Moments In Time – Looking Back

Posted by Tom Locke on August 26th, 2010 filed in History, Life, Music

As previously mentioned on my blog, for the past decade I have enjoyed contributing a weekly feature on music for the longest running live Internet radio show, Treasure Island Oldies  (www.treasureislandoldies.com).    The format of the feature is similar to “The Rest of the Story” spot made famous by the late, great American journalist, Paul Harvey. 

The show, which is hosted by my good friend Michael Godin, airs Sunday evenings from 6:00 pm – 10:00 pm Pacific time. 

On the upcoming Sunday August 29th show, I will be joining Michael as a cohost as we feature and rebroadcast ten past “Moments In Time” that have aired over the last decade. 

Here’s an excerpt from the show that first aired in October 2005:

MANY PEOPLE WILL TELL YOU THAT ROCK ‘N’ ROLL TURNED THE MUSIC INDUSTRY UPSIDE DOWN IN THE MID TO LATE 50’S.  IT INTRODUCED THE WORLD TO A LOT OF NEW TALENT.  IT ALSO WAS CAUSE FOR CASULTY – IN THE SENSE THAT MANY ESTABLISHED POP ARTISTS WERE UNSUCCESSFUL IN MAKING THE TRANSITION TO THE “NEW SOUND”. 

ONE VERY SUCCESSFUL BALLADIER FROM THE EARLY 50’S WENT SO FAR AS TO RETIRE IN 1956 AT THE RIPE OLD AGE OF 27.  BUT HE CAME BACK WITH A VENGENCE IN 1958.  AND I’LL BE BACK WITH MORE ON THIS MOMENT IN TIME AFTER THIS.

And here’s the first 30+ seconds of this song.  Just click on  Don’t Let Go 

Hope you get the opportunity to listen in on Sunday to hear the rest of the song and find out who that magical voice was.
