Let me take you back … to the dawn of Rock & Roll … through the eyes of your favorite Rock & Roll Radio DJs!
Blast from Your Past!(TM) began as a magazine article for a San Diego luxury publication about Rock & Roll memorabilia. Without effort looking back to the “good ol’ days” became a way of life for author, LinDee Rochelle, who published an ebook (April 2011), Blast from Your Past! Rock & Roll Radio DJs: the First Five Years 1954-1959 and is currently working on the 25-year print edition, Blast from Your Past! Rock & Roll Radio DJs who ROCKED Your World! 1954-1979, Vol. I.
The 1950s, ’60s & ’70s are bound together by a fantastic music phenomenon. Rock & Roll music explored its babyhood, discovered its power, and exploded into its own universe in these three amazing decades.
Who were the most influential people to stoke the Rock & Roll fire? Musicians, record moguls, ambitious advertisers, and Radio Disk Jockeys. Do you remember Cousin Brucie? Dr. Don Rose? How about Ron Riley, Joey Reynolds, or Shotgun Tom Kelly? They’re spinning platters and sharing behind-the-microphone patter along with 36 more DJs in Blast from Your Past!
We spun the radio dial as they stroked our musical senses, introduced us to our teen wings, and sent us soaring through life on a lyrical stairway to heaven. Nationwide, more than 40 DJs interviewed for the 25-year edition of Blast from Your Past!
Some DJs have soared on to Rock & Roll Heaven, some are still kicking around in radio or moved over to TV, and some are enjoying retirement. But all of them have stories … yep … there’s plenty of tales about Sex, Drugs, and Rock & Roll, baby!
