A Different Kind Of Oldies Show


A D*K*O*S started out by playing those forgotten and overlooked records from the 50's 60's and 70's.  We also specialized in presenting historical elements of American popular music every week.  In recent months we have become an almost entirely Doo-Wop show because of our relationship with The Doo Wop Cafe. 


I'm Steve Coletti, better known to my listeners as "Big Steve Cole". The idea behind my show is to play the oldies that most radio stations have stopped playing. Every once in a while I even play one that's even too obscure for those few stations that may still play most of what I play.

The usual format of our first hour is to present songs on a particular topic or doing a tribute to an artist who has recently passed away.  The other 3 hours are done in conjunction with The Doo Wop Cafe and features many rare group harmony records along with the more common vocal group tunes.
