60s70s Show features any of the music from 1960 to 1979 with informal, yet
informative, commentary. The central focus is on the music listeners remember
but the other stations forgot. The music selection spans from chart toppers,
mid-chart records, low charters, to some rarities that never charted or were
never even released. Special promo 45 edits are common along with custom
versions heard only on The 60s70s Show. Some of the recordings are so rare that
they simply just don't exist! Many LP cuts are also available to be played. Add
to that, songs that were listed on the British charts, the
Special shows have included:
The Summer Specials, aired on Fridays during June,
going back 40 and 50 years and playing all the music of those Summers.
''The Top 77 of
All Time'', with featured studio
guests, Mike Riccio Tom Natoli, a countdown of the 77 all time favorite hits,
based on listener votes, plus informative commentary. The number 77 is a tribute to WABC.
Regular features include:
· ''The #91s On This Date'' - Mike Riccio, moderator of
Oldies Message Board researches and posts what was #91 on the national
charts on this date in the years from 1960 to 1979. Bob reads Mike's list on
the air, then listeners pick what they want to hear from that list. The result
is an interesting alternative to what is heard on other stations. This started
out on a whim a few years ago when Mike posted a list of songs on The Oldies
Message Board that were on the bottom of the national chart, #100, on that
date in history. The idea caught on and became a regular feature. After a
year’s worth it was moved up to #99. Every year it’s moved up a number to avoid

The 60s70s Show, on the air for over 30 years, had
been hosted by Bob
Radil from January 2007 until September 2010 when the show was cancelled by
WNHU, University of New Haven. On October 8, 2010 The 60s70s Show returned to
the same time slot, Fridays 6PM to 10PM Eastern, as a feature of Rewound Radio, originating live from the
60s70s Show studio facilities in the ''Beautiful, Rural, Connecticut
Countryside''. From these facilities the show had advanced far beyond what was
possible at WNHU. Then came the big move in May, 2017. It was then on to the
new studios in the ''Beautiful, Suburban, Central Connecticut''! The best is
yet to come! Stay tuned!
