DURING AUGUST GreatGold.fm Internet Radio is Spotlighting Music Artists who were born during August, such as Bobby Hatfield (born Aug. 10, 1940, died 2003) of the Righteous Brothers [pic-left with the RB’s Bill Medley]. We’re doing that by playing August Born Birthday Stars’ hit songs from the 1950s, 60s, 70s, 80s, 1990s, 2000s and the 2010s, more often than normal.
THIS MONTH, we’re also returning to a tradition we started about ten years ago. We’re including a category of new and independent music artists, singers and songwriters with some outstanding works that deserve to be heard. We’re drawing songs from the new and independent category at least once an hour throughout the day this month to add some fresh spice to the GreatGold mix. Many of the tunes from this category are hand picked for qualities destined to possibly make them the Classic Hits of the future.
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, and many more.
