Songs about mining and minerals this week on The Early Years!

join me for The Early Years where you'll hear the best music from Rock and Roll's Golden Age (its first quarter century) with an occasional nod to other decades and genres.
It's more than a nod to other decades and genres this week as I begin what will be a 2-part, listener-suggested theme, "songs about mining and minerals". Before that, however, I'll pay a brief tribute to two entertainers who passed away in the last couple of weeks.

A show of themes and variations this week on The Early Years!

I have a variety of things this week. In hour 1, it's the final part of my 9-part, listener-suggested theme begun Nov. 2, 2019, "Seconds" (the songs not the time interval). If an artist's first song reached #1, what did their second song do?
I'll pick up the theme in January 1976 and continue to the end of what I consider to be Rock and Roll's Golden Age, its first quarter century, 1979.

"Seconds": the penultimate edition this week on The Early Years!

This week, it's part 8 of my mammoth, multi-part, listener-suggested theme begun Nov. 2, 2019, "Seconds" (the songs not the time interval). If an artist's first song reached #1, what did their second song do? As you'll hear, some did well and others didn't and you may hear some songs you haven't heard in a long time if ever, and at least one you probably won't want to hear ever again!

Remembering Jack Scott and 1959 music this week on The Early Years!

Like Snow White FM, The Early Years doesn't take a break either, even if there are those who wish it would. That's because The Early Years precedes Snow White FM and Snow White FM follows The Early Years. Cool that.
Syntactically, it's the end of the decade even though the Common Era started in year 1 not year 0. 60 years ago, the fifties decade was becoming the sixties decade even though the purists dispute that; just like they believe that 2020 is the end of a decade rather than the beginning of one.

Christmas is all about tradition

The presents are wrapped, the turkey is waiting to be stuffed and roasted (unless you're Dave), and you now can hopefully enjoy a bit of down time before the big day itself. Why not pour a glass of your favourite Christmas cheer and join me for some Christmas traditions, tonight from 09:00 until midnight North American Eastern Time on Mushroom FM.
