The Biggest Records Of The '70's!

Posted by on in Those Were The Days

This holiday weekend I hope you will have a 70's dance party with WRCO FM 100.9.  I will be counting down the most played songs of the decade during our six hour program.  It is a great mix of the variety of songs that made the 1970's so much fun.  There is disco, pop, country cross-over, ballads, dance classics, bubblegum, and folk all represented.  The show is inspired by a new book called 'Ranking The 70's' by Dann Isbell and Bill Carroll.  It is a must have for all 70's children and chart fanatics.  It would make a great Christmas gift.  Find out what the number one song of the 70's is!  This Saturday night we will play songs that were over played on radio back in the day.  Many of them don't get played that much in 2015.  We will hang the disco ball and get our groove on Saturday night with the Solid Gold Dancers during Those Were The Days on WRCO FM 100.9.   I will not be taking your requests this week.  We will return in December with four Saturday nights of requests and trivia.  Happy Thanksgiving weekend.



November 1969 Rock And Roll Hits

Posted by on in Those Were The Days

This Saturday night on WRCOs' Those Were The Days radio program, we will be playing a stack of 45's that were on the charts in November of 1969.  During that time I was taking week day bus rides to Neptune school.  It was a rural school with no phone.  One day a student got hurt and the teacher had to send a kindergarten student down the state highway to use the phone at the nearest farm house.  Can you imagine that happening today?  Songs that we heard on the buses AM radio that November included:  Sugar Sugar-The Archies, Eli's Coming-Three Dog Night, Down On the Corner-C.C.R., Wedding Bell Blues-5th Dimension, and Suspicious Minds-Elvis.  These songs were wrapping up one of the most creative decades of the century.  This Saturday night I will be in the studio to answer the 'old time rock and roll support line'.  If you have a song that you haven't heard on the radio since way back when, please give me a call.  Save a few brain cells for trivia.  We will have a question each hour during Those Were The Days on WRCO FM 100.9 this Saturday night.




The Great Record Albums Of 1975

Posted by on in Those Were The Days

This Saturday night on WRCO FM 100.9 we will crank out more great music from the fifties through the eighties.  I will be in the studio for 6 hours of requests and trivia.  We will play a few of my favorite tracks from some great record albums that were released in 1975.  While still just a 'wee-Nee', I was a record buying phenom!  I was starting to make the conversion from buying single hits on 45 r.p.m. records to purchasing complete albums.  I had to decide whether I wanted the vinyl copy or the cassette version.  Some of the favorite albums blasting out of my speakers were..A Night At The Opera by Queen.  The Marx brothers were my heroes and here was this English band naming its albums after the brothers Marx movies!  The first time I heard Bohemian Rhapsody, it floored me...Born To Run-Bruce Springsteen.  I heard the title cut on WRCO in the Fall of 1975.  The opening drum beat is still exciting forty years later.  I wanted the Wilson sisters to baby sit me and sing Crazy On You and Magic Man.  The album Dreamboat Annie was a 1975 purchase for me at Shultz Brothers Variety Store in Richland Center.  The Kiss album Alive came out in 1975.  A friend of mine loaned me his copy and I became an instant fan.  Many of my music friends have made fun of me for liking Kiss over the years.  While their lyrics may not have been as deep as Bob Dylan's, the music was fun.  I still maintain that Alive is one of the best 'live' rock and roll albums ever!  Other great albums from '75 include:  The Eagles-One Of These Nights,  Paul Simon-Still Crazy After All These Years,  Fandango!-ZZ Top,  Fleetwood Mac-Fleetwood Mac, and Venus And Mars-Paul McCartney & Wings. 

Join me for some of the greatest music ever cut on vinyl this Saturday night during WRCOs' Those Were The Days.



This Saturday night on WRCO FM 100.9 our old rock n' roll radio show (Those Were The Days) will highlight hits from November of 1973.  It may have been one of Top Forty radios' last hurrahs.  There was so much good music blasting out of those 3 inch radio speakers!  We will stop and park in that moment for a time.  The show will begin with a guest disc jockey.  Al Hushka has been a long time staff member of WRCO.  You have heard his voice for years reading advertisments during our programs. As of last week, he is now semi-retired.  Al began his radio career with stints in Viroqua and Prairie Du Chien.  Hear 'Cousin Al' remember his days behind the mic when many of the most memorable Those Were The Days' tunes were brand new.  Join Al and me for memories of radio the way it used to be.  The request line will be open between 9 pm and Midnight.  We will also throw a few trivia questions your way.  Since I don't text or tweet, I hope you will call me Saturday night during Those Were The Days. 




