For the past eleven years senior citizen, and teacher turned internet DJ, Lee Douglas, has helped lead the fight for a resurgence of Oldies music across the country “You take 500 songs and play them over and over again nation-wide and eventually people are going to tire of it and tune out.” He believes that the lack of variety is what killed oldies radio. That and the fact that most program directors aren’t old enough to remember even the Beatles so naturally anything before that doesn’t exist in their minds. The baby boomers have very little choice; of course there is satellite radio if they can afford it. So Old Time Rock n Roll was born, to give oldies lovers an alternative. Despite being the largest internet and podcast oldies show around the world, Old Time Rock n Roll, he has set his sights on being even bigger. “Everyday people come up to me and say I wish I could listen to you while I am driving to work”, Douglas says. Now Lee has partnered with Stitcher radio, to have the show streamed to any type of cell phone on the market. And with the new technology in today's cars http://www.oldtimernr.com anything is possible. Add this to ten podcast and two internet radio networks and he can be heard almost anywhere.
