OLDIESLOON.COM RADIO WILL BE OFF UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE DUE TO A COMPUTER CRASH. THAT MACHINE WAS OUR MAIN ONE FOR BUSINESS. NOW THE ONE USED FOR STREAMING THE STATION HAS TO BE USED FOR THAT PURPOSE. PLEASE CHECK HERE DAILY FOR UPDATES.

Links and Things
Links to many other great radio sites with surveys from New York, Pittsburgh, Detroit, Miami, Boston, San Francisco and other cities, plus performers from the fifties and sixties like Bobby Vee and Freddy Cannon Also internet radio stations.

Most surveys appear in text form because of space limitations. Scanning in actual surveys takes up far more KB's and that would mean money to pay for more webspace. No profit has been made here.

Updates

Put the "at" (@) between "oldiesloon" and "yahoo", and a dot between that and "com" on the "To" line and send.

Apologies...

for the inconvenience and putting our email address in the way we have. It seems "mailto" links or even the addy itself are magnets for spammers' "bots". If I am away from my computer more than a day this site's box is stuffed to the gills with spam and legit emails can't get in.

We're now on Facebook. Just put this up on 8/11/10. Bill Danning on Facebook too.

Old counter crapped out. New counter crapped out. Even newer counter never crapped in.