Do The Monster Mash With TWTD!

Posted by on in Those Were The Days

Halloween has not been the same night as our Those Were The Days radio show very often during the past twenty-nine years.  That means we will have a real bash this Saturday night.  I will be in the studio to hand out song treats and a few tricks.  There are so many records from the fifties through the eighties that have a haunting theme.  We will be spinning a few of those.  I am sure that the Witch Doctor and the Purple People Eater will stop.  We will do the Monster Mash with Bobby 'Boris' Pickett.  The song originally hit in 1962 and made it back to the charts in the late sixties.  It made another comeback to pop radio in the Summer of 1973 and it was a top ten hit.  Request a song with a Halloween theme or ask for anything that made the Billboard pop charts during the first thirty-five years of rock and roll.  Play trivia and join the Solid Gold dancers dance team this Saturday night.  Those Were The Days is heard every Saturday night between 6 pm and Midnight.



Life Songs On Those Were The Days

Posted by on in Those Were The Days

During the fifties through the eighties there were many songs with titles about life and living.  We will play a few of those this Saturday night during WRCOs' Those Were The Days.  Songs will include: My Life by the Beatles,  What Is Life from George Harrison, Billy Joel's My Life, Walk Of Life-Dire Straits and many more.  We will flash back to this weekend in 1977 and the request line will be open during the second half of the show.  Celebrate life and living with good friends and WRCO FM 100.9 this Saturday night.




The Fall Of '66 Those Were The Days!

Posted by on in Those Were The Days

The Fall of 1966 was one of the greatest times for pop culture.  We still recall vividly the toys, shows, movies, and music after all these years.  Star Trek and The Monkees debuted on tv that Fall.  The Monkees were near the top of the charts with 'Last Train To Clarksville', Tommy Roe was singing ' Hooray For Hazel',  and Neil Diamond was having one his first successes with ' Cherry, Cherry' .  The 1966 Christmas catalog was coming out and young Philip was drooling over cool toys including:  Mr. Potato Head,  Frosty the Sno-Cone Maker, Hoppity Hooper Game, Super Ball, and Batman bath tub toys.  My friend Hal Lifson even wrote a book some years ago about all the fun stuff from 1966.  I hope you will tune in for another Those Were The Days radio show on WRCO FM 100.9 this Saturday night.  Your requests will be welcome and we will have a trivia question each hour that will make you stop and think.  Become a Solid Gold dancer this Saturday night.  Keep that transistor radio close to your ear and hear some fun stuff!



This Week In 1971 And John Lennon's 75th

Posted by on in Those Were The Days

This Saturday night Those Were The Days on WRCO FM 100.9 will take you back to the way it used to be.  Have fun listening to the radio and enjoy the power of music that can lead you back to who you were with, what you were doing, and what kind of stereo system you had in your car.  On Saturday nights show we will stop and park for a time in 1971.  The Fall of '71 had some great hits including: Maggie May-Rod Stewart, I Just Want To Celebrate-Rare Earth, Do You Know What I Mean?-Lee Michaels, Sweet City Woman-The Stampeders, and more.  I was saving my money made from my farm work and the quarter my Grandpa gave me every Sunday after Church.  These funds would eventually be placed  in my plastic coin holder for a trip to Saffells in Richland Center.  I would soon join the record buying public which I am still a part of forty-four years later. Enjoy the Fall hits from 1971 and request a song from the fifites through the eighties.  I will be in the studio and there will be a pop culture quiz.  You could 'Go To The Head Of The Class' and win a prize.

