So, what am I offering? READ ON!!!
Picture yourself back in the 70's, 80's and even the 90's. You were glued to your transistor radio listening to the country top 40 presented by your local radio station. You had that radio glued to your ear or connected with the little earphone jack that immediately broke. Your local dj was great. He knew the music. He had the gift of talking which rarely occurs anymore. You loved the presentation of the music as much as the sounds. You liked the station jingles.
And on weekends when the local dj's had off, you listened to either taped shows they did during the week to be played on the weekend or a syndicated radio show featuring one of the greats.
It was the golden age of music. Music was king and the dj's were just as popular. You can relive those days whether you grew up then or just wish you had on only a handful of oldies shows. THIS IS ONE OF THEM.
OK guys and gals, A REAL TREAT!!!
I am beginning to list my last GREAT FLASHBACK SHOWS. This is probably the best classic rock show ever to air anywhere. And, while the music can be found anywhere, this show presents music in such creative sets it will please and amaze.
You will hear all the best in classic rock for FOUR hours on each show, ARRANGED IN GREAT THEMES.
Host BILL ST. JAMES, the host from the beginning of the show in the late 80's when still on lp. is a great dj. Every show has THREE one hour themes and THREE or FOUR mini themes in the fourth hour.
Flashback is an American radio show syndicated by Cumulus Media Networks (formerly Citadel Media and ABC Radio). Flashback plays a diverse mix of classic rock from the 1960s, 1970s, and 1980s. Other show elements include newscasts, classic TV and movie clips, commercials and comedy bits to create thematic segments from the 1960s into the 1990s. The four-hour program is syndicated to over 200 radio affiliates in the United States and Canada.
Flashback was originally hosted by voiceover artist Bill St. James. In January 2012 he was replaced by Matt Pinfield, who currently hosts 120 Minutes on MTV2 and is a former DJ and record executive
Bill was the heart of the series. When he left, without being able to say goodbye to his audience, he wrote an open letter to his fans. It is said to be one of the mistakes in radio syndication letting him go, much as ABC released Dick Bartley who had hosted his show for over 20 years.
Bill currently has a similar show on United Stations Radio Networks. Here is the story announcing his new venture.
Former “Flashback” host Bill St. James has joined with the United Stations Radio Networks for a new syndicated radio classic rock program, “Time Warp With Bill St. James.” The four-hour weekend show is produced by RTE Media, created by Dan Formento after the departure of he and St. James from Cumulus Media’s syndicated “Flashback” show- now hosted by Matt Pinfield. St. James is the announcer for NBC-TV’s “Sunday Night Football,” The Super Bowl” and “The Olympics,” and the commercial voice of 2012’s Oscar-winning Best Picture “The Artist.” His radio experience includes Hartford’s WEXT and WDRC, WIP Philadelphia, and New York’s WNEW-AM and WYNY-FM. The first new “Time Warp” is available for the weekend of March 17-18, with United Stations handling national ad sales and affiliate relations.
All this makes these classic shows even more desirable.
The show comes on 4 CD's (four hours) in perfect condition looking just like they were just pressed and WERE NEVER PLAYED.
THIS BATCH OF SHOWS CAME DIRECTLY FROM THE DISTRIBUTOR AND WERE 'STANDBY' SHOWS TO BE MAILED TO STATIONS THAT FOR ONE REASON OR ANOTHER DID NOT RECEIVE THEIR SHOW THAT WEEK OR WHEN THEY PREVIEWED THEM THEY FOUND A DEFECTIVE HOUR.
They come along with their cue sheets in excellent condition.
(Please remember! The listing picture is a generic picture of the series and not this show however they all look the same.) The CD's are quite attractive with The FLASHBACK logo across the top in bright colors as seen in the listing picture. They were produced as a quality item even though they were pressed for this assumed single playing on the broadcast date.
Again, these shows in my last batch of Flashback shows to be listed have never been played and came directly from the distributor's stock to me, not from my usual sources of radio station owners and general managers with whom I have dealt over the years.
All my other listed shows are in mint new condition and played only once since my sources have been direct radio station sources. Very few of my shows come through third party collectors where they may possibly could have been played again although usually not there either, as collectors tend to preserve their rarity by not playing them.
One of the most enjoyable and unpredictable features of this great show is that any times during each theme snippets of commercials, news items, interviews, movie soundtracks, tv soundtracks and other entertainment related to the theme is intermixed with the music in perfect relation to the theme. It makes the hours all that much more enjoyable.
AND, following the fourth hour are approximately ten tracks of bonus theme material including collages and interviews and entertainment bits all in the clear which make them great for download into your personal collection
AND a FLASHBACK STARPACK , a bonus track containing a collage of one group's major work in mix form.
THIS IS ONE QUALITY SHOW AND BELONGS IN YOUR COLLECTION!!!

Even the national commercials are interesting and fun to hear after all these years.
On this show they include: NAPA AUTO PARTS AT&T GOODYEAR TIRES AMERIDEBT "DANGER SIGNS" and other fun old national commercials you haven't heard in years.
Probably when you heard them back then they were an annoyance but now they are nostalgia! But if they still are annoying, you don't have to hear any of them - just hit the next track button and off you go back to the music.
This show needs to be in your collection. These are the last so get them while you can!
Don't worry, though, I will always sell my shows at reasonable prices. I am a collector too and know how hard it is to find a good deal anymore.
Remember, This is the genuine original show that was sent to the radio station for airing. It is NOT an unauthorized copy but the Real McCoy!!! I personally guarantee that every radio show that I sell is the original show sent to stations.
You are truly buying a show that will only increase in value and I am selling them at a price very close to what I paid for it. Remember too that this and all the radio music shows that you see on are not just about the music - the music can be found anywhere. It is the mixture of great music and great announcing that makes it so entertaining.
As well, it is a piece of radio and music history. Think of what they will be worth in a few years! (IF you wanted to sell.) I am selling to share with other music lovers what I was able to get at a reasonable price.
As always, for U.S. and International buyers, I charge only shipping on the first show you buy so the more you buy the more money you will save.
Good Luck and God Bless You.
