THIS MONTH WE’RE SPOTLIGHTING MUSIC ARTISTS who were born during August, such as Bobby Hatfield (born Aug. 10, 1940, died 2003) of the Righteous Brothers (seen on the left above with Bill Medley, the other half of the Righteous Bros). We’re doing that by playing August Born Birthday Stars’ hit songs from the 1950s, 60s, 70s, 80s, 1990s, and the 2000s, more often than we normally do. If the singers and musicians were born in August, we honor them and celebrate their contributions to the music we all enjoy by playing their best hits more often throughout this entire month.
STARS BORN IN AUGUST INCLUDE: WHITNEY HOUSTON; RONNIE SPECTOR of The Ronettes; ISAAC HAYES; DINAH WASHINGTON; CONNIE STEVENS; TOMMY SANDS; VALARIE SIMPSON of Ashford and Simpson; SHANIA TWAIN; LEANN RIMES; RICK SPRINGFIELD; JUNIOR WALKER of Junior Walker and the AllStars; JOE JACKSON; DON HO; DAVID CROSBY of Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young; STEVE MARTIN; EYDIE GORME; MADONNA; BELINDA CARLISLE of The Go-Gos and solo artist; JACKIE de SHANNON; REGIS PHILBIN; BILLY RAY CYRUS; DARYL DRAGON of Captain and Tennille; MICHAEL JACKSON; VAN MORRISON; ROBERT CRAY; TIM BACHMAN of Bachman-Turner Overdrive; RICK COONCE of The Grass Roots;

GREATGOLD is GreatGold.fm, ClassicHitOldies.com, GreatGoldHits.com and GreatGoldMusic.com. No matter which you choose, you'll always get GreatGold. We play Classic Hits from the 1950s, 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s and the best of the 2000s. Sometimes you'll hear a song in the Rock category, or Pop, Blues, Motown, Disco, Soul, Country Crossover, Soft Rock, male and female singers, boy bands, girl bands, and once in awhile you may hear an outstanding independent artist.
The GreatGold Classic Hits Mix consists of, generally, Top 40 hits from the past, and, occasionally, songs that should have been. We play the Best of More Than 60+ years of The Greatest Music from Life's Soundtrack. The finest of the last half of the 20th Century, mixed in with gems from the 21st Century. No matter which Genre the Songs first fell into, or, which type of radio station first played them, it's a tune we call GREATGOLD, and, part of the History of Rock and Roll.
