Thank you to everyone who tuned in to Decadio during the month of February. The most popular decade was the 1960s with the 2000s not far behind.

The most popular track, “Hot Sand” by the Shocking Blue, was released in 1969 as the b-side to their number one hit, “Venus.”

In 1988, Nirvana covered the Shocking Blue song, “Love Buzz” as their debut single. Listen for both renditions now playing in the 1960s and 1980s.

Kick off the new year with this classic 1967 clip of Billy Preston performing with Ray Charles and His Orchestra on The Ed Sullivan Show. Tune in to the 1960s to hear more from Mr. Preston and other musical greats of that era.
