“Seems Like Old Times” is a 1946 hit song recorded by Vaughn Monroe. It is also the title of a syndicated radio show produced and hosted by a friend of mine, Craig Orndorff. Each week for two hours, Craig counts down the hits from the same week in a given year. The shows encompass the years from the 1930s to the 1960s and also highlights performers and themes. In addition, you’ll hear headlines, commercials, and entertainment news from the featured year..
Craig, who also does play-by-play for the Woodstock River Bandits baseball team, is happy to take requests, and honored mine on his February 21st show when he featured Ella Mae Morse, a big band/rhythm and blues/rockabilly singer from the 1940s and ’50s.
I’m sure that many of my readers will enjoy listening to Seems Like Old Times. The show airs at 7:00 p.m. on Sundays here in Hagerstown on WJEJ AM1240. If the show is not on a radio station in your area, you can still listen by going to the show’s website. Click here and you’ll be taken to the home page. Go to the “Listen Now” tab, pick a program, and enjoy time traveling to a different era.
Thanks Austin, I listen to “Seems Like” all the time but didn’t know I could access archives that way. By the way, your right with your season picks through the first week. Hats off to you.
Thanks, Dick. Miami certainly isn’t living up to expectations so far, but we really won’t know this season’s trends until the first of June or so.
Interesting note about Ella Mae Morse: She was hired by Jimmy Dorsey at the age of 14, & at age 17, had the first gold record with Capitol Records. (Cow Cow Boogie). She was quite an attractive lady.
Don, she had a very interesting career and I love her voice. Here’s one of my favorite songs from her rockabilly period. https://youtu.be/cGuDWDIgrdQ
