Seven O’Clock Challenge
Every Sunday night at 7 p.m., The Greaser will take two songs that have the same music and same lyrics but are recorded by two different groups or artists. The Greaser will put the two songs against each other and you, the loyal listeners of Greene County Gold, get to vote for your favorite version.
At 8 p.m. every Sunday night The Greaser will bring you a New/Old Song; “New” because he’s never played the song on Greene County Gold before. “Old” because the song has to fall between the years 1955 and 1970. And that’s how you get the “New/Old Song”.
Sequel Songs/Answer Songs
This year, Sunday nights at 9 p.m., The Greaser will be bringing you some “sequel” or “answer” songs. Here’s how it works. First, the Greaser will play a song from the 50s/60s. Then he’ll follow that song up with it’s sequel. For example: Big Bad John (by Jimmy Dean) followed by The Cajun Queen (also by Jimmy Dean). OR…perhaps the Greaser will bring you a song from the 50s/60s and follow THAT song up with it’s answer song. For example: Are You Lonesome Tonight? (by Elvis Presley) followed by Yes, I’m Lonesome Tonight (by Dodie Stevens). So tune in Sunday night at 9 p.m. to find out what Sequel/Answer Song the Greaser is going to feature on Greene County Gold!
The Vinyl Vault
At 10 p.m. every Sunday night, The Greaser digs into his personal archives to bring you a song from original vinyl. That’s right; The Greaser actually plays you a song from a record. You see, these days most of the material you hear on radio has either been converted to a digital format or has been transferred to CD. But there is just something about hearing a song from vinyl…complete with the pops, crackles and hisses. So The Greaser digs into the archives once every Sunday night to bring you a song from vinyl. Sometimes it’s a 45 rpm, occasionally it’s a track from a 33 1/3 rpm, and once in a great while he goes really deep into the archives to bring you a song from a 78 rpm.
