oldies music online from Bob Pegg Records Radio on Live365 Internet Radio
DJ: bob pegg
Location: Tacoma, WA

How it all began: Born in southern California in 1948 of Irish and Italian descent, by 1959 and 1960 I was living in west side Portland Oregon attending Couch Grade School in the Nob Hill District. I sold papers on the streets for extra spending money on West Burnside near my home and also at Multnomah Stadium where the Portland Beavers played their baseball. The local rock station then was KISN, and I oftentimes would walk past the big glass windows at 10th and West Burnside and see the disc jockeys at work. Back then I bought a few 45’s from a couple of small local record shops-one on N.W. 21st Avenue near Glisan or Hoyt Streets and also at one near 23rd and West Burnside.
By 1961 our family moved from Portland to Tacoma Washington. We moved from a very urban area to a suburb and there were no record stores nearby so I mostly enjoyed my music on Seattle’s KJR. I gravitated toward the teenage sounds of the early 1960’s such as the Beach Boys, Four Seasons, Neil Sedaka, Lesley Gore and others but later liked the mersey beat sound of the Beatles and Dave Clark Five.
By 1967 I entered college over at Central Washington State College (now Central Washington University) and became friends with a few like minded music lovers. Four of us would go on short record hunting trips as well as scour the local second hand shops and thrift stores in the Ellensburg area. On weekends we would share our finds on our turnables in our dorm rooms. I also got to be a disc jockey for college credit on the college campus radio station KCWS (now KCWU) and enjoyed the experience. I started to appreciate a lot of sunshine pop music such as the Association, Turtles, Buckinghams, Roger Nichols and a small circle of friends, Yellow Balloon and many more.
After my college days I started buying records from more sources especially through the mail and started selling my extras through the print magazines Goldmine and later Discoveries. Around the year 2000, I went to the world wide web and continue to sell records on ebay under my ID peggrecords and my private website at
During the last 40+ years since college, I’ve collected, bought and sold many of the old 45’s and still hunting them today. Much good music is also on compact disc. I hope to bring to my listeners some good memories of their youth from my oldies broadcasts. Feel free to email me at

Favorite Albums

Yellow Balloon - Yellow Balloon
Perfect sunshine pop of the late 1960's, played it a lot in college over in Ellensburg over 40 years ago!

Turtles - Greatest Hits
My favorite sunshine pop styled band that made it big. Saw them live both in 1968 over in Ellensburg on Central's campus and in 2008 and 2009 at the Puyallup Fair. "Happy Together" would be my favorite song by them.

Beach Boys - Greatest Hits
If I had to pick one favorite all around band, the Beach Boys would be it. I favor their early to mid 1960's material.

Four Seasons - Greatest Hits
Great harmony and memories from my youth! Got to finally see them live in September 2008 at the Western Washington Fair in Puyallup Washington.

Lesley Gore - Greatest Hits
I love the girl teenage sound of the early 1960's, Lesley probably has more of my favorite songs of that style than anyone. I saw her live in January 2008 at the Admiral Theatre in Bremerton Washington.
