La Vellonera: April 12, 2018

La Vellonera, a translation for "The Jukebox" used in many Latin-American countries, brings listeners a diverse selection from varied Latin genres, countries, and artists.

Ghost Town: April 13, 2018

Apr 13, 2018

Deep in the night

Airwaves are quiet
Robots run the show
But there is one place
Vampires show their face
"Ghost Towne Radio"
Modern composer, harsh tones, extreme metal, found sound, voices in a cave.

Original rock and roll lives on KRVS. While searching for records to play on "Big Band Swings", I've also picked up some interesting 1950s tunes---and just as BBS has become BBS and other things, Old Gold starts out as a big mix of musical genres, with an emphasis on rock, roll, rhythm, and my favorite, novelty!
