MONDAY NIGHT’S UPCOMING LIVE MUSIC PROGRAM

Hi. This Monday night [less than 24 hours away] promises to be different. I will be combining old country music along with the music of the 50’s and 60’s. What do you think? Different maybe? Anyway, be sure to let your friends know about the music program starting at 8pm eastern time as usual on www.oshawarocks.com! Thanks....

Get ready for Rock and Romance for November 4, 2019 coming up!

It will officially begin at 8pm eastern time Monday night. But I must ask you to stop right now and let your friends know about it. It seems that each week I have the same number of listeners and I only ask that it increases even by one listener every week. That’s all. I am not asking you for monetary donations, just your help in letting others know about this website. [of course, donations would really help me out too!] I really look forward to Mondays. I know that it’s hard to believe. Most people really hate Mondays but I don’t. I end up hearing music that I haven’t heard before and it’s because I have recently acquired the songs. Thousands of them! I click on a song and never really know what it will be. So get ready to possibly hear a song or two that you haven’t heard before or in a very long time. And what about those radio jingles that I play you might ask? Growing up in Toronto I listened to CHUM 1050 radio and I loved it. I loved the music and the contests and the corny jokes of the announcers. Everyone had their favourite announcer. Mine was Jay Nelson. So make sure to listen in and let your internet friends know about the guy who has an internet radio station and plays the promos of a now long gone radio station. It may be weird but the music is great! Len Jeffrey. [this Monday night I will be giving away a CD of Diana Krall’s...

Rock and Romance- My Pretend Radio Station!

Hi and welcome to my make-believe ‘radio station’. I have always wished that I was a radio announcer. It did not work out for me but this is as close as I can get to working at a real radio station. I am having fun with this site because I am able to play all of my favourite songs. Plus there are so many new ones from the past that I have never heard before. I have always wished that the radio stations would play other songs by my favourite artists but, of course, the stations just played what was popular at the time. I wanted to hear ‘side two’ of the records. Anyway, here I am presenting music each Monday night and this web site is becoming more and more popular because people just like you must be letting their friends know. So what I present each Monday night starting at 8pm eastern is music from the 50’s and up.  I also started playing all country music beginning at 7:30 until 8pm Monday nights. I hope to expand on the country music time by a half hour too. The country music program has proven to be quite popular. If you have a request for any song-just write to me at oshawarocks.com. Also, I am always looking for other things to put up here on Oshawa Rocks. If you have an idea of something that I can add here, like for instance, a friend of yours is a musician or singer and has mp3 files to send in to me, just write to let me know. Anyone can also...

ROCK AND ROMANCE FOR SEPTEMBER 30, 2019

I am very sorry to tell you that today’s archive cannot be put up because of technical problems that I was having all through the show. This will be corrected by next Monday night. Please remember to check this web site out next Monday beginning at 7:30 for country music and at 8:pm for music of the 50’s and 60’s as usual. That’s next Monday October 7.  There will be more sound bites [bytes?] from my favourite radio station when I was growing up in the late 50’s and 60’s, 1050 CHUM am radio. Thanks to  my friends at rockradioscrapbook.ca and rockradioscrapbook.com. Pleasecheck them out....
