If you love the Fabulous Fifties, this is the medley for you! Yes, it’s another trip inside the archives so get ready to party!
As an added bonus, you get to hear a DJ throughout today’s medley, but it’s not my voice you’ll be hearing this time. It’s the voice of John Dolan, a 1950s and 60s Canadian radio legend in places like CHED in Edmonton, Alberta, and CKEY and CHUM in Toronto.
In 2007, John appeared from out of nowhere to inform me that he loved Streamingoldies and even though he was retired from radio, he wanted to help me out any way he could.
For the next four years, John was a constant presence in my email folder, sending me an endless supply of jingles and liners. And it wasn’t just emails. During our many hours of talking on the telephone, I would listen to this marvelous gentleman share stories of what radio had been in the Fifties and Sixties.
And he did love the Fifties … with a passion! That is why today’s Fifties medley could only have one DJ taking you through all of it. John may have sadly passed away in 2011, but around here, he is – and always will be – the voice of the Fifties.
