"Where Were You In '62 ?"

For oldies fans, that tagline from the 1973 movie evokes not only memories of the film, but memories of real life, growing up in the rock and roll era, the days of Top 40 radio.

While you'll find the songs on this Radio George channel here and there on other channels, there's nothing that can replace this particular playlist taken as a whole. It was the glue that held American Graffiti together.

A couple of special notes:

Flash Cadillac and the Continental Kids, the group that appears in the high school gym dance scenes, was actually a college band from Colorado hired by George Lucas to play two songs for the movie. One was "At the Hop," a hit for Danny and the Juniors and the other was "She's So Fine," which was written just for the film and was never a hit on its own. You'll hear both on this channel.

We've always thought that RADIO itself was one of the stars of the film, although it never got any credits as such. So we've added some songs about RADIO to this channel:

Song on the Radio - Al Stewart
On the Radio - Donna Summer
Turn Your Radio On - Ray Stevens
Yesterday Once More - Carpenters

And of course, the song about the guy on the radio who was in American Graffiti:

Clap for the Wolfman - The Guess Who

To complete your American Graffiti experience here on Radio George, you can click on any of the following links and enjoy a little more nostalgia, while the music of Radio George keeps on playing.


 The Story of American Graffiti - This lengthy review by Tim Dirks on filmsite.org does a great job of telling the story line of the film, along with a few comments about how the film was made without getting overly technical or geeky.

IMDB Photo Slideshow - This page on the Internet Movie Database website has all of the black and white publicity photos released by the studio's PR office, and a collection of lobby posters, album, CD, DVD, and other printed publicity items.

Wolfman Jack - An in-depth look at one of the most unique radio personalities ever, from Wikipedia. Very detailed and well-written.

Personal note from Radio George: If you're in radio or a big radio fan, try to pick up a copy of Wolfman Jack's book, Have Mercy.  His autobiography is a great story of the rock n' roll business and an inside look at radio that most people never get the chance to see.
