Nothing But Old 45's with Larry Kratka

  • Saturday: 8:00PM - 10:00PM
Larry Kratka2
Genre: 
Oldies

Nothing But Old 45s with your host Larry Kratka is a radio show that plays classic hits from the late 1950's, a healthy dose of 60's and 70's and even some early 80's hits. You'll hear the best of the best, many one-hit-wonders plus some songs you rarely hear on radio.

He actually plays 45RPM records too.....just like the kind you used to play when you were younger. After every two songs, I offer information about the songs and artists plus some music trivia from time to time. One highlight of every show features an Instrumental Hits section and even an occasional Silly or Novelty Song. If you listen carefully, you may even hear occasional scratches on the records.

The host and producer of Nothing But Old 45s, Larry Kratka, is a seasoned broadcast professional that has, literally, PLAYED most of the songs you’ll hear on the show when he was on the air at radio stations in Massachusetts, Connecticut, New Hampshire, Florida and Georgia. Kratka first hit the air on WBRL in Berlin, NH in 1966 and has been on the air continually since then. While in middle and high school, he was usually the kid that played the hits at school dances. So when he talks about some of the songs he plays, he remembers playing them as a kid and through the years on radio.

The name "Nothing But Old 45's" implies that 45 rpm records are played. True. In fact, there are thousands of 45’s and LP’s in the music library. Kratka researches each and every artist before recording the shows and admits he has learned a lot of “nifty” stuff in the process. Catch Nothing But Old 45s with Larry Kratka every Saturday from 4 pm to 6 pm for 2 hours of great music spun on the brilliant sound of a needle on the wax on turntables.
