Divorced? Widowed? Over 50? You're not alone. The number of mature men who are "Suddenly Solo," by choice or not, has grown remarkably. No matter what the underlying circumstances, many Suddenly Solos find themselves searching for real-life coping skills as they enter into this new (and yes, exciting!) single phase of their lives. On the Suddenly Solo radio show, Hal Spielman and Marc Silbert (authors of the book, Suddenly Solo - A Lifestyle Road Map to the Mature Widowed or Divorced Man) talk about dating, housekeeping, finances, sex (by the way, there are more single women out there then there are single men!) and so many other issues. With their library of original research and their encouraging and light-hearted manner, it makes great listening for both men and women. Wednesdays at 10am on 88.1fm.

The Grooveyard It's a quiet night. You're bored. You try to find something of interest on the radio dial. Then, all of a sudden you hear it. That's right; it's Rock N Roll in its earliest form. It may not be 1962 you've just stumbled into “The Grooveyard”. Chuck Berry, Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis, Little Richard, The Moonglows, The Crows, The Chantels, Frankie Lymon & The Teenagers. They were indeed the saints of this new sound that had angered adult America and threatened the very livelihood of capitalist America. These young men and women, along with their cohorts of Dee Jays (Alan Freed, Wolfman Jack, Jocko) taught Rock N Roll how to crawl and eventually walk. Saturday- 7pm on 88.1fm.
