CD Reviews

Not known over in England.........

"The beauty of this series for British Fans of pop music is that in 1964, in particular, the songs of this year,s Cruisin, cd were almost all non-hits in the UK. "Remember Walking in the Sand" and "Chapel of Love" were hits but the rest were not known to the masses.British pop was the in thing of course. We had no such thing as the radio stations reprised on this series at home but l964 saw the beginning of the off-shore "pirate stations" which were based on American Top 40 Radio. You discovered The Beatles, we discovered Rock and Roll Radio. Oh, I almost forgot - this cd is 45minutes of great sounds, commercials and excellent quality. I feel nostalgic for WHX Radio - and I never heard it! That,s how good it is. There,s not a duff album in the series. Brilliant."

"To the person who was shocked that there was a news bulletin about an armed robbery while the music played...You must be too young to remember "real radio". That is the beauty of the Cruisin' series - you get to hear the innocense, the newness of pop radio and rock 'n' roll. What you hear on this (and other CDs in the series) is what radio of the 50's and 60's was like. Yes, they talked over the intro but they played the entire song - they didn't cut if off 15 seconds from the end! You can't find radio like this anymore! Look at the mixture of songs on this CD - they are from many genre. If you listend to Top 40 radio in the 50's or 60's this is the series to get. You can't explain to anyone what Top 40 radio was like in those times; you have to hear it. This is great! Now my kids know what real radio sounded like. The series is all good!"

"For the guy from England, yeah i never heard of WHX either, but I heard of WHK in Cleveland, but in defference to the other reviewier, WKYC was the station to listen to from Cleveland in those days. You both are probably too young to temember when this stuff was new. And yes, Johnny Holiday is still around. Having lived in Washington, as I said in my Cruising 1969 reveiw, he was on WWDC in the morning, opposite old Harve. Basically changed the dial back and forth. He still is heard regionally, in the DC area doing football play by play and pregame shows; as well as nattionally on ABC radio doing sports news.As the case with the entire Cruisin' series; this one is just as excellent as all the others."
