THIS TIME AROUND, the question on Quora was, “Why do I miss the oldies station on the radio and hate the stupid classic rock one when I like classic rock more?” My answer was brief and hopefully helpful (although a week later and there’s not a single upvote).
Diversity does add spice to anyone’s life and the type of diversity of music played on AM radio in the ’50s and ’60s (pop, rock & roll, rhythm & blues, soul, country, easy-listening, even comedic novelty records) has been gone since the ’70s.
Give this oldie a listen and then walk around the rest of the day singing to yourself, “Nothing can stop me now ’cause I’m the Duke of Earl!”
Not only will you smile all day, you’ll probably forget you’re addicted to your smartphone for a few hours . . .
