September 27, 2017 06:00 AM PDT
Friends: Can you believe it? Almost the end of September! And here on the west coast, mostly summer like weather continues - sure, the odd day of rain, but for the most part, still very usable days.
Here is the weekly Rock and Talk show from Radio Action. Lots of good tunes on this program including a TOP 10 that features back to back BOBs - all Bob all the time! Yes, ten of the best tunes by the likes of Bob Moore, Bob Dylan, Bobby Bare, Bob Seger, and Bob Luman - to name a few.
James is here with Motown and More, Al with his two part Retrospective Commentary (20 and 40 of hour 1) and Michael at the top of hour 2 with Rock and Roll News.
In between, I play the music!
So, for a fast paced hour of a little chatter and a whole lot of platter, give us a click!

Friends: I had a little fun on this program. Do you know what an "ear worm" is? Well, and ear worm is a tune, or snippet of a tune that gets lodged in your ear, or in your brain, and you cannot get it out. You hum it, you sing it, you think about it, and often you cannot identify it as to name or artist.
Piero Umilani provides this week's ear worm. As soon as you hear it, you will think "MUPPETS" but this is the ORIGINAL.
And you will be humming it, singing it and thinking it for a while......
Yes, we do play other music too, and some of the tunes featured on this week's show might also cause an ear worm effect - depending on how you relate to them.
I had some fun recording this show - I hope you have fun listening.
Rock, Roll and Remember - Radio Action.
Cheers from the Action Den

Friends: Hello to all our Radio Action Fans and Listeners. Welcome to another RA week, kick-started by our Rock, Roll and Remember Program.
Let's get things rolling with Carly Simon, Trooper, Billy Paul, Aerosmith, the O'jays and Led Zepplin - just to name a few of the artists who appear on this week's show.
Don Suhan of WFSN and WXED sent a long a great oldie by the Tokens, and we play it later in the first hour of the show. Listen for it - and thanks Don for not only the request, but the track as well.
Radio Action continues to provide music to not only an appreciative internet audience, but to several radio stations as well. Welcome listeners to WFSN, WXED, WLDJ, WRSG and WELT. Thanks for tuning us in, on the radio on on the internet.
Now, give us a click and lets all Rock, Roll and Remember together.
Don and Al for Radio Action.....
Three times each week, Big Daddy Donald Roberts and the swinging men from the Action Den, bring you GOLDEN OLDIES from the studios of Radio Action. Listen to some of the greatest music of all time with emphasis on the '60's and '70's.
During the Radio Action ROCK AND TALK program, Al Murphy visits on the 20's with RETROSPECTIVE - a 20/20 look back on issues of interest to Al, and hopefully you as well. Al also returns later in the program with SPORT DE JOUR - a look at everything "sport."
Michael Godin from Treasure Island Oldies stops by at the top of the hour with ROCK AND ROLL NEWS and James Murphy, all the way from Cambridge England, provides listeners with spectacular "choons" during his MISSING IN ACTION segment heard at the 25 minute mark of the first hour of the show.
Yours truly, Big Daddy fills in all the gaps with light banter and awesome music.
Radio Action - ROCK, ROLL AND REMEMBER is a program of mostly music that will keep you rocking and rolling - a fast paced two hours of some of the greatest hits of all time.
And Radio Action - SOUND TRACK OF THE SIXTIES looks at that incredible decade of music, featuring all the hits of our youth in a fast moving hour (plus) of survey countdowns. It is a blast!
Big Daddy Donald Roberts: I am a retired print plant manager, who has a love of music and radio - in 1967 I went to broadcasting school, and earned my diploma. Then real life kicked in, and I found a job at a printing company, where I stayed for the next 38 years. I have always had some kind of home studio, and it is there where donspodradio was born. Now I can do what I love, and do it for people who also love the music and listen to the program each week. Al Murphy is also a retiree from the same company - I was in Manufacturing and he in Human Resources! Al resides in Fergus, Ontario, which is a little bit west of Toronto - I on the other hand, live in Coquitlam, British Columbia, a bedroom community of Vancouver. When I started the donspodradio websites back in February, 2006, Al was the very first visitor - it wasn't long before he had recorded some promos for the station, and as they say, the rest is history. Now, every week Al drops by on the 20's with RETROSPECTIVE - his look back at issues of interest to him, and I hope, you as well. Every once in a while, Al either co-hosts a program, or takes over entirely - and his love of the music and information of the times shows through! It takes a bit of engineering to stretch the string tight between the two tin can microphones that link our studios, but it is well worth the effort as I am sure you will agree. So, please join us weekly, as we rock to the sounds of GREAT OLDIES - 5 hours each week right here! Over 8 years in podcasting, and still going strong! We hope you enjoy the weekly program and will take the time to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or through this service provider. Rock on. The Real Big Daddy, Donald Roberts, and the Little Irishman, Al Murphy.
