Turn Back the Clock
Volume 5



Considered by some to be the first oldies radio program, Turn Back the Clock ran on Armed Forces Radio from 1955 to 1962. Helmed by Andy and Virginia Mansfield, the program introduced several innovations that later shows of this type would copy and evolve. The first aspect of the program that set a tone yet to be heard on radio was its basic format, that of playing songs recorded in the past, some as far back as the era of cylinders instead of vinyl. This gave Turn Back the Clock an even more unique tone than today’s oldies shows tend to have. Music had changed and grown so dramatically by the time this program aired that listeners truly were hearing songs from another era.
 
Another characteristic of the program that later oldies hosts would emulate literally related to the show’s title. Equally hosts of the show, Andy Mansfield, at least according to his own words ending the program, acted as the curator of the old songs and Virginia made sure new music was played, especially new versions of Andy’s choices. Normally, a song would play that was a more recent recording of an old song and then, after it ended and Virginia talked about the artist and how great the tune was, Andy would ‘turn back the clock’ and play a version of the song closer to its original debut, and many times the first recording of the song. Andy talked about the song about to play, a ‘tick tock’ would begin, blending in and eventually fading as the song played. This compare and contrast component of the show is probably its strongest aspect and most appealing characteristic. Even for modern listeners, hearing songs written seventy to even a hundred or more years ago as they were originally performed and then by artists that some may even recognize from their own youth today is a unique experience.
