Donovan salivates over the latest VINYL COBWEBS
whole idea for the VINYL COBWEBS show started
back when Premium Deluxe and I were working at
KTKK AM630 in Salt Lake City. There was only so
much music that we could incorporate into the
TALK radio format, so most of our collection of
obscure vinyl was left at that, STAYING OBSCURE.
After we left KTKK, we did a short stint at KCNR
AM1320 and then disappeared from the radio scene.
We strived to put a show on the airwaves that
strayed away from the same tired OLDIES that
everyone has either grown accustomed to, or grown
to hate. Haven't you all noticed how these OLDIES
stations cater to a certain crowd who only wants
to hear stuff that they have a memory attached to.
So that means they play only records that were
HITS. We tend to be the total opposite! What
VINYL COBWEBS represents is the music that wasn't
quite a NATIONWIDE smash, the records that were a
hit only in a regional market, or records that
were never a hit but deserves some attention
after all these years.
We presented this idea to our local OLDIES
stations to mixed feelings. They stated, "Our
sponsors want only the biggest hits, stuff people
remember!" Even our local community radio
station turned us away, for we tended at times to
be on the edge of being politically incorrect.
So here we are, being represented on the internet
to a BIGGER and I believe WIDER audience who
might just understand our brand of comic humor as
well as some great music that has definitely been
overlooked for way too long. We hope you enjoy!
Premium as a little rebel rouser
Deluxe, What's His Story?
Deluxe, co-host of Vinyl Cobwebs, has one of the
most definitive record collections this side of
the Mississippi! His love of vinyl collecting and
his witty approach to radio has lead to the
formation of VINYL COBWEBS.
When Premium isn't hosting the VINYL COBWEBS,
he's out earning a living driving in his meat
delivery van. Maybe you have consumed a hamburger
or chicken patty that Premium delivered to a
restaurant near you. He truly is the hard working
meat man that the whole world loves!
Mr. Deluxe is especially interested in your
feedback on the show, so feel free to e-mail,
with a special ATTENTION PREMIUM in the header.
Requests, questions and the like. He'd be pleased
as punch to respond in a fast and timely manner.
COBWEBS AIMS TO PLEASE!
COBWEBS with each broadcast brings you the very best in
esoteric obscureness! We represent many aspects of the
post war era: Doo Wop, Rhythm and Blues, Surf,
Rockabilly, Rock and Roll, Exotica and more! One of our
most appealing features is the fact that you never know
what will play next! It's truly a listening experience.
