Wow, 1959, lucky you to have found TV at such a young age! :bigthumbsup:

I suggest you drop the names with "0" votes and add a few new names (Roy Orbison, Neill Diamond, Dr. Hook, the Hollies, Meatloaf) come to mind.

MinnieM, of course, an obvious choice .... the Beatles!
Think you should do a revamp of that list of yours Taltarzac .. Delete a few obvious ones like Russell Ames, Doris Day, Giselle MacKenzie, and please add the Beatles, such great music. :bigthumbsup:

JohnZ. Give it about 20 years for WVLG and most of these lists. :joke:

I have never heard any of the classical musicians on that station WVLG though like Mozart, Beethoven, Ravel, Vivaldi, Pachelbel. Probably would not hear them in 20 years either.

I'm still in shock that Meatloaf got 4 votes. If my day is really bad, it is time to take the Miata, put on Paradise and drive!!!

Sure would be nice to hear more blues on WVLG.

JohnZ ... LOVE your list. I used to see John Mayall twice a year when he played at Slim's in San Francisco. Not too sure I would call Stevie Ray Vaughan a good vocalist but his guitar licks put him high on any list in my mind.

Second that, Redwitch. JohnZ's list is the kind of music I would listen to if given a choice. I would throw in some current music too but not all that much. :bigthumbsup:
