This weekend, Daylight Savings Time officially ends (Sunday at 2am) and we turn back the clocks for that extra hour they swiped from us back in the spring. Hit Oldies is celebrating with a GONE BUT NOT FORGOTTEN WEEKEND – all for your Halloween fun!

Have you heard that every episode of PARTY DOWN is now available on Hulu Plus (while the first five episodes will be available for a limited time on Hulu.com). What’s PARTY DOWN, you ask?

It’s s comedy that  premiered on Starz in 2009, and features an enviable ensemble of actors, includingAdam Scott, Lizzy Caplan, Jane Lynch, Ken Marino, Ryan Hansen, Martin Starr and Megan Mullally.

With the latest reboot based on the beloved TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES heading to theaters in August, it seems only appropriate that we note this labor of love by three part-time filmmakers who have spent years tracking down contributors for a documentary called Turtle Power. The documentary will bed released on DVD and Digital HD in August, very close to the time we also get the new TMNT film in theaters. Here’s a quick preview:

#1 In 1969: One Hit Straight To The Top

Six weeks at Number One is a pretty good accomplishment, especially for a one hit wonder act like Zager & Evans who hit the top in 1969 with In The Year 2525:

There a lot of One Hit Wonder acts who hit the top of the chart in the 60s, 70s and 80s and you’ll hear them all on a One Hit Wonders Weekend on Hit Oldies!

Number Two: Diana And The Girls Don’t Shimmy To The Top

Silk dresses and smooth moves didn’t get the job done  for The Supremes in 1967. REFLECTIONS was not quite #1:
