The official Blog of WRCO AM FM Radio!
The release of the album Sports by Huey Lewis & The News in the Fall of 1983 brought good rock and roll back to the charts. It was nice to hear a saxophone on Top 40 radio again. Five songs from the album made the Billboard Top 100 and all 9 got radio play. Hear a few of those tunes on this Saturday nights edition of Those Were The Days on WRCO FM 100.9. Here is a track listing for the classic Huey Lewis album that many had on cassette, album, 45's, and have now digitally downloaded.

The Heart Of Rock & Roll Walking On A Thin Line
Heart and Soul Finally Found A Home

We will be taking your requests this Saturday night during our 6 hour music of the 50's through the 80's get together. While many stations have forgotten about the tunes from the 50's thru 1963 (pre-Beatles), we still get requests for them and are glad to play them. Win some cool prizes this weekend! Try your luck when we play trivia on WRCO FM 100.9.
Those Were The Days!
I wonder how many times Happy Together has been used in a TV show or commerical.
Yes, that is exactly how it went for me too.
I bought Battle Of New Orleans by Johnny Horton. I still have it somewhere.
