Well, those are good questions, especially if you have never known of them. Radio Shows are syndicated productions by one of several large and small distributors who supply broadcast product to radio stations normally during weekends when the usual air personalities have a break. Many air on Saturday or Sunday evenings or during overnight segments. They often feature some of the best known voices for their genre from across the country thus the Dick Clark's and Casey Kasem's and Rick Dees and Dick Bartley and so many others. People collect them for various reasons. Some just collect the series because they like it and want them all. Some collect their favorite artists or genre of music. Rather than an album by the artist or a compilation bought at Wal Mart or downloaded through iTunes or wherever, they have a unique presentation of their favorite artist or music not available anywhere else and always with dj presentations which were very entertaining. Some collect interviews with their favorite artists as most shows had interview segments. Believe it or not, some collect commercials especially old car commercials but certainly not limited to only those. AND, these shows are in limited quantity. They were printed just for syndicated stations in the United States and were to be destroyed after broadcast and not sold. Many have just a few still in circulation. Some of the more popular shows may have as many as a few hundred of each week's show that survived but think about it. A few hundred for some 200 million Americans and millions of overseas collectors who look for unique presentations of their favorite artists or form of music is about as rare as rare can be. AND they are increasingly hard to find. They were first distributed on reel to reel tape if the show goes back that far into the 60's, then later on lp, later on CD and even later (after 2000 for most shows) on CDR. Now they are not available at all to collectors since they are distributed by digital download much like you get your music from iTunes. These shows become rarer and rarer every day because the people who buy them hold on to them and the people who sell them, like me, are running out of them. My best contact for these shows is running very low and when he is gone I will be at the mercy of finding a good deal here and there but never from a regular source. The shows that you get now and hold on to will never decrease in value and only increase. Even during the recession which is hopefully ending, the value of shows did not diminish much. The number bought diminished because people were afraid to spend their money and who blames them. But the prices did not decrease much and again are on the increase. I have prided myself since the start to provide the best and fairest cost with a no holds barred guarantee that you will be happy or I refund your money. I sell them for near what I bought them for. I give volume discounts and discount postage always. As the postal service increases their rates, my shipping rates over the years has decreased. And, I have one of the biggest radio show libraries in the world consisting of many thousands of shows, so many that I don't even know all that I have and am sometimes amazed when I go to look for one show and find another that I did not realize I had. Finally, it is Americana at its best. Whether the show be from the 60's or 2000's, rock, countdown, oldies, country, classical, religious, jazz or big band, it is unique and home grown. And you just can't find them anywhere. Even record stores that still exist will rarely have any. Radio shows are wonderful representations of the real golden age of radio at least music wise. And every one you buy is an original, not a copy, not a remake - all are limited editions in the hundreds at most and most much less. Once you get hooked, like me, it is a love affair for life!

Picture yourself back in the late 50's or 60's, even the 70's. You were glued to your transistor radio listening to the top 40 presented by your local radio station. You had that radio glued to your ear or connected with the little earphone jack that immediately broke. Your local dj was great. He knew the music. He had the gift of talking which rarely occurs anymore. You loved the presentation of the music as much as the sounds. You liked the station jingles. And on weekends when the local dj's had off, you listened to either taped shows they did during the week to be played on the weekend or a syndicated radio show featuring one of the greats. It was the golden age of rock. Music was king and the dj's were just as popular. You can relive those days whether you grew up then or just wish you had on only a handful of oldies shows. THIS IS ONE OF THEM. Most of you who know me, collectors who have dealt with me over the years, know that one of my favorite series of all time is this, THIS IS ONE OF THEM. Most of you who know me, collectors who have dealt with me over the years, know that one of my favorite series of all time is this, DICK CLARK'S ROCK ROLL AND REMEMBER. This is the Ferrari of Radio Shows, la creme de la creme. Dick Clark was one of the first Masters of Rock and Roll. His Dick Clark's American Bandstand set the pace for a multitude of acts to become famous His dance party format spread across the country and local versions were top rated in their markets. His tv show went on for over 30 years. At one time he had three shows on the ABC Network - his daily American Bandstand show, his Saturday night show and his summer Where The Action Is show. And it was not only television where he attracted millions in his audience. On radio it was the same story. He started in the syndication market in the late 70's with an hour show, each hour with a special focus. Then he started his countdown show (he had three different countdown shows in his career). Then he started Rock Roll and Remember which at first was hosted by legendary California dj Gene Weed since Dick was under contract to Mutual Broadcasting. He made guest appearances on the Rock Roll and Remember show and finally could be the sole host. This show is THE benchmark against which all oldies shows were compared. The format was never duplicated but was imitated everywhere. But there was only ONE Dick Clark. Only ONE person with the knowledge of the business and the artists that he had. What he packed in one weekly four hour show of 55 songs and up to 15 interviews was just plain over the top. It was a first class show from the packaging to the beauty of the CD's which were also silver backed for better fidelity, to the cue sheets, to the content of the shows themselves. Every show had a special feature, usually an artist or group, and there were at least eight interview segments with that artist during the show, two an hour. Each hour also contained one or two more interview segments with other artists featured. Each show had a theme year and many songs were played that were popular during that year, and there were several mini themes spread throughout the show one mini theme always featured another artist or group and all the