Friends: This is our opportunity to wish all our CANADIAN listeners a very HAPPY CANADA DAY - coming this Sunday!
And to our AMERICAN listeners a very happy INDEPENDENCE DAY on Wednesday next week.
This is the very last new Rock and Talk program until late August. Over the summer months of July and August, you will be treated to some of the best of Rock and Talk from the archives.
Yes, we will keep the music coming your way, but will be on a well earned vacation, traveling the country looking for the ultimate RV experience.
So, HAPPY TRAILS TO YOU - HAVE A HAPPY SUMMER AND THANKS FOR YOUR CONTINUED SUPPORT.
See you all "live" back here late August!
Don and Al for Radio Action.....RADIO ACTION ROCK, ROLL AND REMEMBER 160 - June 25 - 18

Friends: First and foremost, a huge HAPPY BIRTHDAY to our son Bryan who celebrates his 45th birthday today! I failed at math, calculating him to be a few years older - that is until I realized my mistake and voiced a correction.
For some inexplicable reason, I had his birth year in my mind as 1970 - but soon realized my mistake - he was born in 1973. So much for my ability to (a) remember dates, and (b) do the math!
This is the last RRR program until late August. My wife and I begin a two month vacation this time next week and while I am not sure where or when we will be traveling, suffice it to say, we will be doing something that does not involve me "doing radio!"
So, between the beginning of July and late August, you will be treated to the best of Rock, Roll and Remember. You know I would not leave without loading the site with programs.
Have a wonderful summer and thanks for staying with us.
Don (and Al) for Radio Action Rock, Roll and Remember.....
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.
