Sure, there are a lot of sites playing "the best of the 70s, 80s, and 90s"-they're all over the place, and on commercial terrestrial radio as well. Satellite radio has their individual "decades" channels as well. Thanks to the WWW, you can find pretty much any type of music, any time you want, and generally (with the exception of XM and Sirius satellite radio) for free. All you are responsible for is the cost of the bandwidth involved in getting the stream from the provider.
Sooner Classic Hits is a labor of love, owned and programmed by me, longtime broadcaster Fred Morton. I've been in the biz for over 45 years, have played pretty much every kind of music over my career, and like every other person on the planet, have my likes and dislikes.
The reason for starting SCH is simple-I play the "stuff you know and the stuff you don't, but wish you did". That includes "nuggets", remixes, alternate versions of the songs you've heard on the radio for years and years. And, I also leave out the tunes that have (in our opinion) been played to death, and that can be found anywhere else. An example is Bruce Springsteen's "Dancing In The Dark". One of his biggest hits, but when's the last time you heard the George Baker 12
remix (which was a huge hit in the clubs back in the mid-80s)? That's one of the nuggets I'm talking about.
You may like what SCH plays, and you may not. But that's the beauty of the WWW...there are so many choices, that it's impossible to not find something to like.
Check it out, and let me know what you think. You can send me comments and suggestions to firstname.lastname@example.org.Thanks for reading, and thanks for listening.
And, there will be more content coming soon on the site-just be patient!
