Best Thing to Happen to Springs Radio (since 1998)

"Vintage Voltage"
Friday afternoons from 1-3 p.m., 91.5 KRCC

When you think of "oldies," you usually think of Neil Diamond, the Supremes, Buddy Holly... and rightly so. But what about The Velvet Underground? Little Caesar and the Romans? The Stylistics, Sam Cooke, Thin Lizzy? These artists graced radios every day in the '50s, '60s and early '70s, and now grace them again every Friday afternoon on Colorado College's KRCC 91.5 FM, thanks to G.T., who through his magical dj-ing ability, has dug out all those songs you thought you had forgotten about. His show is called Vintage Voltage, or Vaultage; it's still being fought out in the KRCC offices. G.T.'s playlist is a diverse blend of funk, rock, pop, do-wop, soul and everything else that floated across the AM airwaves back in those days but has been lost in the Top 40 shuffle. Unlike other local oldies programs, Vintage Voltage is never, ever, stale, and G.T. never plays the same song twice in one day. Where else are you going to hear Bill Withels singing "Grandma's Hands" or Bobby Womack's "Across 110th St."? You rock, G.T. Keep it up. (KS)
