Golden Oldies programmes and stations continue to be one of the broadcasting successes of the 80s and 90s. Following the pattern of similar successful operations in the USA, Golden Oldies offer a popular radio alternative to the standard pop music and phone-in shows. Frequently set up using the old AM frequency of the parent station (which then continues to broadcast on FM only), they originally developed as an economically cheap form of broadcasting (certified classics, little DJ input), but today, with their increased audiences of high-spending 30-and 40-somethings, have attracted leading DJs and heavy commercial support. "Radio Gold"- is your Ace Records call sign to the radio world of Golden Oldies. A 30 track compilation drawn from the wide range of catalogues available to Ace Records, it is a veritable Oldies Radio programmer's delight. From Johnnie Allan's "Promised Land" through to Tommy McLain's "Sweet Dreams", these tracks are non-stop radio classics. On the uptempo rock and rolling side, there's "La Bamba" (which many will first remember from the recent hit movie), "Dizzy Miss Lizzy", "Rockin' Robin", "Good Golly Miss Molly", all by the original artists. Smooch to the dulcet tones of Aaron Neville (of the famed Neville Brothers) and "Tell It Like it Is", "Hushabye" by The Mystics, The Skyliners "Since I Don't Have You" and many many more. From the 50s to the 60s to the 70s these sides are Radio Gold Dust and, as an added bonus, there's the first CD outing for Paul Evans 1978 radio smash "Hello, This ls Joannie". With this release. Ace, the UK's leading specialist reissue label celebrates the music and pays tribute to these Golden Oldies programmes and stations who have kept these wonderful sounds fresh and valid through regular airplay. Radio Gold is an all-purpose compilation for radio, car, parties, and for just the sheer enjoyment of great classic pop music.
