Collectors’ Corner is about discovering and rediscovering music that rocked the world in days gone by. Host Henry Fogel crafts an historical narrative out of his personal record collection, a treasury amassed from decades of jaunts to record stores and resale shops across the globe.
“Collectors’ Corner features a wide range of recordings that I feel are true classics of the industry…either unusual repertoire that I feel deserve a wider public, or performances unique in their interpretive profile, sense of commitment, and intensity. Many of these recordings are long out-of-print, or hard to locate in the United States.”

If you love the oldies — from the 50s to the 70s — you’ll love WVBI’s Sunday Night Oldies show. Originally hosted by Phil Becker, it was our first locally produced show originating from our BIC Center studio every Sunday night. Phil worked with you, our listeners, to sort through his “stacks of wax” to find the “platters that matter.” We still use those playlists today as we carry on the show in Phil’s memory.
Sunday evenings from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. on WVBI.
