My daddy was a traveling German Shepherd and momma was a pitbull. Sometime during the sex crazed seventies, I was born into a single parent litter and later fostered to a pack of wild wolves. Sometime around 1980 I discovered music. Maybe it was the passion of "One in a Million You" that reeled me in. Maybe it was the hypnotic flow of "Take Your Time (Do It Right)" that had me hooked. Maybe it was simply the reaction I got from all the bitches in the neighborhood whenever I arrived on the scene with my ghetto blaster and the freshest tunes (on cassette of course)! Usually they only cared for me when they were "in heat" , but suddenly I became "Top Dawg" of the hood!! Man those big ghetto blasters sure used alot of batteries! I had to steal money from my own momma's purse just to buy the batteries because as Yarbrough and Peoples taught me no matter what..... "Don't Stop The Music"!! It was worth it though to keep everything in proper perspective and the other wolves in line. It was during this time that I started to experience other cultures like Poodles, Pugs, etc. I'll never forget a wild night with two female boxers with "White Horse" jammin' in the background! To this day I have no clue what they put in my dog biscuit! All I know is that I got faded and x-rated and I hit 'em up doggystyle of course!! Good stuff! Well here we are in 2008 and I am doing alright for an "old dog". I am here because it is my mission to keep my music and yours ALIVE! So here I am at your service...DJ Lovedawg!! Your favorite dawg!! Your favorite DJ And maybe...just maybe....your baby's daddy!! (I don't own up to anything from 1984-1989! It's all a blur.) I sure am glad I don't have to pay puppy support!!Well kick back, get retro and listen to some jams you haven't heard since you were a pup! Peace out and lots of love my brothers and sisters! Let's go back in time and make beautiful music together! Because nothing is as refreshing as (inhale)......(exhale)...a one hitter!!
p.s. I understand that the discussion over "one hit wonders" is debatable. When choosing the criteria for making my station playlist, I simply did the following:
I included any artist, group or collaboration that had at least one performing artist that appeared one time on the Billboard Top 40 chart between December 1979 through December 1989. Some very debatable choices include "USA for Africa", "Artists Against Apartheid", songs that include duets between one established artist and an unknown ala Elton John with Jennifer Rush, KC with Teri DeSario, etc. My criteria is simple :
If the artist or act is listed only once on the chart (taken from Joel Whitburn's book of Top 40 hits 1955-present), it was included, PERIOD.Thanks for listening to my station!
