Goldoldies/Goldradio is the brain child of Jerry Russell known to all as Chief.

The station was started some years ago, but due to ill health, Chief was unable to dedicate the time he wished to develop the station to it's full potential till early 2000. Chief lived in the beautiful Lake Wallenpaupack area of northeast Pennsylvania in the Pocono Mountains.

Ultimately, Chief’s vision was to Goldradio’s audience, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Chief wanted Goldradio to be the best interactive Music/Chat site on the internet.

With Chief’s passing in May, 2014, Goldradio went through a management change. Goldradio’s ownership was transferred from Chief to his wife, Chriss.

Chief wanted to give his audience American and British music not heard in it's purest form anywhere else in the world.

Goldradio’s format, strictly speaking, is Oldies, Doowop and Old Time Radio.

For example, Goldradio caters for both the casual doowop enthusiast to the professional hard-core rhythm and blues collector. Goldradio has three of the best dj's in this genre: George Frunzi, Mogie, and Carl Tancredi.

Listeners can access the music from the comforts of their computers. How?
