OSHAWA ROCKS FOR NOVEMBER 18, 2019

Hi once again and welcome. This archive contains all country music for you. I have decided to play all country music each Monday night starting at 8pm eastern time and from 9 pm I’ll play music from the 50’s and 60’s as I have been doing in the past. Write in to request a song, suggest a different format  or to just say ‘hi’. See you next Monday night starting at 7pm!  Oh, and be sure to let your friends know. Thanks.

ROCK AND ROMANCE FOR NOVEMBER 11, 2019

Hello once again and welcome to this latest archive of some of my favourite songs from the 50’s and 60’s.  Each Monday night beginning at 8pm eastern is when I am live with a varied selection of music for you. Approximately the same number of people listen in each week and I am trying to figure out what kind of music they like. I see people leave and then either the same ones come back or different people log in to listen.But no one has written in to give me any idea so next Monday night I am going to find out if it is old country songs that you like. I may intersperse rock and roll music along with the country songs. Who knows? Maybe I will be able to keep most people interested so that they will not leave. See you all next Monday night for something completely different. Len.  ...

ROCK AND ROMANCE FOR NOVEMBER 4, 2019

Hi once again and welcome to this latest archive of most of my favourite music from the 50’s and 60’s. I am starting with an apology for going a bit crazy Monday night.  I was tired before I started and as I watched the number of listeners dwindle I thought that I might shut the broadcast down early but then a very curious thing happened. More and more people clicked on really late in the broadcast. There were as many listeners as when I first started at around 8pm. Also, I ask but no one writes to me! I don’t know what you want in terms of upbeat songs or slower ones. Never any requests. I want to know where you are listening from. Also, I still have the CD for anyone who requests it. It called ‘The Look Of Love’ by Diana Krall. Anyway I will return with more great 50’s and 60’s music next Monday night at the same time. If you would like me to do a short 30 second commercial free of charge to advertise your business for example, just ask. Write to oshawarocks@hotmail.com. Check me out on Facebook at Len Jeffrey. I must thank the people at RockRadioScrapbook.ca and .com for the CHUM 1050 samples and information. See you on Monday. Len Jeffrey.  ...

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 FOR OCTOBER 28, 2019

Hi and welcome to this ‘episode’ of Rock and Romance. Please enjoy the music that I presented. The music of the 50’s and 60’s.  I only ask that you tell your friends about this weekly live broadcast from my home town-Oshawa,Ontario. I must thank the people at RockRadioscrapbook.ca for the sound clips that I used from CHUM 1050 Toronto radio. My favourite station when I was growing up. Write to me [oshawarocks@hotmail.com] for any requests or just to tell me what you think about Oshawa Rocks and remember that I would be happy to mention your business or any endevour of yours. Check out my Facebook page-LenJeffrey.              See you next Monday night. Enjoy! Len.  ...

ROCK AND ROMANCE FOR OCTOBER 21, 2019

Hi and welcome once again to this offering of my favourite songs of the 50’s and 60’s. I had my headphones on for the entire two hours and twelve minutes program and tapping my toes along with the music. I truly believe that it’s the best music. It’s the music I grew up with. That was when the performers had genuine talent. No electronics back then to enhance their voices to keep them ‘in tune’. But you knew all that. Sit back and enjoy the songs and a few of the sound bytes that I ‘threw in’. Please let your friends know about this program each Monday night. That’s all I ask. The rock songs begin right after the tale end of a country song. Oh, that’s right. You may not know that I play an all-country music program beginning at 7:30 pm each Monday before the rock music. Enjoy! Len.  ...

ROCK AND ROMANCE PLUS FOR OCTOBER 14, 2019

Hello once again and welcome to you if you have not been here before. My name is Len and I operate a pretend ‘radio station’ where I play my favourite music from the 50’s and up. Yes, as you can tell from the word ‘favourite’ I am Canadian. As a matter of fact I ‘broadcast’ live each Monday night from Oshawa, Ontario which is just 40 minutes from Toronto. Anyway, please enjoy my humble offering of music and unintentional errors. I only ask that you let as many people know about what I am doing as possible. And before I forget, if you would like me to promote your business by doing a 30 second commercial here, just send me the information. Is a special occasion coming up for someone you know? A birthday, for instance? I’l play a special song and mention that person’s name if you wish. All at no cost, of course.   ***There was about a 5-10 minute space of dead air at the beginning here, please be patient or jump ahead to the 10:58 mark below.  That’s when the country music really starts.   Thanks! Len.  ...

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....