John Lennon would have been seventy-five on October ninth.  I plan to spin a few in honor of the legendary former Beatle.  I have been a Beatle fan since I was a wee-Nee.  In the Fall of 1980 I remember buying the single (Just Like) Starting Over.  It sounded so good on the radio and it was so great that John Lennon was back on the radio with a hit after several years.  That is what made his death even more sad in December of that year.  He potentially could have given us so much more music.  I was in high school at the time and young people my age were suddenly listening to his music and all the Beatles catalog of songs even more than they were before. 

It will be a busy Saturday night when we feature the Fall of 1971,  some John Lennon songs, and your requests during Those Were The Days.



Little Anthony On WRCO Saturday Night

Posted by on in Those Were The Days

I have had the chance to interview hundreds of music makers and tv stars during my twenty-nine years as host of Those Were The Days on WRCO.  This Saturday night my special guest will be making his first appearance.  Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame member Little Anthony will talk about his book 'Little Anthony: My Journey, My Destiny'. He has a new album coming out which features a duet with George Benson.  Anthony will tell a few stories about his sixty year career and the night of his induction when a Rolling Stone bowed to him.  I will be answering as many phone calls as I can this Saturday night during our six hour Those Were The Days radio show.  Request a song, play triva, and enjoy the groovy sounds you hear on WRCO FM 100.9.  Keep the radio on as you travel through Southwest Wisconsin this weekend enjoying the many festivities.  It should be another beautiful time.  Lets have some fun!



This Saturday night we will feature six hours of great music from the fifties through the eighties on Those Were The Days.  One of our G.R.A.C.E. bidders will be a guest d.j.  Join Jeff Peper when he plays some of his favorite pop radio memories.  It is the second time for Jeff to join us on the air thanks to his families generous bids during our radio  benefit auctions for cancer patients.  It is always fun for me to see the playlists that guest d.j.'s come up with.  Many times there are songs that I have not thought of for a long time.  Jeff does a great job featuring tunes from the different decades and genres that we normally play on Saturday night.  We have two other hours of guest d.j.s, however, they will not be able to make it this week.  They will do their guest shots later on this year.  Later this Saturday night we will say hello to some favorites from this weekend in 1980.  We will visit the 1985 class reunion and hang out for a time during a memorable music Fall of 1972.  We have a full night of Those Were The Days music on WRCO FM 100.9 this Saturday night.  We will not be taking your requests this weekend.  Hold on to those until next Saturday night.  We have more live shows in October.  This weekend I will be making an appearance at the Ithaca School fair and at Ms. Junes reunion.  Thanks for your loyal listening.



The Looking Glass On Those Were The Days

Posted by on in Those Were The Days

This Saturday night on Those Were The Days we will give you the story behind my favorite 'two hit wonder' group.  The Looking Glass had two memorable hits.  The first hit the radio in 1972.  Brandy (You're A  Fine Girl) was all over the radio during that time and it is still played today.  I also remember it being the first song on my favorite K-Tel album (Believe In Music) that came out that year.  The groups second Top Forty hit debuted on WLS radio in Chicago September 15th of 1973.  It was called Jimmy Loves Mary-Anne.  This song has been lost in the shuffle and has not played as much as Brandy over the years.  While Brandy hit number one in the Summer of 1972, Jimmy Loves Mary-Anne only climbed to number thirty-three in the Fall of 1973 on the Billboard Top 100 chart.  According to Ron Smith's book Chicago Top 40 Charts 1970-1979,  Brandy was number one in Chicago and Jimmy was number two.  I was listening to WISM in Madison at the time as well.  I heard Jimmy as much or more than I did Brandy the previous year.  This Saturday night I will share the stories behind those two hits with Elliot Lurie who was the leader of the group The Looking Glass.  Did you know?---after his hit making days Elliot Lurie went on to work on movie and tv soundtracks.  He wrote the theme song to the Disney channel classic show Lizzie McGuire.  Join me Saturday night for another edition of Those Were The Days.  I will be in the studio to take your requests of music from the fifties through the eighties and give you more cowbell.  Win a prize and impress your friends Saturday night between 6 and Midnight.



