Flashback radio

Carnegie Mellon station WRCT-FM (88.3) has a different take on the traditional year-end countdown theme. Jay Thurber, who hosts a weekly oldies program, will be playing the Top 100 songs that would have been played on New Year's Eve 1962.

Thurber compiled his list using hit surveys from Pittsburgh's then-Top 40 station KQV-AM and WABC-AM in New York, along with the Cash Box Top 100. The program also will feature news items and commercials from the era.

The show airs from 9 to midnight tonight.

Tomorrow, WRCT host Zombo will host a six-hour New Year's Day version of his "Mondo Record Party." Zombo plays an eclectic mix of often unusual music and also hosts live DJ shows at clubs around town.

His guest will be Duane Jones, who was a WRCT host in the 1960s.

It airs from noon to 6 p.m. tomorrow.

WORD also will look back at the top contemporary Christian hits of the year in the "WORD-FM 2002 Top 50 Countdown." It's hosted by Kenny Woods and airs noon to 6 p.m. Sunday.
