Sunday Oldies Jukebox Toys for Tots December 1Rockin' SantaHelp make December 25 special for a less fortunate area child with a gift this Christmas. In support of the Marine Corps Toys for Tots Campaign, the Sunday Oldies Jukebox will be collecting toys for needy children. Sunday, December 1, between the hours of 10:00am and 4:00pm, bring a new, unwrapped toy to our studios at 8585 State Route 14, Streetsboro. We're located at Door 6 at the southeast side of the building. Last year, we collected several large crates of toys, and we hope to do even better this year. But, we can't do it without your support and generosity. Details to follow.  And, as always, THANKS!

Requests and Dedications: What works; what doesn't... For 22 years, the Sunday Oldies Jukebox has been Akron's home of commercial-free doo-wop, rock, Motown, rockabilly, R&B, instrumentals, and cross-over hits from the 1950's, 1960's, and early 1970's (our "format"). We are listener supported, and we take very seriously our responsibility to serve the community at large that supports us.

We also broadcast one of the few remaining real-time, call-in Request shows. Despite there being tens of thousands of great Oldies fitting our format, we still get requests that are out of format, week-after-week repetitions, or attempts to "Stump the DJ." We know from unfavora\ble feedback that listeners notice. It's clear that, left to free-wheel, the Request show would degenerate into musical chaos, so we're spelling out what's fair game for requests and dedications:

  1. We welcome requests for well-known, as well as obscure, songs and artists that fit our format (that's a lot of songs). We may limit the play of songs that are requested week after week.
  2. We may occasionally play a song that falls outside the 50's, 60's, and early 70's because it has special or seasonal significance (e.g., Christmas).
  3. We won't play songs that we deem offensive or objectionable, legally or otherwise.

We believe these guidelines are necessary to keep the Request show true to the original Sunday Oldies Jukebox mission -- enjoyable by, and with the participation of, the widest range of listeners, not just a few. We are grateful for your understanding and welcome your continued support.

Video of the WeekHarry Chapin (1942-1981) performs "Taxi" live on the pilot episode of the TV show "Midnight Special" August 19, 1972.  The show was hosted by John Denver, and included appearances by Mama Cass, The Everly Brothers, The Isley Brothers, Linda Ronstadt, Argent, and Helen Reddy.

"Taxi" was written by Harry Chapin for his 1972 album "Heads & Tales," and debuted on NBC's Tonight Show in 1972. So many calls and telegrams were received by NBC demanding that Chapin return to the show that Johnny Carson brought Chapin back the next night for an encore (a first-ever event on the Tonight Show). Note the falsetto interlude is sung by Chapin's bass player, Big John Wallace.

Credited with being the most politically and socially active American performer of the 1970s, Chapin fought to end world hunger, and was a key participant in the creation of the Presidential Commission on World Hunger in 1977. In 1987, he was posthumously awarded the Congressional Gold Medal for his humanitarian work. 10/10/19
