Direct from my personal stack of vinyl, you'll hear my encodes of 33's, 45's and 78's. Naturally, the focus will be on my favorite performers who released material during the popularity of the vinyl format. These performers include Lawrence Welk, Alice Lon, The Lennon Sisters, Vikki Carr, The Carpenters, Claudine Longet, Dinah Shore, Doris Day and other artists who have similar musical talents. Artists like Patti Page, Lynn Anderson, The McGuire Sisters, Peggy Lee, Glenn Miller, Peggy Lee, Benny Goodman, Connie Francis, Andy Williams, etc.
The main feature of the station, and what makes it so different from most others is that it heavily features the Lawrence Welk family of musicians. Of course, there is Mr. Welk himself and his wunnerful, wunnerful arrangements. Also featured are the LOVELY Lennon Sisters. The sisters, by age : Dee Dee, Peggy, Kathy, Janet and Mimi. As of this writing, I've got over 200 of their tunes ready for the playlist. In addition to the beautiful Lennons, other members of the Welk family that you'll hear include Guy & Ralna, Sandi & Salli, Norma Zimmer, Bob Ralston, Aladdin, Dick Dale, Clay Hart, Larry Hooper, the ever energetic Alice Lon, and many, many other artists who found their fame by being part of the Lawrence Welk family.
These songs don't come off CD releases. Almost entirely, they come from vinyl transfers I do myself from the 33 and 45 RPM releases. Much of the material you'll hear on this stream has never been released on CD, or MP3, or iTunes. If you are a Lawrence Welk fan, you will love this station. Just please know, I always do my best to get the transfers to sound a wunnerful as possible. But the fact remains that some of the vinyls you'll hear on this stream are over 70 years old. They'll sound their age.
