Recently I was asked to be part of a panel that was commissioned to talk about 100 years of Philadelphia radio for Broadcast Pioneers of Philadelphia lunch. Since none of us on the panel were even born when radio started (my father wasn’t even born yet), we concentrated on a more recent past history. At one time radio was not only the number one source of entertainment in Philadelphia and elsewhere, but it was also the only real one that was in just about everyone’s home. The radio stations had a variety of music, sports and regular shows that featured…

The moment that I heard that Jim Seals of the famous duo of Seals & Crofts died at age 80, a flashback immediately transported me back to 1972 and an August night at WIBG the legendary radio station in Philadelphia.

Almost everyone will find fault with the list in some fashion, but let’s take a little closer look anyway. One might very well say, I wouldn’t not have picked these songs.

Over the years I have been fortunate to see hundreds of concerts.  I was able to do this because those of us in the business get passes to almost all the shows.-or at least we used to. Things have tightened up over the years with the changes in the record and concert business. Out of those many concerts I have tried to narrow it down to the top ten. It wasn’t easy.  There were many great concerts that I left out.  I also stayed away from the BIG concerts at places like the stadiums, where they were more like events…
