Oshawa Rocks Archive For August 10, 2020

Hi. First-off let me tell you about the contest for the Barrel Booster. It normally sells for $50.00. Its purpose is to allow low impedance dynamic microphones to operate using the phantom power from your mixer. It also boosts the level by at least 25db. So if you have a Shure SM7B microphone which  is known for its extremely low output signal, for example, this booster takes care of it beautifully and without added noise. For the contest you must write in to oshawarocks@hotmail.com requesting the chance to win a booster. That’s it! The draw takes place live next Monday night between 8 and 10 pm eastern time on this site. Another thing to remember is that all messages are to be sent to that same address-oshawarocks@hotmail.com, while I am ‘on the air’. Not through Facebook! Or phone in at 289-3125359. Enjoy the music of August 10, 2020 by clicking on to the title above. Len....

All-Johnny Mathis Music For August 8, 2020

OSHAWA ROCKS ARCHIVE FOR AUGUST3,2020

‘A Little Bit Of Country And A Little Bit of Rock And Roll’ That’s exactly right. A balance of great music every Monday night starting at 8pm eastern time. Please tell your friends about this different kind of web site. The operator [yours truly] is a bit odd I realize. I have always wanted to be on a real radio station and for about a year I ran a pirate station from the basement of my house. It didn’t reach very far, maybe a mile, but it was fun. As it so happened a newspaper reporter happened to tune in and phoned me to ask questions. [yes, I regularly gave out my home phone number] I knew that my pirating  days would soon be over. Soon after a photographer from the newspaper came over and took a couple of pictures of me wearing a mask. I thought that there would be a small story somewhere in the paper but I was on the front page! I guess it was a slow news day for them. And that was when I was ‘middle-aged’ as they reported. Now that I am even older I still get a kick out of playing music for people who listen in to hear it. That’s my story. Please enjoy the ‘show’ here on my website along with my mistakes, of course! Listening to this archive I notice a lot of distortion which I will correct next Monday. Len....
