Friends,

I think it is time again to call attention to a really cool online archive of rock 'n' roll radio programs:

Throughout the 1980s and 1990s (most of it during the pre-Internet era for many of us) James Marshall played CDs and records every Saturday on radio station WFMU in East Orange, New Jersey. On air his name was "The Hound". He played all manner of 1950s and 1960s rock 'n' roll, rockabilly, surf, garage, blues, doo wop, soul, and hillbilly. Really great stuff. He had in-studio and phone-in interviews with legendary musicians (some who are no longer with us) and almost-famous superfans. One ambitious fan named Brian Redman collects tapes of The Hound's programs and makes them available to hear on the Internet at this website:

http://thehound.net/

Brian has just added 16 new programs to the archive. I think you'll really enjoy hearing some of these programs.

The Hound is still around and has a blog here (highly recommended):

As to that radio station that aired his programs, WFMU is a popular non-commercial radio station in the New York City/New Jersey area, with similar DJ programs these days, notably with Dave the Spazz, Rex, and Michael Shelly. They keep their programs archived for years. You can hear them here:

If all this doesn't keep you busy enough you might give my blog a peek, too:
