This Week's Oldies Flotsam
Get your kicks on Route 66 (31 videos of the old series)

 

Monday nights 8:00 - 11:00PM ET on TopShelfOldies
Hi everybody and welcome to the HiFi Party, home of the UNcommon oldie. Here's the tour (use Quick Find to easily get around). First up is this week's Second Chance Survey with two flash players, one containing the current four songs on the survey and the other loaded with every #1 song to hit the survey since 2005. Further down, you'll come to the Show Archives. I recommend the archives "Streaming" option, but if you want to save the show, right click on Download and choose "save target as" (IE users), or for Firefox users, "save link as". On the far right of each show date is a link to the playlist. Further down is a listening box for TopShelf Oldies with a link to their website. The chat box below that, allows you to join the TopShelf chatroom using either Mibbit on the left (the easy way) or dedicated chat software on the right (mIRC for instance). New folks opting for Mibbit, want to pay close attention (ie, read) the left hand side of the chat box, and act accordingly. On the right side, you'll find out about mIRC, which is the software the experienced folks here use for chatting. Along with various servers you can use to get into our chatroom, I also provide a link for a setup primer for mIRC. Further south is the TopShelf show calendar. Finally, you can email me with requests and/or comments. Thanks for visiting!
