Shows

First up, the Show Calendar to find what's on tonight or any other night.  Right below that are the DJ profiles.  Read a general description of their shows, communicate with them via email, Facebook, and Twitter, check out their websites and in many cases, their show archives, in case you missed a show.

You can now record any (see the NOTE below) TopShelf show.  It's  easy, free (for one show) and doesn't require that your pc be on.  So what is this technological miracle you ask.  It's found at a website called DAR.FM  First, click on the link and register for an account.  Use a real email account.  Then, when you want to record a show, look for this graphic associated with the show.   Click on it and you'll see this.  Click on it and type in the same email address you used to register with DAR.  Then hit Go.  When the show has been recorded, you will receive an email from DAR with a link to click to listen to your show.   NOTE  With a free account, you can record only one show.  If you want to buy a Pro account, you can record as many as you want.  The site, to this webmaster, is flaky and unreliable so I don't suggest you make the purchase.

Lee Michael Demsey & the DC Dynamos

The Time Machine
8-11P (check calendar for different hosts)

The Time Machine is hard to define. As the name tells you, we take you forward and backward in time, but that's just part of the equation. With ten differt hosts, everyone has a different approach, but we're all trying to do the same thing, keep you entertained with the best tunes we can find, usually the more obscure the better. However,  we try to mix in some songs you might know, but haven't grown tired of. Based out of suburban Washington, the DC Dynamos aim to please, and we like to think we hit the bulls-eye more often that not.

Alex Galbraith

The Platter Party
Alternating with two other hosts.  Thursday 8-11P (check calendar)

Alex plays mostly music from the mid 50's to the mid 60's. The show is filled with Teeners, Rock'n'Roll, DooWop, Girl Groups, Instrumentals, Surf,  Rockabilly and phone in requests. Add to the music a few TV themes and radio jingles of the day along with old time commercials . All in all, it's a nostalgic trip into the past with rare tunes never played on the radio.

Jim Sinner's An Hour with the Sinnerman or Rockabilly Special
following the Platter Party 11-12P (check calendar)

The Real Deal with Tom Diehl

Vic Trola

Off the Record with Vic Trola

Alternating with two other hosts.  Thursday 8-11P (check calendar)

Spend some time with Vic Trola, as he takes you “Off The Record”. A collector since his teens, “The Vic” is hopelessly engulfed in the under-played and never played songs of the '50s, 60s and beyond!  For many years he has championed the rare and obscure sides from his [still] growing collection.  “Off The Record” is anything but predictable, and The Vic wouldn’t have it any other way.  His easy-going manner will keep you listening and wondering “what’s next".

Vinyl Treasures
8-12M

For the first two hours of the show (8-10P ET), I feature vocal group harmony and R&B at its best from the 50's & early 60's   I also play Rock n' Roll, Teeners, Soul, & a little Rock-a-billy!  For the second half of my show (10-12M), I spin music primarily from 1964 through 1969.  All the music comes directly from rare original 45's, as I have over 150,000 records in my collection.  You can even watch me spin these 45's in Topshelf's Tiny Chat room!

Relics and Rarities
9-12M

I have a music library of over 500,000 songs including 100,000 plus original 45's, many rare that sound great and leave you wondering how they never became hits. Relics & Rarities on Topshelf Oldies is the most fun for me because I have total freedom to play whatever sounds good with no restrictions.  Combining the many lost 45 gems with cool hits has been the formula for Relics & Rarities since February 1996 when this show first aired on WPDQ. Relics & Rarities also played to a national audience on XM, and is currently heard in several markets through syndication.
