About the Station

Blues, roots, soul and rock n roll, and not just the hits. Best selection of early 50's RnB anywhere. Throw in lots of doowop and New Orleans classics, some rockabilly, Brit invasion, 50's standards, brew it up, that's Oldies and Blues

About cglasow

I grew up listening to 50's rock and roll. I've always loved any music with a roots feel to it, and discovering forgotten RnB, doo wop and rockabilly music played during the 50's is a favorite pasttime. The combination of well known and lesser known doo wop, blues, 50s RnB and rockabilly is somewhat unique and probably not to everyone's taste. People tend to like well-known oldies, or doo wop, or blues, or rockabilly, and live365 features great stations for all these tastes. But for those who like a little more variety I hope you like what you hear on Oldies and Blues. What's great about internet radio and live365 is that you don't need a lot of listeners and for a few dollars a month you can experiment with a format that only a few people might like. Well it turned out that more than just a few people have liked the music selection. The listener response for the four years Oldies and Blues has been on the air has far exceeded even my most optimistic hopes. If you're new to the station I invite you to listen for a few hours. This is the music I enjoy and it just may grow on you.

Listen to an huge selection of bluesy and soulful oldies from the early rock 'n' roll years. Oldies and Blues (coming up on 11 years of broadcasting) features a great selection of those familiar oldies mixed in with a '61 Impala convertible full of rare gems, the finest collection of 50's and 60's era rhythm and blues, soul, and blues on the internet all day every day. Mix in some doo wop, rockabilly, Brit invasion, 50's pop standards, both familiar and not so familiar, for an old time rock and roll playlist that never seems to get stale.

1760 selections from a collection of over 3600 songs on a playlist updated every week. You'll rarely hear the same song twice in any 18 hour period. Check out the partial playlist on my web site at www.oldiesandblues.com.(updated May 5, 2013) The songs are ranked based on nine months statistics using a weighted comparison of the number of listens and the number of times the station was turned off when the song was playing.

Admittedly the playlist consists of mainly my personal favorites. If you're new to the station, tune in for a few hours, if you like the music of the early rock and roll years, you may find many of these songs are your favorites also, and a number of less well-known songs may soon become your favorites.

Thanks for listening.
