The Vintage Group Harmony Show started on Satellite, Cable and Radio on 9/21/91. It has since been broadcast continuously for over twenty-nine years. And it has also been available on the internet (via Yesterday USA Radio Networks) for over ninteen years. The show (which is commercial free) features the recordings of the pioneer vocal groups from the 1930s, 1940s & 1950s from Tony's personal collection. While mostly obscure groups and rare material are played, you also can hear such groups as the Ink Spots, Flamingos, Moonglows, Spaniels, Ravens, Orioles, etc.

When the disk jockey, Alan Freed, came to WINS in New York City in 1954, Tony took an immediate interest in vocal group music. Freed would play the Moonglows, Five Keys, Flamingos, etc. The first record that Tony bought was "Earth Angel" by the Penguins on a 78-rpm in 1954. He was 12 years old at the time. Tony continued to collect records that he heard on Freed's radio show until entering college in 1959. Several years later he discovered that there were also excellent vocal groups in the 1930's, 1940's and early 1950's, such as the Ink Spots, Four Knights, Deep River Boys, etc. So he began to collect these earlier records. And those are the years that are featured on the unique "Vintage Group Harmony Show." In addition, "The Vocal Group Harmony Web Site" was started in May 1997 and covers the same genre of music.
The Vintage Group Harmony Show is one hour of 1930s to mid-1950s vocal group records. It is broadcast on Yesterday USA Radio Networks.
