  1. Brought back memories of both 1981 and 1961.

    I love Norm. Listened to CBS FM in 70s’s and 80’s I listen to Norm now on Sirius.


  2. Yes, I thought Norm did the best job ever with the Sunday night doo-wop show on CBS FM. (It was called the “Nite Train” show then.) Since Norm is a former Alan Freed listener from Cleveland, he really knows the music first-hand! Norm always seemed to feature many of the doo-wop records on Midwest labels like Chess, VeeJay, and King, probably because that was what Freed was playing in Cleveland in the 50s.
