Remember When” features the music of the 1940’s, 50’s, and 60’s. Artists such as Benny Goodman, Duke Ellington, and Billie Holiday remind us of an era of music long gone, but not forgotten. Host John Goodman was born and raised in Boston; has a B.A. in Religion from the University of Virginia. After serving as a US Army Officer, he spent the rest of his business career in the construction industry. He still has his original FCC License from working part time in radio back in the 1950’s, and still uses, on KVMR, many of the vinyl LP’s he used on radio those many years ago.
In 2011, John was fortunate enough to share in the John Nichols Award, presented to for outstanding KVMR music programming. “Remember When” provides a bit of historical background on the artists, but concentrates on providing the music itself for listening.
