This classic Dick Clark vinyl radio program from August, 1988 features the “best music ever” and that description is damn near right. This 4 hour spectacular features a spotlight on my favorite band, PAUL REVERE & THE RAIDERS, including interviews with Paul Revere and singer Mark Lindsay. Dick Clark was responsible for making the Raiders stars by signing them up to his “Where The Action Is” TV show and they reminisce together and play all the great RAIDERS hits. You will also hear music and interviews with ELTON JOHN, BEE GEES, DONOVAN, CHUCK BERRY, THE TEMPTATIONS, BOBBY RYDELL (with the original version of “Kissin’ Time,” later covered by KISS) and many more from the 50’s to the 70’s.
Plus, there are great commercials and jingles throughout including a few different J.C. Penney spots that I would bet hard-earned money that it’s Mark Lindsay himself, singing and doing the voiceover (first one is 7 minutes into Side 2 on Hour 1). Lindsay was very successful as a radio jingle singer after his Raider career and these examples are the latest that I’ve found for my vinyl collection. Also, The Rascals (or at least Felix Cavaliere) do “Good Lovin’” for Dr. Pepper and James Ingram for Maxwell House!
