ADAM MCKINNEY: WILL OLDIES RADIO SOON BITE THE DUST? >>>

Volcano-cover-artilce-7-16 When I was 8-years-old, my parents and I rode in the car as “Yesterday” came over the airwaves. My mother turned it up and slyly looked over at my father while I watched in the back seat. “Who sings this song, Adam?” she asked. “The Beatles,” I responded.

Then came the party trick. “Yes, but which Beatle?” She knew I had the correct answer; we’d discovered this the other day.

“Paul McCartney,” I said, almost as proud as she was.

Thus were the teachings of 97.3FM KBSG, the radio station that boasted “Good Times, Great Oldies.” I’d been listening for as long as I could remember, and the tones and melodies were by then irretrievably burned in my mind.

Fast forward to the present. As I meet with Fastlane Phillips, the former long-time DJ of KBSG, it is to discuss a rather worrisome thought of mine: the death of the oldies. Read what I discovered here.
