AT GREATGOLD WE RECOGNIZE AND CELEBRATE the many contributions to, and influences on, all popular music by Black Music Artists throughout musical history. We especially recognize those contributions during Black Music Month in June, as we do everyday in our playlist, which always includes the Best by Black Artists and singers as well as musicians from all other walks of life. Our recognition and appreciation continues 24/7/365 at GreatGold Classic Hits.
The music artists pictured on the Black Music Month album collage are just some of the many black singers and musicians in our Classic Hits Mix. To read about the importance of Black Music in the history of Popular Music and Rock and Roll, SEE MORE.

JUNE ALSO BRINGS THE SUMMER MONTHS and our tradition of playing Summer Songs at least once every hour throughout the Summer Time begins anew this month at GREATGOLD, the Home of GreatGoldHits and ClassicHitOldies. In addition, we’re spotlighting singers who were born in the month of June, and bands with members who were born in June, by giving their songs Extra Plays.
GREATGOLD is GreatGold Internet Radio, and GreatGold.fm, as well as ClassicHitOldies.com, also known as GreatGoldHits.com, and by 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, 2010s and beyond. Sometimes you'll hear a song in the Rock category, or Pop, Blues, Motown, Disco, Soul, Country-Pop, Country-Rock, Soft Rock, male and female singers, boy bands, girl bands, and once in awhile you may hear an outstanding independent or new artist with a Classic Hits Wannabee.
The GreatGold Classic Hits Mix consists of, generally, Top 40 hits from the past, the recent past, sometimes the distant past, and, occasionally, songs that should have been hits. 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.
