“Harold Hits Jackpot”
Harold, Caveman’s sidekick, recently made a trip to Laughlin, NV and hit a $100 jackpot on a video poker machine. For someone who counts out pennies to buy a Snickers Bar…this is a major win.
“Baby Alligator Found In DO Pond”
The Deep Oldies staff wold like to thank who ever the prankster was the left the baby alligator in the studio pond after the “Monthly Staff Meeting and Luncheon”. The baby gator which we fondly named “Chompers” has been captured and turned over to the Wild Life Zoo on the west side where he will able to live and long and happy life.

“Herrick at Night?????”
Rumor has it that Chris “I am not a fish” Herrick is in negotiation with Andy about doing a week night show 3 days a week…the sticking point of course is “salary”. Chris is demanding “$0.00/ hour” and Andy is offering “$0.00 / week”. They still seem to be a long ways apart. More news to follow as this progresses.
“Hot Rod in The Hot Seat”
Jimmy “Hot Rod” Phord found himself in the “Hot Seat” once again on 4th of July weekend. No he wasn’t stealing John Deere’s after too much Ram Sauce this time. Apparently Jimmy’s little farm might be growing something more then corn and barley. Jimmy was overheard telling investigating officers “I have no idea how that got into my fields”. When being taken away Jimmy could be heard yelling “Another Gringo Goin’ Down” and “Cracker’s Live Matter”. More to follow.

Gary “Caveman” Laatsch Returns To Deep Oldies
After several years of of bringing his unique and slightly demented style to the mornings on our sister station “Radio Free Phoenix”, Gary decided to re-join the Deep Oldies air staff. Starting back on Feb 6th, 2017 Gary brought “Morning Madness” to weekdays from 8am to 10am AZ Mtn time. Rumor has it that several of his old friends from the early days of Deep Oldies will be making cameo appearances on his show.
Deep Oldies has an exciting new specialty show starting Sunday, June 26th at 12pm (Arizona time) called Dan’s Garage. The show is hosted by long-time New York musician, Dan Frank. It’s a 1 hour journey through Dan Frank’s massive collection of hard to find Garage and Psychedelic rock 45’s from the 60’s & 70′s. All songs played from the original vinyl 45′s!
Dan is a musician and record collector from Rochester, NY where he has lived and worked his entire life. He was heavily influenced by his two older brothers who were both musicians, but especially his oldest brother, Vinny who was a record collector in his own right. Dan started collecting records when he was in his teens, but started collecting garage and psychedelic 45’s in earnest around 1984 when he was 24 years old. He formed the local garage rock act “The Projectiles” around the same time. Dan still collects 45’s to this day and his voracious appetite for cool and hip sounds from the 60’s and 70’s are represented on his blog “Dan’s Garage”.
Join us for this great show each and every Sunday starting June 26th on Deep Oldies!
