Music has been an integral part of my life since early childhood. We actually had a "Juke Box" on our back porch when I was a small child. LOL and there was always a radio playing when the "Juke Box" was not in use. It just seemed that music was a necessity to our daily activities. My neighbor started taking band in high school and I used to listen to him practice his horn which further enhanced my interest in music. You guessed it! When I got to junior high school, I started taking band and from there I never slowed down.
I started my own small band at age of 14 and from there, my journey took me to the Sensational Epics! We organized the Epics in 1963 and immediately started recording on such record labels as Cameo, Warner Brothers and eventually Capitol Records. Our most notable accomplishment from the 60's was that we recorded the original version of "Be Young, Be Foolish, Be Happy" which turned out to be the biggest and most well known Beach Music song to date. Unfortunately, it was a cover of this song by the Tams that was a hit. LOL but none the less, we recorded the original version! We are currently recording on Ripete Records and have enjoyed success with our new recording efforts. As of the writing of this info, we have a song that is #2 and rising on the current "Beach Music Top 40 charts" from Cash Box Magazine.
Over the years, I've had the most wonderful pleasure of meeting and performing with some of the biggest stars in the music industry! To name a few: Ray Charles, Curtis Mayfield & The Impressions, The Drifters, James Brown, The Orioles, Billy Stewart, Jerry Butler, Percy Sledge and many, many more, too numerous to name! Among the friends that I made along the way were many radio disc jockeys, one of which was Rick Wrigley! Rick is a STAR in his own right and I am pleased to call him friend. Rick is responsible for getting me involved in Web Radio and I am pleased to join the Our Generation Radio family. I'm excited about this new adventure and I hope that you enjoy sharing my music with me. I hope it brings you as much joy as it does to me!!!!!!
Hi all! I’m DJSnowbird the host of the Doggie Playland Show on Tuesday nights here at Our Generation Radio! I’m in the center of the country in Wichita, Kansas. Yes tornado alley. LOL If you are wondering what type of music I play, well mostly Disco and 70s & 80s.
As a child I always loved music and was either singing or teaching myself how to play the piano, guitar, banjo, etc. (not that I play any of them very well though LOL) In school, I sang in choirs, girls glee and girls ensemble and even some in college! As you can tell by now that I’ve always loved music and wanted to be a famous singer, but alas that didn’t happen.
Since I knew I couldn’t make it singing, I thought how wonderful it would be for me to share my love of music with the world online. I’ve been spinning CD’s now online for a little over 20 years. I started out at a site called MaxChat and was there for a couple of years, then became a gypsy all over the web until I came to Our Generation Radio, I have never felt more loved and welcomed with open arms by all the other DJs and listeners here at OGR.
I also own my own Mobile DJ Service called Snowbird Entertainment and starting a new business venture of owning a Halloween store coming this fall of 2019.
With all that said, let me please say Thank You to all of you for supporting all of our DJs and Mr. Rick Wrigley for keeping this station up and running, by joining us in chat and tuning into all the great shows here at Our Generation Radio
Mark Dawson is the voice and personality of the weekly program, "making noise with Mark Dawson" , which airs Thursday nights at 9PM eastern on OurGenerationRadio.
Mark's "day job" is touring the country as the lead vocalist and bass player for the legendary pop/rock band The Grass Roots. Dawson, also an independent recording artist, author, mutli-faceted musician and original founding member of Orlando-based groups Simulcast, American Pop 60's and Mark Dawson and The Kings of Snack, was born in Chicago, IL on November 5, 1956. Mark and his family now reside in Orlando, Florida.
Lenn Johnston, Host of the Thursday evening OGR radio show Lenn Johnston’s Parallel Universe, appears on film and stage as an actor-comedian and musician. Like John Lennon, he’s always found drawing and disassembling language his preferred escapes from the humdrum. He’s performed comedy improv with the famed Second City and the Los Angeles New Barbarians.
Lenn gives tribute to his hero John Lennon with his CD Village Idiom, a collection of original songs, poetry, stories and illustrations capturing the irreverent, absurd, and witty spirit of John Lennon. Lenn performs solo and with bandmates his Lennonesque poems and 60-song Beatles repertoire. He played a 2008 benefit that included REO Speedwagon, Ambrosia and Three Dog Night’s Chuck Negron.
In Lenn’s 2016 appearance on Late Night With Conan O’Brien, Conan exclaimed, “It’s uncanny! It’s blowing my mind. It’s really hard to do a show with 1965 John Lennon here!” And Dave Mason, host of the San Diego Beatles Radio Show at 101.5 KGB, commented, “…If channeling is real, [he] WAS John Lennon… He had the look, the mannerisms. Everyone was amazed, to say the least!” Alan Merrill of The Arrows (I Love Rock N’ Roll) raved, “Lenn does the best John Lennon impression I’ve ever seen. It’s truly amazing.” Online music magazine EarCandy noted, Lenn “perfectly evokes both the spirit and imagery of John Lennon in one of the most original and effective tributes ever heard (and seen).”
Lenn has been featured on Good Day LA, CNN, BBC-Granada, BayTV-Liverpool, TV1-NYC, NBC’s It’s Worth What, Atlas TV–Spain, Beatle Brunch Radio–San Diego, Breakfast with the Beatles–Los Angeles, NYC’s Further Down The Rabbit Hole with Paula Gloria, The Eugene Mirman Project; and in print in Paris Match, Contact Music–a Japanese Magazine-book, MOOK.
Since the re-popularization of naughty people destroying the world, Lenn has appeared as an Evolutionary, encouraging good people to take out-clever the Neo-Conundrums with Love, Hope and Humor. His goal? To bring mirth to Earth and heal these troubled times with humor.

I'm Second Life's High-Tec Stray Cat Furry who gets to play with radio transmitters! Broadcasting from Nevada's Panther Valley (With only the occasional explosion now and again.) I could turn up anywhere to Twist your transistors. Most of my Childhood was spent learning Music, an activity my Mother and Grandmother both supported and encouraged. It was while attending St. Catherine's Military Academy that I met Paul Newman (A Local AM station DJ, not the actor) and became interested in Radio. During the early/mid 70's I hung out with "Humble Harve" Miller and Charlie Tuna at KKDJ-FM in Los Angeles. I came to InterNET radio in 2005.
I have a particular fondness for Rockabilly, Swing and Jump-Blues, but you can hear just about every sub-genre of Rock and Country on my shows. On my personal website you can paw through my playlists and find something you like.
In case you didn't know it.... Cat DJ's can scratch better than anyone...
