Exclusive Shows

Welcome to "K TODD"! Before we had the 80's...we were lovin' the 70's! It was the Era of Mood rings, lava lamps, sea monkeys and pet rocks. We were watching disaster movies like "Earthquake", "The Towering Inferno" and "Airport", and on TV it was "All In The Family", "Happy Days", and the debut of "Saturday Night Live". But one of the most wonderful things of this era was K- Tel Records...you remember those albums sold on TV that gave us "22 original hits by the original stars".

K Todd is a tribute to this era of great music and memories. Join us each Monday evening at 8ET on www.star1079.com

Call Todd anytime to leave a request or comment voicemail...(315) 665-1970

New in 2015

Those in the United States unfortunately are unable to listen to us. This is because the United States Copyright Royalty Board, failed to renew the Small Webcaster Act of 2009, which allowed small webcasters like STAR1079.com and Easy108.net a lower royalty rate based on revenue. The current royalty rate for 2016 would cost this station anywhere from $1500 to $3300 per month. Much more than we could earn and not comparable with other royalties we pay. So because of the price put on U.S. listeners ears, we have had to block access. Feel free to sign the petition to congress.

Missing Some 80s?

Every once and a while we get a request for a song that we don't have already ripped off the LP, 8-Track or cassette, which causes us to make a mad dash down to the 80s Vault so we can hook up the patch cables and get it ready to play for you. If you know of an 80s song that we aren't playing, but should, then send us an email to 'requests' AT star1079.com and we will get it prep'd for play.
