WRMN 1410 AM, ELGIN IL
RADIO SHOW: "CD SHOWCASE"


March 13 "CD SHOWCASE"


TIDBITS

It was good to be back "on the air", playing songs that most radio stations have "forgotten".... Right now, no more shows are planned, pending funds or sponorship(s)....

"Make-up" Show:
December 12, 2009, WRMN had issues with its online streaming; only people in the greater Elgin IL area were able to listen. Thus, WRMN allowed me to host the March 13 show. I pay WRMN to host these shows to play songs that bring back memories, even if the whole world has forgotten: http://www.chevyasylum.com/cort/payingtoplay.html

Emailed comments about the show:

Marilyn, California (ACHA) ... "Loving the music you're playing."

Mike, Ohio (Rt 66) ... "I'm listening right now and loving all these old songs. Great to hear you on the air."

Laurel, Oklahoma (Afton Station, Rt 66) ... "I'm not sure why I never listened to this before. You're a GREAT DJ!"

Dennis (taught by my grandfather, Virgil), Oklahoma (ChevyTalk.org) ... "Great to hear you on the air again...."

Marc, Pennsylvania (WNJR Sponsorship Manager) ... "Sounds amazing!"

Bob, South Carolina (VR) ... "I love the way you're playing songs from way back that were not quite hits but bring back pleasant memories nonetheless! Your show rocks, Cort!"

Chris, New Jersey ... "Great songs, Cort!"

Kathryn, AUSTRALIA (Rt 66) ... "I do hope you get the show back on air soon - I really enjoyed today ... heard some stuff I'd not heard in ages and some American Country I'd not heard before."