My Mix Tape From The Fall Of 1984

Posted by on in Those Were The Days

This Saturday night on WRCO FM 100.9 we will travel back to this weekend in 1984 during our six hour Those Were The Days radio program.   I will be taking your requests from the fifties through the eighties and perhaps you can give me a call and request a song.  Our 'old school' radio program will provide trivia and great memories.  Back in the Fall of '84 I was courting the lovely Ms. June and I was a big shot mobile d.j.  It was big time for fifty bucks a night on a good evening and double that New Years eve at Doug's Pub in Cazenovia. There were many softball tournaments, wedding dances, high school record hops, and class reunions where the Aubrey Sound provided the entertainment.   Those were fun nights playing vinyl records and cassette tapes.  I would buy the latest forty-five hits at the Music Shop in Richland Center.  Big hits at Doug's Pub this weekend in '84 included:  Cover Me-Bruce Springsteen, Let's Go Crazy-Prince, She Bop-Cyndi Lauper, Rock Me Tonite-Billy Squier, and When You Close Your Eyes-Night Ranger.  When things really got rocking, I would have to put a piece of insulation under the turntables so they did not skip.  Hopefully the 'solid gold' dancers don't make my turntable skip this Saturday night when they starting jumping around the WRCO studios!



Those Were The Days Music From 1965

Posted by on in Those Were The Days

Hey Rock n' Rollers!  It will be a real treat to be back on the air Saturday night with another Those Were The Days radio program.  Your requests will help program the show and we will stop the car and park in 1965 with the radio on (don't wear out your battery).  Some of the greatest pop radio hits came out fifty years ago.  I will reach in the archives for a few pieces of interviews with artists that had big chart hits all of those years ago.  We will dial back to an interview with the late Mike Smith who was the lead singer of the Dave Clark Five.  That group was enjoying a top ten hit with 'Catch Us If You Can'.  We will play trivia and have a party with some of the best tunes of all time on WRCO FM 100.9 this Saturday night. 

Did you know?  WRCO went on the air in 1949.  The broadcasts were heard on WRCO AM 1450 until 1965 when WRCO FM 100.9 signed on the air.  Most of the programming was simulcast over the two stations until the last 15 years or so.  In 1965 most people did not even have a radio with an FM band!  I hope you will find our Those Were The Days program Saturday night during your holiday weekend.



No TWTD This Saturday Night

Posted by on in Those Were The Days

The Green Bay Packers will play a third exhibition game of the preseason on Saturday night in Green Bay.  Join WRCO FM 100.9 for the action.  As the result of this network broadcast,  Those Were The Days will not be heard.  I will be organizing my cds and records in preperation for our September shows.  Among the highlights next month will be the appearance of our Walk With Grace guest d.j.s on Saturday night September 26th.  October 12th is the date when we first went on the air with Those Were The Days back in 1986.  That means that the show will turn 29 in October!  It is still a very rewarding program to host thanks to all of you out there in radio land.  Last weeks requests were awesome.  Just about every week we play at least one song that has never been played on the show.  I can't wait to see what you request during our next Those Were The Days radio get together on Saturday night September 5th.



Back To School In August 1973

Posted by on in Those Were The Days

It was August of 1973.  My parents were smiling as I got on the school bus for the new school year. It was tough to walk while wearing my new school pants. The bus driver nearly had to pull me up the steps because I couldn't bend my legs!  Some great songs were playing on the radio as I went back to school late that Summer.  Some favorites included:  Brother Louie-Stories, Live And Let Die-Wings, Get Down-Gilbert O'Sullivan, We're An American Band-Grand Funk,  Shambala-Three Dog Night, and Diamond Girl-Seals & Crofts.  The bus radio sounded good except when it went by a farm with a Super 98 electric fencer.  You could hear the snap of the fencer on the AM radio while the bus was rolling along.  Once in a while some Junior High girls would bring their portable 45 battery powered turntable and they would try to play some of the top hits of the day.  Everything was fine until the bus hit a pot hole or drove into a bumpy driveway and the record would skip.  Hopefully none of my records skip this Saturday night when I spin the best radio hits ever on WRCO FM 100.9.  I will be in the studio to answer all of your requests during our six hour Those Were The Days radio show.

