The "Oh, wow!" hits of
the 50's and 60's (and, eh, a few 70's):
The music you forgot that you remember!
Turn off the waffle iron, get the cat out of the way, and start the music.
Then "dance like no one is watching"!

So easy, so good. So, enjoy!



A field guide to the New MKR

There are three kinds of playlists at the link:

1. "Kitchen tested"--these are the tunes you loved on Live 365. (The food photos are new: 8tracks requires graphics, and we're "
Kitchen Radio," after all.)

2. The "elevators"--easy listening with style, perfect background for studying, for relaxing, for.... Hey, it's 5:00 somewhere!

3. Theme-based lists--featuring selected songwriters, artists, concepts. (Earth Day, for example, or check out the one that's all songs about coffee.)



More notes: Many—probably most— of the songs we play were hits (i.e., charted in Billboard Magazine) in the 50’s and 60’s and early 70'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.
  • We have a weakness for tunes from The Great American Songbook. Hits or not, they're part of our heritage.
  • Once in a while we've even added something from the 80's. But we felt really guilty about it.

answer questions about the new format.
It's not exactly "radio," but in some ways it's better.
