Well, now. Daddy G has asked me, Phil Maq, to sit in for him on “The Malt Shop” today from 1PM-3PM EST!
I have decided to do something special thanks to Sally O’Mally Schroeder, who posted a WKNR Music Guide from October 24, 1966.
The station-which just had its anniversary on October 31, was very influential to anyone growing up in the Detroit area!
I personally used to have a sliding door where I taped the guides and referred to them as needed! It was also a snapshot of the current music scene featuring a cross section of musical styles.
I will countdown the whole list on today’s show, so join me to hear some favorites as well as several songs I don’t remember ever hearing!
It’s an interesting mix of Motown soul, garage, early psychedelic, retro nostalgia, folk rock, pop, and many other styles.
The WKNR list lives again today at “The Malt Shop!”
Ask a friend to listen, come along for the ride, and tune in to 89.3 FM (89.3 WHFR.FM) in the Dearborn-Detroit area, stream it anywhere in the world with this special Keener link : https://whfr.fm/streamer/ (Press the “Listen Live Now” button), or use RadioFM or TuneIn to stream it.