songs in that segment were by that group along with an interview. AND, there were the other regular features such as the famous "Microphone on the Street" and the Rock Roll and Review" segment. This show was absolutely unbelievable and now you can own one or more for yourself. It came as pictured (it is a generic picture and not of this particular show but they all look the same) with four beautifully decorated LP's WITH their the cue sheets in very good condition. Dick Clark's Rock Roll and Remember was distributed by United Stations Radio Networks, later to become Unistar Radio Networks and then after a year or two United Stations Radio Networks again! Also for a brief period in between they were distributed by Westwood One Radio Networks for reasons that are beyond me since they were still packaged in the Unistar boxes and had the Unistar labels. I wish I knew the answer to that one! I even had communication with a Unistar guy and he didn't know. Oh well, trivia that will come to light some day and then I will share it with you. These shows are very rare because they are Dick Clark and for some reason are the least available of any show I have ever listed even though I presume that because it was a Dick Clark show there were more of them around than most other syndicated shows except maybe for Casey. Perhaps anyone who has one does not sell and keeps it out of circulation. After all, it IS Dick Clark, the originator of the American Bandstand format that endured for 40 years. Dick Clark IS the poster child of rock and roll . He IS Mr. Rock and Roll for my generation and beyond. Owning one of his shows is owning a piece of the rock of rock and roll. These shows are a bit more expensive than most but I have priced them right around what I paid for them. I am only wanting to get a reasonable price for them to help with my son's tuition and I selfishly try to keep the ones I love the most like the ones featuring artists of the 50's, my favorite era. This show is #149 and aired on DECEMBER 15, 1984. The featured artist was THE ONE AND ONLY EARTH, WIND & FIRE! There are EIGHT interviews with MAURICE WHITE & PHILLIP BAILEY and MANY other artists interspersed through the show. THIS SHOW COMES IN ITS RED ALBUM BOX AS SHOWN IN THE LISTING PICTURE HERE IS WHAT YOU GET!!!! First the songs from the featured artists which are contained in two segments in every hour along with an interview in each segment: That's The Way Sing A Song Saturday Night Serpentine Fire After The Love Has Gone Got To Get You Into My Life September Getaway Let's Groove Shining Star. Next are the other interviews by featured artists: Roy Orbison Elton John George Harrison Alan Clarke , Tommy Roe with a mini segment tribute including 2 of songs, and other artist Peaches & Herb. Then you will hear these other great songs from the early era of rock and roll presented by the master of rock, Dick Clark! Great Balls Of Fire- Jerry Lee Lewis Oh Pretty Woman- Roy Orbison Kansas City- Wilbert Harrison China Grove- The Doobie Bros Roundabout- Yes Please Please Me- The Beatles Join Together- The Who I Fought The Law- The Bobby Fuller Four Don't Hang Up- The Orlons Good Golly Miss Molly- Little Richard Honky Cat- Elton John Tom Dooley- The Kingston Trio If I Had A Hammer- Peter Paul & Mary Positively 4th Street- Bob Dylan Sheila- Tommy Roe Everybody- Tommy Roe Sailing- Christopher Cross Ride Captain Ride- Blues Image Bobby's Girl- Maurice Blane Than You (Falettinme Be Mice Elf Agin)- Sly & The Family Stone Thank You Girl- The Beatles Crystal Blue Persuasion- Tommy James & The Shondells Help Me- Joni Mitchell Sing- The Carpenters Close Your Eyes- Peaches & Herb Reunited- Peaches & Herb Watcha Gonna Do?- Pablo Cruise Return To Sender- Elvis Presley Mama Told Me (Not To Come)- Three Dog Night He Ain't Heavy He's My Brother- The Hollies Love You Inside Out- The Bee Gees Too Much- Elvis Presley How Deep Is Your Love- The Supremes The Ballard Of John And Yoko- The Beatles Wendy- The Beach Boys Telestar- The Tornadoes. These shows are priced a little higher than most oldies shows, but none of the other shows give you as much. And when you come down to it, you are paying only about $7 for each hour of music, interviews, features, and most of all, DICK CLARK. Go find a quality show like this anywhere else for less! We lost a national icon when he passed away earlier this year. You can own a part of the heritage that was Dick Clark when you own this special show, his masterpiece of music and presented as only Dick could. This is the original show sent for airing. It is NOT an unauthorized copy but the Real McCoy!!! I personally guarantee that every radio show that I sell is the original show sent to stations. Each show comes from my personal collection of thousands of radio shows of every genre. Stations could use the show anytime during that weekend and then were to return it to the network or destroy it. Of course, many dj's didn't want to destroy such great material (and maybe wanted to make a few bucks as well!) and that is how it ends up available to us all to enjoy. I don't know if I would describe this show as ultra rare , but I know that there are not too many floating around. In fact, when they are on eBay they tend to get bought quickly. You are truly buying a show that will only increase in value and I am selling them at a price very close to what I paid for it. It just doesn't get much better than that, music fans!!!! The show also comes with its original national commercials and none of the boring local commercials everyone hates! On this show you will hear ones like these: AT&T TRIDENT CREST MEDIQUELL AMTRAK FRANCO AMERICAN REMINGTON NESTLES and MORE! Some people buy these shows for their commercial collections but if you don't like them, just skip to the next track and they are gone! Remember that this and all the radio music shows that you see on eBay are not just about the music - the music can be found anywhere. It is the mixture of great music and great announcing that makes it so entertaining. As well, it is a piece of radio and music history. You just aren't going to find these shows around very much longer as everything becomes digitized and downloaded for play and shows are no longer sent out on CD's. (This has already occurred with most radio show series.) Think of what they will be worth in a few years! (IF you wanted to sell.) I am selling to share with other music lovers what I was able to get at a reasonable price. I am saving those shows I treasure the most and sharing the rest with you for very reasonable prices. Those I do not sell, I will just keep! It is a great show and would be a valuable addition to your collection. As always, for U.S. buyers, I charge only shipping on the first show you buy so the more you buy the more money you will save. For my international friends, I charge shipping for the first show bought and every other show in the same package ships for free. This is how I try to counter the terribly high shipping prices that recently took a huge hike. Good Luck and may God richly bless you always and forever.
