The Retro Mix Playlist For 5/28/10

Because I had so much fun last week, I've decided to switch formats from 70s, 80s, and 90s to "real oldies" of the 50s and 60s. Although I will probably do music from the 70s, 80s, and 90s again at some point in the future, it's not where my heart is at the moment.

In order to keep the show fresh and interesting, I've decided to keep the format loose and do different themes/eras each week. What I'll do from week to week is anyone's guess. I hope you are able to join me on this musical joyride.
