This relates to conversations/forum thread we have elsewhere.
Basicly this show spends over an hour playing songs from 44 to 55 years old. I enjoyed it. Great to hear some of the pop radio fun and funny tunes.
However, if in 1985 Dr. Demento dedicated half a show to playing tunes 44 to 55 years old, 1930 to 1941, I don't think the national stations or KMET would have been happy. While the audience liked the occasional trip back in time, I don't think the audience would have liked it either. (I would have dug it.) Is it from the Boomers holding onto their old music longer? I think part of it is the fidelity gap that separates 1930 from 1960, while 1960 records easily play on 2010 radio, while 1970 records are very much part of 2010 radio.

Would an earlier era have been The Bronze Age of novelty hit singles. Would 1967-1977 have come in to win the Silver?
