Hi, I'm Music Mike.
Thanks for joining me on "Flashback Favorites." As many of you know, Flashback Favorites has been a very popular music destination on YouTube for over 10 years, with more than 30,000 subscribers. "Flashback Favorite" fans come from all over the world, from almost every country and even some of the most remote places that you can possibly imagine. There is no "typical" Flashback Favorite fan. They are from all nationalities, all races, all religions, all political views, all degrees of education, all colors and all classes. The one common thread that we all share and that draws us to Flashback Favorites is.....the music. Yes, music speaks a universal language that we all understand, especially when it's top quality music like you hear on KVKVI Radio.
As a former radio station DJ, Music Director and General Manager.....I've been collecting records, CD's and audio files for many years. With so many different songs in my collection, I thought it would be fun to share with you some of the songs that I think should have been hits....but were not. Or, maybe the song did well at the time, but rarely gets played today. It's possible that some of these songs may have been hits in countries other than the United States. Generally, these recordings did not climb very high on the American "Hot 100" Chart published by Billboard Magazine.....or, they may not have charted at all. These are the kind of songs that sound great but for some reason, did not get the promotion they needed or maybe they just didn't sound right for the time. I also like to feature rare and hard to find stereo versions of songs that we typically heard only in mono for all these years.
The internet radio version of "Flashback Favorites" features Pop, Rock & Soul music from all around the world.....not just the United States. So, you may hear a song that you don't recognize, but it very well may have been a hit in Canada, the UK, the Philippines, Germany, Eastern Europe, Japan, New Zealand, Australia or South America (and many other places!). "Flashback Favorites Radio" combines the non-hits..................with the hits...........from yesterday, 2K and today. 6 decades of the best music. The greatest hits....and the songs you missed.......worldwide on KVKVI Radio.
Thank you for listening!
Listener Comments About KVKVI
"Regular commercial radio today is so demographic based. The music becomes very repetitive and I get tired of hearing the same songs day in, day out.....a reason I can't stand to listen to it any more. Now, I have a new oulet to hear a much better mix of music...KVKVI !"

"KVKVI refreshingly reminds me and re-aquaints me with my past but realizes
very astutely that those days are gone.
KVKVI is a reflection, a re-living....not a re-creation. Most radio stations try to force you back there.
KVKVI keeps it fresh with a retro twist"
