Go Go Radio Moscow

Postby radiofan » Mon Jul 15, 2013 5:47 pm

In 1967 while thumbing through a Billboard or Cash Box magazine at Kelly's Records in New Westminster, I remember seeing a 45 listed that never became a
hit and it was never released in Canada. After finding it on You Tube and finally hearing it after 46 years, I can see why it wasn't a hit! It does have a radio
theme though, so here it is ... Nikita The K and "Go Go Radio Moscow" from 1967.

Those who danced were thought to be quite insane by those who couldn't hear the music.

Now THAT is a rarity. It only has 14 views on YouTube so far, but that's likely more than the number of air plays it got in the sixties. Too funny.

It is now on a 56 cut double CD called "Ya Gotta Have Moxie Volume 2", which is described as a "Tribute To The Pioneering Garage-Punk Label Moxie Records":
