Johnny Miller: Sunday Beach and Oldies Show
Born and raised in Sanford, I knew this was the place I wanted to live even though it was 150 miles away from the beach. That’s why I decided to bring the beach to Sanford in the form of Beach Music and Oldies.
I spent some time working at WGNI in Wilmington, North Carolina, where I worked the 6:00pm to midnight shift. From there, I moved back to Sanford and in 1980, I started playing Beach and Oldies Music on WFJA 105.5FM. The show originally started at 8:00pm and went until midnight on Sunday evenings.
I had a fairly large collection of 45′s at the time and with the help of the late Larry Crocket, who sent me a bunch of Ocean Drive albums with the more popular beach classics, I did the show Live every Sunday night. Dale Van Horne would host the show for me from time to time when I needed to be out of town and was a guest on the program numerous times.
The show would often times receive as many as 60 calls a night on the request line as it was very well received in this area. From that, I made a lot of lifetime friends.
The early days of the Beach and Oldies Show were some of the happiest days of my life. I was playing some of the new beach songs that the record companies would send me along with the beach classics. I’d also play oldies from the 50′s and early 60′s. Very few stations would even play oldies at that time.
One thing I’ll never forget from that time is the night that a man and his wife came to the radio station with a cooler and a couple of beach blankets. He told me he did not have the time or money to go to the beach and hoped I would let them spread out the blankets on the floor of the station and listen to my show. I agreed and they seemed to have had a really great time.
In the fall of 1994, I made the decision to give up the program, a decision that lasted a few years.
In 2003, I decided to give it another try and went back on-the-air at WFJA once again. The program was cut back to 2 hours and we started the broadcast at 9:00pm in order to squeeze in “At The Beach with Charlie Brown” which also still airs on WFJA. Charlie Brown, Bob Jones and many other WKIX radio legends have been guests on my show over the years.
I hope you enjoy the program and I appreciate those of you that have called or contacted me to let me know you’re listening. Hopefully we can continue it for many years to come and I sincerely appreciate your support and the support of my sponsors in keeping the program on the air.
