John Alexanderson John Alexanderson
Top O' The Morning

Why would anyone be interested in those old things? --Jelly Roll Morton

Well, we're interested in "those old things," and maybe you are too. Daytimes, WRDV recalls our roots in those great Jazz and Swing tunes that immortalize the American Twentieth Century. Here's an invitation to pour another cup of coffee (and have another piece of pie?). Sit back and cruise the forenoon with our "Top O' the Morning" show. We'll feature the original hits of the '30s and '40s as well as a few classics from the late '20s or early '50s for fun. Take our "Just One Little Half Hour" Test. Lock your dial on "Top O' the Morning" for 30 minutes any Monday between 8 and Noon and see if our show doesn't live up to its name. We think you'll be interested--maybe even hooked.
