The "Oh, wow!" hits of
the 50's and 60's:
The music you forgot that you remember!
Turn off the waffle iron, get the cat out of the way, and click on the radio widget below.
Then "dance like no one is watching"!*
Um, wait a minute...
Sad to say, Mom's Kitchen Radio is off the air--perhaps forever; perhaps just for a while--after five and a half years of playing The Music You Forgot You Remember.
We made a lot of friends in that time. So, as we search for a new home for MKR, don't lose touch.
The email address is still good: email@example.com.
So what's playing now?

*Attributed to Satchel Paige (full quotation: "Work like you don’t need the money, love like you’ve never been hurt, and dance like no one is watching.")
A note: Many—probably most— of the songs we play were hits (i.e., charted in Billboard Magazine) in the 50’s and 60’s. But the main goal is to play what a typical middle-of-the-road station was playing during those two decades.
- Thus, occasionally 40’s material creeps onto our playlist because stations were still playing some of that.
- Similarly, there were songs that never made the charts that nevertheless got airtime—because middle-of-the-road stations were not as tied to the charts as the rock and rollers. We’re going with our memory on those.
- And, finally, tunes from the 70’s occasionally fall in because, well, we like them. (Once in a while we've even added something from the 80's. But we felt really guilty about it.)
