History of Idaho Broadcasting
Invites you to RSVP for our Next No-Host Luncheon
Friday June 29, 2018
Smoky Mountain Pizzeria Grill
415 East Parkcenter Blvd. Boise, Idaho 83706 (208) 429-0011
We’ll hear recordings of
Novelty 45 rpm Records
of the 1950’s & 1960’s
You’ll also get a written list
of the Top 100 Novelty Songs!
BYU Boy Missionary hit #17 on the KYME Top 40 in 1966!
Art Gregory hosts this fun & unusual program on Novelty
Records that were played on Idaho radio stations in the
1950’s and the 1960’s! Some were local or regional hits,
such as Lynn Bryson’s “BYU Boy Missionary” which KFXD
would not play! We’ll hear select novelty songs from both
the 1950’s and 60’s including the top Novelty Song of both
decades - Sheb Wooly’s 1958 classic “Purple People Eater”
The #1 Novelty Song of the 1950s’s & 1960’s
We’ll also hear some “rare” novelty songs that made the
List like Senator Bobby’s “Wild Thing” and Stan Freburg’s
“That’s My Boy” and “Tele-Vee-Shun” both of which are
perhaps more relevant today than when they were recorded
in the early 1950’s! Everyone who attends will receive a free
list of the top 100 Novelty Songs from the 1950s & 1960s!
KYME played “Senator Bobby” in February of 1967
We’ll also have some KIDO, KYME, and KFXD Music Charts
that show some of these songs on the Boise Top-40 Charts!
Bring any old records or record charts you wish to share!
