Tony Warner & Timeless Tracks blends a mix of R&B, Doo-Wop, Rockabilly and Teen Pop from the late 50's and early 60s as you would've heard it on the radio back then. From the mid-50's until the mid-60's, Arkansas native Buddy Deane hosted a tremendously popular daily TV teen dance show in Baltimore called the Buddy Deane Show. Before that he was a successful radio D.J. It was Buddy's show which influenced John Waters (of Baltimore) to write Hairspray! Buddy helped give a start to many rock-n-roll singer's careers. In other cases he helped further careers through their exposure on his show. Buddy was a gracious gentleman who has never been forgotten by an entire generation in Maryland. In this show,Tony presents an interview he did with Buddy about how he gave a future rock-n-roll icon his big break in 1953 at a Sunday afternoon dance in Baltimore. From the Hits to the Forgotten to the Unknown, Tony plays it all in every show. Here's the playlist for this edition of Timeless Tracks with Tony Warner:
1. Sugar Sugar Cadillacs 2. That Greasy Kids Stuff Janie Grant 3. Sunday & Me Jay & The Americans 4. A Date with Loneliness Sandy Selsie 5. Temptation Every Bros. 6. Connie O Four Seasons 7. Dust My Broom Elmore James 8. Tell Me Dick & Deedee 9. Ain't Nothing But A House party Show Stoppers 10. The Stroll Diamonds 11. Why Don't You Believe Me Diadems 12. Buddy Deane Interview 13.

============================================ Rock-it Radio Program Webpage Reminder
Remember, if the show
that you want to hear is getting close to the bottom of the list of
radio shows, you should tune in as soon as you can. These shows to have a
high audio quality require a lot of internet bandwidth and memory. And
currently we can only afford the 25 latest shows online here at Rock-it
Radio. So, when a new show is put online it knocks the oldest one off
the Rock-it Radio archives page. Usually a show will at least last 16
to 20 days, once it is placed in the archives.
