Here at Oldiez 96 we aren't just about playing the classic hits by multi-millionaire artists, but there is plenty of talent flying under the radar right here in Central New York. Many of our local musicians may never see the big time, but they're big to us. Cavallo's, Big Apple Music, Crimmins Auto Sales and all of us at the station would like to showcase local talent by giving them all a chance to play in the Keith James All Star Band!
