SAN FRANCISCO, March 26, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- TuneIn, the world’s leader in live audio, announced today the one-year anniversary of Boss Radio 66 on the platform, spinning more than 7,000 digitized 45s and retro radio ads and jingles from legendary Boss Radio formats like KHJ, KILT, KDAY, KYA, KCOH, WABC and so many more. To celebrate, the team behind the eclectic 60s music station, Tom Hanks and Producer Debbie Daughtry, revealed their favorite songs from thousands of music tracks in the station library.

Launched on TuneIn in March 2023, Boss Radio 66 was founded by Brooklyn Radio Producer Debbie Daughtry as an homage to the 1960s ‘Boss Radio’ format. The 24-hour stream features an eclectic mix of 60s music that is all hand-picked and hand-digitized from classic 45s and 78s to bring vinyl to the digital age. Hanks, a long-time fan of the genre and Daughtry’s playlists, joins the station regularly with special shows like British Invasion, Radio History and Hanksgiving. The station keeps music alive that may have been otherwise lost to mainstream audiences.

“I'm so thrilled that younger listeners are hearing this music for the first time,” said Daughtry. “Artists like The Mighty Hannibal and Masked Man and The Agents are finally finding an audience with Boss Radio 66 listeners!”
