This Year’s Model 1956 – Right String, Wrong Yo-Yo

http://cygnusradio.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/03/This-Years-Model-1956.mp3From here, and for the rest of the 50s, there are plenty of all-time classics each week. This year, we had “I Walk the Line,” “Heartbreak Hotel,” “Twenty Flight Rock,” “Roll Over Beethoven,” and “Let The Good Times Roll” to name a few, and that’s ignoring the debut of Buddy Holly, a version of “Fever”

This Year’s Model 1955 – Rock ‘n’ Roll Call

http://cygnusradio.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/02/This-Years-Model-1955.mp3 So much much for 1955. Obviously, I’m biased, but I’ve been really delighted at the series so far, and how much great music I’ve been able to squeeze in. This is one of those weeks where I’ll listen to this as a playlist throughout the year. When Dave Brubeck and the Everly Brothers are

This Year’s Model 1954 – Too Hot to Handle

http://cygnusradio.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/02/This-Years-Model-1954-20150211.mp3 Harry Belafonte unlocks the spiritual lurking in the folk tune “John Henry” and Thelonious Monk unlocks something great in “Just A Gigolo.” A couple more timeless doo-wop records and 1954 takes shape as a fascinating, eclectic year. With Bill Haley’s “Rock Around the Clock,” we’re fast running out of reasons to call this the

This Year’s Model 1953 – Dim Lights, Thick Smoke (& Loud, Loud Music)

http://cygnusradio.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/02/This-Years-Model-1953.mp3 After a week’s delay for computer issues, 1953 did not disappoint. There were a ton of great tunes from relatively obscure stuff to all time classics like “Sh-Boom,” “Mess Around” and “Your Cheatin’ Heart.” Once again, we have a ton of bonus material in the archive that didn’t make the proper set. A sign

This Year’s Model 1952 – Rock The Joint

http://cygnusradio.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/This-Years-Model-1952-20150121.mp3 1952 is a coiling snake, stretching out to infinity. It’s not just a year. It’s endless. ***** See, what happened was that I tried a different method for pulling tracks, and ended up with several hours too much music. Unlike my normal method, I was then in a position of trying to cut perfectly

This Year’s Model 1951 – Step It Up and Go

http://cygnusradio.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/This-Years-Model-1951-20150114.mp3 1951 is the beginning of having way too much music I want to play, so for the archive this week I’ve extended the set by an additional 16 songs. So much great stuff that just didn’t fit due to time, so check it out at the link above! Full track listing including the bonus stuff is
