The Retro Mix Playlist For 5/21/10

For this show, I traveled even further back in time with Sherman and Mr. Peabody as I did a "real oldies" show featuring music from the 50s and 60s. More importantly than it being fun for me, the listeners were into the golden oldies I was spinning as well. Because the songs of that era were short by today's standards (a few of the tunes I featured were less than 2 minutes), it left little room for BS-ing around on my part. As a result, it was a little more frantic in the studio than normal, but it was a fun frantic. Due to it getting so damn hot in the studio during the warmer months and because I was bopping to the oldies throughout the show, I literally worked up a sweat. Since the show turned out so well and to shake things up a bit, I'm going to start doing a "real oldies" show once a month in the Retro Mix time slot.
