Top O' The Morning
rdvamclassics@gmail.com

Why would anyone be interested in those old things? --Jelly Roll Morton

Well, we're interested in "those old things," and maybe you are too. Daytimes, WRDV recalls our roots in those great Jazz and Swing tunes that immortalize the American Twentieth Century. Here's an invitation to pour another cup of coffee (and have another piece of pie?). Sit back and cruise the forenoon with our "Top O' the Morning" show. We'll feature the original hits of the '30s and '40s as well as a few classics from the late '20s or early 50s for fun. Take our "Just One Little Half Hour" Test. Lock your dial on "Top O' the Morning" for 30 minutes any Monday between 8 and Noon and see if our show doesn't live up to its name. We think you'll be interested--maybe even hooked.

12pm - 3pm

Mid-Afternoon Memories

The music that you hear played on Mid-Afternoon Memories is essentially a tribute to all of the great musicians, vocalists, composers and arrangers who combined their talents to bring us some of the most popular and enduring music that you could wish to hear. Which of us hasn't heard these renditions before? But the arrangements are so melodic and pleasing to listen to and the lyrics so meaningful, that we instantly embrace the mood that they project, whether it be joyful, sorrowful or romantic, and we eagerly anticipate the next chorus. How wonderful it is to be able to hear this vast repertoire of big band music continuing through our lifetime. For more, stay tuned to WRDV-FM.

Ted Taylor
The Good Morning Show

Ted Taylor - "Your Friend With Pleasure" - returns to radio after a 20-year hiatus, playing the memorable music of the big band and swing era. A deejay for well over two decades he was a part of the big band/swing format on several Philadelphia-area stations (WIBF FM, WBUX, WNPV). Ted broke in to radio with WIFI FM (92.5 FM) in Philadelphia in 1965 as a sportscaster, talk show host and rock jock. He has met and emceed the performances of many of the legendary figures of the big band era when they appeared locally - Stan Kenton, Lionel Hampton, Lee Castle, Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Maynard Ferguson, Buddy Rich, Gene Krupa, Charley Ventura, Errol Garner, the Buddy DeFranco Glenn Miller Band, Chris Connor and many more. "It's an era when music said something to us all, and it's a privilege to be able to share those great sounds once again with my listeners."

Big Band Serenade...
& More

Big Band Serenade...& More is your home for Big Band Musical memories with the best of the Big Bands and their great ballads and swing tunes from the 30's, 40's and 50's. Join me each Tuesday at High Noon for the big band classics as well as the great music of the male and female vocalists, the vocal groups and the top tunes of the early 50's. I explore the world of Big Bands with their beginnings and their endings and add a little background trivia of the musical artists for your enjoyment. Bringing back memories for you is my goal. I occasionally include a theme for the show as in a Latin American program or seasonal event. Your requests and suggestions are always welcome at RDV-FM.

3pm - 6:30pm

Jack McAvoy
Swing's the Thing

If it's Tuesday, it must be the Swing's the Thing show with me, your host Jack McAvoy. I hope you'll join me each Tuesday afternoon from 3 to 6 for your kind of music -- you know, music that puts a smile on your face and makes you glad you found this show and this great radio station. I'll play the best sounds from the 30's, 40's, and 50's as well as reach back to the 20's for the tastiest roots of Swing. You can have it all on Swing's the Thing!
In addition to the best in Big Band and Swing, along with the great vocalists, you'll be treated to a couple of special features. During the 4 o'clock hour I'll feature a different artist each week for songs and a mini bio. Then just after 5 o'clock, it's "World War 2 for 3." You get three World War 2 songs -- all connected by that week's theme. Who knows what it will be -- reveille? military life? rationing? the girl back home? military humor? Whatever the topic, you won't want to miss it!
As if that's not enough, stay tuned right after Swing's the Thing for 30 minutes of pure solid gold. That's right -- I shift gears from Swing to Rock for the best in Top 40 tunes from the 50's and 60's. Think of it as dessert after the main course of Swing's the Thing!
Make the Swing's the Thing show a must stop each Tuesday. I'm betting you'll be glad you did.

