About the Station

Golden oldies from the 60s and late 50s. Like the 57 Chevy, these are the songs that stood the test of time. All the hits and lots of hidden gems too.

About Dan Murphy

I grew up in Detroit and was in junior high in 1955, so I was catching the Rock and Roll wave as soon as it started. Through the late fifties, I listened to Detroit DJs like Mickey Shorr, Casey Kasem (who was born in Detroit and was the original "Jack the Bellboy" on WJBK), Tom Clay, Lee Allen, Ed McKenzie and others. In the early 60s, I was working for WJBK and WJLB, and had relocated to Boston where I was on the air at WTBS and listening to Arnie Ginsberg and Fenway on WMEX.

It started around 1955, with Buddy Holly, Bill Haley, Carl Perkins, Chuck Berry, Fats Domino, and, of course, Elvis. Those and many others revolutionized music and radio and opened the way for the 60s -- the Beatles, the Stones, Dylan, the super groups and on. Lots of great music has been done since, but those 15 years gave us the classic hits that defined Rock and Roll. Like the 57 Chevy, you can wait around and hope, but you won't see the likes of this again.
