WIBG's Joe Niagra recreates the radio of '57
hyperbolium | Earth, USA | 06/07/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"It's hard to remember that radio used to be more than a medium for playing commercials. Sure, it did plenty of that, but it was also a community focal point, and never more so during the teen empowerment of the late 50s.The Crusin' series recreates these years with full radio programs that blend cherry-picked hits of the era with period commercials, radio spots and brilliant radio personalities.Joe Niagra of Philadelphia's WIBG kicks it off with "If you're ready, this rockin' bird will fly!" and he doesn't let-up. His rhyming patter is spellbinding, and the music, ads and station promos all fit together into a brilliant, live work of art.If you were lucky enough to be glued to the AM radio in your Chevy in '57 this is a terrific trip down memory lane. If you didn't have that fortune, this is a good chance to enjoy a taste of what you missed."
Good re-creation of radio days but not good music source

"An interesting format, a slice of 1957 radio. Unfortunately, that includes some scratches/blips in the music from the old vinyl records. There is also some deejay talking into or right up to the music. These are things to consider if you want to rip the music.

FYI: I've been a record collector and sometimes deejay for 50 years."
