I picked up the Pop Memories of the 60's recently, so I plan on getting more of that series worked in as well. Some of it is earlier 60's but thinking of more Roy Orbison, Elvis, Bobby Vinton, etc. as well as some Marty Robbins.  Sorry, love the song El Paso. Wink

Sorry, love the song El Paso. Wink
That one has a wide appeal.  Part of it is the American Western theme, part of it is the classic tale of taking chances for love, part of it is the Marty Robbins styling.  I like it.  My father (WWII generation) even liked it!

BTW - early 60s fits, in my mind.  For music purposes, I consider the "Vietnam Era" to be the American involvement period, 1961-1973.  The first operational units (as opposed to strictly "advisors") arrived in 1961.  The last departed in 1973.  --although the war itself did not end until the fall of Saigon in 1975.

UPDATE:  Okay, it pre-dated the period a bit. We'll go by when it won the Grammy!  LOL

Quote
"El Paso" is a country and western ballad written and originally recorded by Marty Robbins, and first released on Gunfighter Ballads and Trail Songs in September 1959. It was released as a single the following month, and became a major hit on both the country and pop music charts, reaching number one in both at the start of 1960. It won the Grammy Award for Best Country & Western Recording in 1961, and remains Robbins' best-known song. It is widely considered a genre classic for its gripping narrative, haunting harmonies by vocalists Bobby Sykes and Jim Glaser (of the Glaser Brothers) and the eloquent Spanish guitar accompaniment by Grady Martin that lends the recording a distinctive Tex-Mex feel.  [Wikipedia]

I plan on opening things a 'bit' on predated material, mostly from reading more that it was much like today, bigger songs from a few years prior didn't disappear and were still a mainstay.  It's hard since I wasn't around for that but I try to make sure it stays relevant. Smiley  I've always tried to work in a few things like that and I plan to try and expand it a bit but not to the point where it becomes a 60's station.  It will be determined on drops/likes/dislikes.  I'm also working on a playlist that I'd like to do for a few hours occasionally of 'country/western' influenced music from the era.  It may bomb but it'd be a good 2 hour list once a month like I try to work in w/the R&B list.  I have plans for doing maybe a weekly 2 hour list that alternates Country/R&B-Soul/Folk/Hard Rock mixed in but still working on how I'll handle the lists.  The lists are a monster because of the bumbers/speeches/movies.  If I didn't do those, it'd be easy but it wouldn't be Radio Vietnam. Smiley

We hit 516 tonight on Facebook page. Smiley  I had set a goal of 500 for 7/4, so that was nice to see.  Picked up 28 new fans today (WOW!), I just need to make sure they're all translating to listeners, I know, based on hours that it's been working.  So if we get even 1/4 of the fans to listen it's boosting hours and hopefully boosting VIPs.

With no  BIAS, RR, which you showed in your last message! lol  Is that OK with you?  I mean adding more 'memory' tracks from the earlier 60s to the list.  I know stuff like Tequila and a few others currently in the list weren't in the 65+ period but were you still hearing that music?  I'm only assuming that 'hits' didn't just disappear and reappear after the era. Smiley  I rely on you for that stuff, I assume you'd be bias on what you grew up on, much like I am...then I grew up in the (yuck) 80's of poor music, but as long as the tracks were still relevant, I want to start adding more of that music.  My music was Bad Company, Boston, Aerosmith, Journey, etc. but they were 70s hits when I grew up in the 80s and even today a lot of that still resonates today.  I have grown to love some of the 80s music but I know even things like U2 resonates well today and did through the 90s after The Joshua Tree.   So I just want to make sure early 60's tracks, like El Paso, were still relevant or heard In Country or in the states.

The concept of "oldies but goodies" in popular music (songs from a previous era replayed for "nostalgic" reasons) dates back quite a ways - probably to the beginning of broadcast radio.  In the 60s, songs from earlier eras would be played, even as great new music was being released during that very prolific decade.  This included new, tribute music done in the style of the earlier period - like the so-called "Doo Wop Revival" of the early 60s, celebrating the earlier doo wop styles of the 50s.  All-in-all, I don't see any problem in putting in a few of those "replays" from the late 50s, early 60s - especially since, as I view it, the Vietnam Era began in 1961.

That was my intent. I don't intend on making it a staple, much like most of the later music.  Just wanted feedback from you.  I'm working on a new list soon to be released, before the site.


Sorry been fighting a freakin' sinus infection the past week.  Thought I was moving past it yesterday but it reared it's ugly head today. lol  Taking heavy antibiotics so should be over soon, I hope.  I seem to get sick EVERY damn summer.  Good in the winter but summer kills me. heh

I just discovered that our Green Beret song is sung to the tune of Wabash Cannonball.  So why not go ahead and add Johnny Cash singing the Wabash Cannonball since you like Johnny Cash Nix?

Will do... Working from home the next week while I'm on call and hoping it's not too busy and I'll get new playlists done with PSAs and AFVN material.  I think you know that anything Johnny Cash that is suggested will make it, within reason!  Cool
