Program Title: NewFound Records - Ep. 677 - 1962 & 1972 Part 1
Description: For this episode we rewind 60 years to 1962 and head for the record bins to see what’s new in NL vinyl. Pickings are slim compared to today, but we do score a few gems. Included in our stash is a super rare LP by DICK NOLAN, plus a cover of a Johnny Burke song by OMAR BLONDAHL, and a historic LP of Otto Kelland compositions sung beautifully by LEONARD MEEHAN.

Then we fast forward 10 years to music that’s celebrating its Golden Anniversary this year. What a change from ‘62! The record bins in ‘72 are stuffed with a cornucopia of local vinyl. Our platter is stacked high so we’ll feature music from 1972 for the next few episodes of New Found Records.

For the inaugural episode, we’ll spin a track from each of two Lps that went Gold for DICK NOLAN that year. Yes, that’s right! Dick had two gold records in 1972 and one of them went platinum by today’s standards. We also have spins by 19 year old DEREK PILGRIM, Grand Bank’s GEORGE GRANDY, and a rousing instrumental version of The Ol’ Polina by THE STRINGBUSTERS.

Lots more super obscurities too that you’re only going to hear on The New Found Records Radio Hour.
