PLUS Extra Plays to New Rock Hall of Fame Inductees!
THE TRADITIONAL WISDOM is that April Showers bring May Flowers, which, in turn, brings May Flowers. This April brings more than April Showers, it brings Special Attention to April born singers and to the bands with members born in April. April also brings the annual ceremony to honor the latest inductees to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum, Cleveland, Ohio, USA, and our tribute to the latest inductees by playing their songs often all month long.
The April 8, 2016, 31st Annual Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony honors this year’s Inductees: Cheap Trick, Chicago, Deep Purple, N.W.A and Steve Miller, as well as Ahmet Ertegun Award for Lifetime Achievement Inductee Bert Berns. Special guests include The Black Keys, Rob Thomas, Lars Ulrich of Metallica, and others.
OUR SPECIAL ATTENTION TO THE APRIL BORN BIRTHDAY BUDDIES comes in the form of GreatGold.fm Internet Radio shining a spotlight on their contributions to the Soundtrack Of Our Lives by giving their songs Extra Plays in our mix of hits from the 1950s, 60s, 70s, 80s, 1990s, and the best of the 2000s.
