influence, to recognize her contributions to the nascent genre. Perhaps the biggest question surrounding the upcoming Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony is whether or not it will bring estranged Bon Jovi guitarist Richie Sambora back into the fold. Sambora abruptly left the group in 2013 while in t

More Mass Murders, More Greed, Denial and Evil and Yet Again, Congress Does Nothing!

We don't normally post disturbing news stories but the events that unfolded in Florida this week really angered me. Steps to controlling this growing problem are so simple yet politicians are so greedy and self centered that they refuse to take any action. Evil continues to spread through our country! Below is an article published by Rolling Stone Magazine. In the wake of yet another mass shooting in America, the predictable responses are already pouring in. The do-nothing crowd of NRA-funded Republican politicians are mechanically offering their utterly meaningless "thoughts and prayers" and blaming everything and anything other than guns. Meanwhile, the gun control crowd (of which I'm a p

Gladys Knight Explains Why She Still Looks and Feels Great!

This article was published by Billboard News on Feb. 13, 2018. Gladys Knight caused the Internet to collectively clutch its pearls when she stepped out for Clive Davis’ annual Grammy party last month. Now, as the saying goes “black don’t crack,” but it is understood that it may begin to sag at some point. Not for Ms. Knight! The 73-year-old stunned wearing a floor-length gown while showing off her mega-watt smile, smooth skin and minimal make up to enhance her natural beauty. Folks began to talk and assumed while no one was looking, she got on that midnight train not to Georgia, but to the nearest plastic surgeon. It’s been about two weeks since Davis’ party and Knight took to social media t

Good News Station? -AM, FM, Satellite, doesn't Matter!

AM radio looks like it's on it's way out. More and more AM stations are going dark. This is because there are so many superior choices out there. I do believe that if there is a reliable news station, that is news all the time, it could survive in a changing radio market. In 2012 when Hurricane Sandy hit New Jersey, we lost power for more than a week. We had no access to any news in the outside world. I relied totally on 1010 WINS, the news station in New York City. They provided me all the information I needed during this very trying time. It didn't matter that WINS was an AM station, they were a consistent, reliable resource to us during this period. Today WINS is one of the top stations i

Herman's Hermits Featured on Monday's Midday Cafe

Join Edgewater Gold Radio Monday, February 12, 2018 on the Midday Cafe from 10:00 - 11:00am as we feature the music of Herman's Hermits. Herman's Hermits formed in Manchester in 1964. Originally called Herman & The Hermits, they were discovered by Harvey Lisberg, who signed them up to management. Lisberg sent a return plane ticket to Mickie Most so that he could come up from London to see the band play in Bolton. Most became the group's record producer, controlling the band's output. He emphasized a simple, non-threatening, clean-cut image, although the band originally played R&B numbers.This helped Herman's Hermits become hugely successful in the mid-1960s.

No More Looking For That Lost Shaker of Salt for Jimmy Buffett

According to Billboard,Jimmy Buffett is bidding farewell to the days wasted away in Margaritaville, searching for his lost shaker of salt. The singer revealed to The New York Times Thursday (Feb. 8) that he’s been following a strict diet recently: “No sugar and no carbs. Except on Sunday.” He also stopped smoking weed and instead opts for vape oils sometimes after working. Even though he's giving up the sugary margarita's he's drink of choice is still tequila on the rocks with lots of water. So he still may be "wasting away in Margaritaville but not drinking it!

CD's Fading Fast!

The days of the CD's are numbered.he rise of streaming music services such as Apple Music, Spotify and Pandora, as well as the availability of digitally downloadable tracks and albums, are making the CD extinct. The latest nail in the coffin comes from the nation's largest store-based electronics retailer, Best Buy, which is reportedly planning to quit selling music CDs at its stores by July 1, according to a report in Billboard. Another retail giant, Target, is also considering a change in how it acquires CDs, which could reduce inventory in its stores and leave fewer choices for music fans, Billboard also reported. So in a year or so, CD's will go the way of the 8 track, and cassette. Alth

Farewell My Sweet Molly, We'll Be Together Again!

This past weekend, we lost our beloved cat Molly passed away due to advanced kidney disease. On Saturday morning, she was behaving normal. She slept next to me. We got up, she took her medicine, she ate and was sitting with us as we watched our Saturday morning TV shows. At 2:00 pm, I dropped Jim off at work and was back home in twenty minutes. I found Molly in distress. She was urinating and vomiting all over and couldn’t stop. She couldn’t get comfortable, couldn’t sit. She roamed the house looking for some comfort. I wanted so bad to ease her discomfort but I could do nothing. She was rushed to the animal hospital. The doctors found that she had lost another pound and a half since her la

Not Interested in the Super Bowl? Try the Puppy Bowl

Tomorrow is Super Bowl Sunday and millions of TV’s will be tuned to the big game. There are lots of us like myself who are really not at all interested in football and really don’t care who wins. Now I appreciate that this is an American tradition but for some reason I have never had an interest in sports. So what are your alternatives? You can catch a movie, go to a fine restaurant or take a little drive. You can be assured that being that everyone is glued to their TV’s you can do anything you’d like. When I lived in New Jersey and traveled to Delaware on weekends, the roads were especially clear on Superbowl Sunday. They were even more clear then on holidays like Christmas or Thanksgivin
