Now Playing at the Shady Dell: January 1966

Happy New Year! Yes, we're open.

It's a brand new year, and with so much great music on the horizon, I have a feeling that 1966 will be our greatest ever! Everywhere you look the music scene is exploding: the Motor City, Chi-town, Memphis, NOLA, Muscle Shoals, Frisco, L.A., NYC, Jersey, Philly, Central PA, and across the pond. Everybody's getting into the act!

It's time once again to take a peek inside the Dell jukebox to find out which songs are new since last month, which songs are hot, and which songs have been dropped from the lineup.

Experience the look and sound of young America!

Big changes are coming to the jukebox next month and in the coming year.

Which of these records will still be hot in February? Which ones will get voted off?



You have
one month
to speculate
but remember,
ladies & gentlemen,
this is only
an exhibition,
this is not
a competition;
so please --
no wagering!







Have a Shady day!
