REQUEST LINE F.A.Q.
Can we use our screen names rather than personal names?
Of course, screen names are as part of the internet as "lol" and "omg." You can also use first names only as a request or dedication or full names. Your privacy and security is our priority and promise and we will never give out your e-mail or personal address to any other party.
Why haven't I heard my request song yet?
As broadcast music radio stations now do, we use song archival services. While their playlists are vast (over 16 million songs in all categories), sometimes a more obscure song is just not available. We also search for vinyl 45's borrowed from collectors if digital files do not exist, but even then some recordings have just gone into oblivion.

WHY DOO WOPS ARE CHERISHED BY TODAY'S ARTISTS
by Lou @ oldiestelevision.com
One day I was getting my mail from the lobby of my residence apartment building There was a young lad of about 14 listening to "Hot 97," a New York top 40 R&B station. An interview with Li'l Wayne brought up the subject of "The Teachers" and Doo Wop. The boy creased his eyes and asked the security guard, his dad, "What's Doo Wop?" The guard grinned and raised his chin towards me. I noted the son's "boom box" had a CD player. I told the boy I'd be right back. (I left him scratching his head).
I went up to my apartment and grabbed a Rhino boxed set of Doo Wop CDs and took the elevator back to the lobby. I asked the kid to check out the songs on the discs. He listened to a few including The Cadillacs' "Speedo," The Dubs' "Chapel Of Dreams" and several others. The boy looked at the Boom Box and exclaimed, "This is cool." Then he heard the Motown sound and asked, "when was this stuff made?" I looked at his father and we both smiled. "Before you were born," dad said. And the tween young man heard about fifties' Doo Wop in 2011 on a top 40 radio station.
I've heard Tupac Shakur and 50 cent pay tribute to "The Fathers Of R&B" and Beyonce played 50's r&b singer Etta James (born Jamesetta Hawkins) so convincingly in the movie "Cadillac Records," singing Etta's biggest hit, "At Last." The movie was loosely based on the history of Chicago's Chess Records, label operated by Leonard and Phil Chess, home to Muddy Waters, Chuck Berry, Bo Diddley Doo Wop groups The Moonglows and The Coronets (promoted by Alan Freed). The label flourished in the 50's and 60's, Two films about the company and it's artists were made forty years later in 2006, "Who Do You Love" and "Cadillac Records."
MusicRadio77 NY DJ 'Cousin' Bruce Morrow said in a television interview (when stations switched from oldies to newies and then switched back): "There will always be a market for oldies." The success of Doo Wop radio shows on local AMmers and the internet proves the point. The reaction to reunion shows on PBS and on stage is a phenomenon. DJ's The Golden Gup (Gup Gascione, TX), the late Kenneth "Hubcap" Carter (LA), Don K. Reid (NY), John Summers (TX), Bob O'Brien (WA), Burt Cohen (NH), Dr. Doo Wop (MD) is hardly an exhaustive list of broadcast radio personalities who have kept Doo Wop, street corner harmony, available to enormous audiences during the past twenty years through the present. Richard Nader Joe Nardone, Bob Belnak, Kae Williams, Walt Gollender, Larry Cutrone, Joe Bogoraf, Tony De Lauro are just a few of many Doo Wop concert (stage show) promoters who keep the music alive for sellout crowds. T.J. Lubinsky (whose grandfather, Herman Lubinski, owned the Savoy gospel and DeLite R&B labels with such artists as Kool & The Gang) keeps the harmony flowing nationwide when PBS rattles the tin cup. Public television knows the power of oldies. NY DJ Gus Gossert gave group harmony the endearing catch-name Doo Wop. Little did he know then how popular the name and the music would be, not only in resurgence, but in mainstay
Doo Wop will never die.That's why Oldies Television started radiodoowop.net in 2009. Not all visitors are grandparents, we have quite a large college age following also. They love the music. You love the music. We love the music.
