Remember George Woods?

Yeah, the former Kansas City and St. Louis talk show host.  Back in February '08 he started setting up a series of internet "stations," each of which spotlighted a distinct music genre.  Since then, each of his "stations" have grown to a number of channels, including smooth jazz and a great bunch of oldies "stations" that pop up quickly and play with superior fidelity on even my pitiful DSL connection.

Radio George's fan base has grown to include listeners in 83 countries in over 3,700 cities. And he's selling ads that support his work.

Now George has added a hosted show called The Neon Beat that features great music from the 1940's, 50's and 60's. Listeners will hear a selection of great popular artists like Frank Sinatra, Perry Como, Nat King Cole, Doris Day, Dean Martin, Rosemary Clooney, The Lettermen, Henry Mancini, The Four Lads, Tony Bennett, Marilyn Maye, Percy Faith and Andy Williams. Two hours of new programming are presented each week.

Well, now.  It's what OldDogs do ...
