Back in 1968 I was driving my first wheels. I got a Hot Wheels car set with the Super Charger that would push the cars through and around the track. It never worked like it did on television. The kids in the commercial would laugh with glee as their car went upside down through the loop de loop. My cars had trouble making the corner before they ever got to the upside down portion of the track. My Slinky never walked down more than two stairs in a row. The only reliable toys I owned were my G.I. Joe and my Billy Blastoff action figure. I was playing with all of these toys in the upstairs of the old farm house while great songs from the Spring of 1968 were coming out of the radio speaker. Tunes such as: Lady MaDonna-The Beatles, (Sittin On) The Dock Of The Bay-Otis Redding, Cry Like A Baby-Box Tops, Dance To The Music-Sly & The Family Stone, and many more. This Saturday night during WRCOs' Those Were The Days radio show we will park with the radio tuned to 1968 for a while. I will be in the studio for a time to take your requests from all of the decades and genres that we play from. We will be throwing some trivia questions at you as well. We will talk with members of the Madison, Wisconsin based band known as the Gentlemen. They will be playing a 50th anniversary show at Chief's Tavern on Cottage Grove Road in Madison this Saturday night. Hear some of their memories during our Saturday night Those Were The Days show on WRCO FM 100.9.
