Sirius will launch "The Doo-Wop Drive-In," a weekly two-hour music program of group harmonies, on May 25. Bob Thomas will host the program, to air Sunday nights from 10 p.m. to midnight Eastern on Sirius Gold / Stream 5.
Joel Salkowitz, Sirius VP of music content and programming, said that the "great music of the '50s and early '60s (has) been abandoned by traditional radio outside of occasional specialty shows."
"The Doo-Wop Drive-In" will present a mix of well-known doo-wop oldies and lesser-known favorites, primarily from the years between 1948 and 1966. Vocal groups featured will include the Flamingos,
the Five Keys, Dion & the Belmonts, the Del-Vikings, the Moonglows, the Harptones, the Drifters, the Duprees, the Heartbeats, Little Anthony & the Imperials, the Cadillacs, the Regents, the Solitaires and the Clovers.
Sirius Gold plays music from the late 1950s and early 1960s. Bob Thomas has hosted a variety of doo-wop and oldies shows in New Brunswick, N.J., first on WCTC/WQMR in the 1970s and then on WMGQ(FM) from 1985 to 1995.
