The host and producer of Nothing But Old 45s, Larry Kratka, is a seasoned broadcast professional that has, literally, played most of the songs you’ll hear on the show when he was on the air at various radio stations in his career. Kratka first hit the air in 1966 and has been on the air continually since then. While at school, he was usually the kid that played the hits at school dances. So when he talks about some of the songs he plays, he remembers playing them as a kid and through the years on radio.
The name “Nothing But Old 45’s” implies that 45 rpm records are played. True. In fact, there are thousands of 45’s and LP’s in the music library. Kratka researches each and every artist before recording the shows and admits he has learned a lot of “nifty” stuff in the process.