Rhythm Breakdown 2

Rhythm Breakdown 2 looks for the links in the music of the 40's 50's, 60's and beyond. The show covers R&B, Blues and Rhythm, Jump Blues, Jump Jazz, Blues, Hep Vocal Harmonies, and a few surprises thrown in to keep me entertained and you on your toes. Every other week two specialty mini-shows, Soulville and Rockabilly Kin, are showcased. These two are designed to fill in the gaps that Rhythm Breakdown 2 cannot fit in easily. It's sharkskin sharp music. Finally, as time and circumstances allow, I have live in-studio musical guests to play for you and me. It's truly a different approach to the roots of American music.

Tim Kelly's Jam Session

If you're down with swing, you can hear the big bands, the vocalists, small groups, novelty bands as well as hot dance from the 20s and traditional jazz. Your favorites in triple play at the top of each hour--Tommy Dorsey, Benny Goodman, Glenn Miller and Artie Shaw. It's more music and less chatter on the Jam Session.

12pm - 3pm

Dave Zeft
Passport to the Past

My show, "Passport to the Past," can be heard every Thursday from Noon to 3pm. Please join me! I play music from the 30's, 40's & 50's...the big and small bands, the vocalists and the singing groups from that era. I will also throw in some Traditional Jazz as well. The music is bound to bring back memories from an era long gone but not forgotten.

3pm - 6 pm

Dale TempleDale Temple
Time Was

"Time Was" is all about "remembering a time that was, but never forgotten". My show features big band swing from the 30's through the 50's; the known bands and vocalists along with the little known bands and vocalists. I also introduce THE GREAT BRITISH DANCE BANDS from the 30's, 40's and 50's with such orchestras as Ray Noble, Ambrose, Geraldo, Ted Heath and Charlie Kunz, along with the vocalists: Al Bowlly, Vera Lynn and Anne Shelton, to name a few. I also treat my listeners to a generous offering of Latin American dance music from such artists as Xavier Cugat, Edmundo Ros, Roberto Inglez and Carmen Cavallaro. An integral part of the show are the male, female and group vocalists that evolved after the big band era; I take the RDV listener up through the late 50's and maybe the very early 60's, with the likes of Dean Martin, Joni James, The Four Aces, The Crew Cuts....the list goes on!

6pm - 9pm

Rich LagermanRich Lagerman
Original Bandbox

I feature rare and unusual recordings of the 20s, 30s and 40s by bands large and small, famous and forgotten, along with vocals and novelty tunes of the era. I present Jazz, Popular Music and Hot Dance recordings selected from a very large collection amassed over the last fifty years.

The Bandbox also plays recordings that are one of a kind.test pressings and acetate recordings never intended for commercial release; alternate takes of issued recordings where a sideman plays a solo differently from the issued version; Transcriptions originally meant to be played by commercial stations and never available for sale to the general public; Personal or vanity records sold by the bands themselves at their public appearances; West Coast sides that were local releases--(local or territorial bands recorded only sporadically and fitfully and many legendary bands never entered a recording studio).

I try to add a related fact or anecdote connected with the recordings, adding depth and historical importance. I also point out well-played solos and identify future bandleaders as they honed their style. Each artist has his own style similar to a fingerprint and learning to identify them and their playing at different stages of their development brings added enjoyment.

I also play English, European and Australian recordings, as well as sides cut in this country for export abroad. These are identical to U.S. Issues, but have no vocals. Instead, an extended solo takes its place. So for the best and most unusual recordings from the Twenties through the late Forties, join me on the Original Bandbox Thursdays at 6 PM!

Bill Hower's Music Box

Beautiful Music once dominated the radio landscape and was the number one music format on FM radio for years. I bring back this music. Recordings from Percy Faith, Andre Kostelanetz, Mantovani, The 101 Strings, The Living Strings, Billy Vaughn, Lawrence Welk and the list goes on and on. There are maybe 25 Beautiful Music/Easy listening stations left in the country today, but RDV listeners are still able to hear instrumental renditions of the pop hits of the day (from that era) as well as standards for a relaxing end to a busy week in this area...only on Bill Hower's Music Box.

So if you want to be a part of the Night Owl Party, tune me in and I'll turn you on to some of the greatest sounds of all time. Because I just can't lose with the music I choose.