The First Hot 100 Singles Chart In 1958

Posted by on in Those Were The Days

In August 1958, Billboard launched the Hot One Hundred singles chart, which contained sales and airplay stats.  Saturday night on WRCO FM 100.9 we will feature a few highlights from that survey.  Ricky Nelson, Elvis Presley, Bobby Darin, and The Coasters were having large hit records.  One of my favorite 45s, When by the Kalin Twins, was number five on that first chart.  That record was at our house when I was growing up.  It was a jukebox throwaway from my Uncle Ed's supper club and it was probably already worn out when we added it to the family record collection.  The flip side (3 O'clock Thrill) is a good b side slice of fifties life.  I will be in the studio this Saturday night to take your calls and I look forward to chatting with each person that calls our Those Were The Days solid gold line.  You can always drop me a line This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and request a song or make a suggestion for a future show.  I hope you enjoyed my favorite 45's show last Saturday night.  It took a lot of effort to narrow the list to the ones we played!   



My Favorite Rock and Roll 45s

Posted by on in Those Were The Days

This Saturday night I will stack up all of my favorite 45s and let them drop down and be played during our six hour Those Were The Days radio show.  This is a project I have been working on for a while.  I started with nearly five hundred songs on my list.  We do play a few album cuts on Saturday nights, however, I limited the picks to single releases.  Starting in late 1971 my first 45 was purchased (Chi-Lites- "Have You Seen Her") and this (hobby, passion, sickness) continues today.  The last time I counted down my favorites was over twenty-five years ago.  The list has changed a great deal.  There are songs that I have heard more than others and as a result have burned out on them.  There are a great deal that are on both lists and I will always want to hear them.  My first goal was to rank them, but I quickly realized how difficult that is.  My last stack of the night is the only one that I have numbered.  These are the ones that still stop me in my tracks.  The list of faves includes many genres.  There are many tunes that rock and roll historians would pat me on the back for choosing, there are other songs that they would roll their eyes and slap me for.  Most of them don't appreciate teen idols and pop song harmonies like me.  If you are listening to Those Were The Days this Saturday with a younger person, you may have to explain to them what a 45 is.  I had a youngster ask me if it was a gun!   We will not be taking your requests this Saturday night.  Save those for next weekend.  I really do appreciate it when you call.  

Thanks to our two top bidders in the recent G.R.A.C.E. radio auction.  Their bids totaled nearly 700 dollars for the annual charity event.  They will be playing an hour of their favorites coming up in September.  We will have more details on that later.  



August Of 1981 With Mr. Aubrey Corners

Posted by on in Those Were The Days

The date was August first of 1981.  A soon to be Senior in high school was counting down the days until football practice.  He was unloading hay and dreaming about a new cable tv station he had just heard about.  He would not see MTV for another year until he left the farm.  That young pimple faced boy was me (of course).  

This Saturday night on Those Were The Days we will transfer back to the Billboard hot hits from August of 1981.  There were songs on the radio from Hall and Oates, Billy Squier, REO Speedwagon,  Journey,  Pat Benatar, Rick Springfield, and many more. These were the songs that were playing as I patroled Aubrey Corners in my '75 Ford Maverick.  Those Were The Days this Saturday night will again bring back all of your requests from the fifties through the eighties.  I hope you will join me between 6 p and Midnight.



Phil's Faves-Bachman Turner Overdrive

Posted by on in Those Were The Days

This Saturday night on WRCO FM 100.9 I will be spinning all of your favorite fifties, sixties, seventies, and eighties classics during our six hour Those Were The Days radio show.  We had another fun night last Saturday night.  After a slow start, the requests came in at a rapid pace.  Here is a requesting tip.  If you request a fast short song, we may have a chance to play it sooner.  People want to have a party on Saturday night and it is tough to play a bunch of slower ballads in a row.  Songs like American Pie which clocks in at over eight minutes, Stairway To Heaven at over seven and a 1/2 minutes, and many album cuts from the seventies take a large chunk of our airtime.  I can play three two to three minute songs in the time it takes me to play one long song.  It is not that I don't like those songs and wont play them, however, it takes longer to work them into a request segment. 

This Saturday night I will spin a few from B.T.O.  I have always felt that Randy Bachman was amazing.  His songs with the Guess Who are among the groups best.  Bachman Turner Overdrive picked up the pace during a time when slow ballads and disco were starting to take over the Top Forty.  B.T.O. II is still one of my favorite all time albums. The big hits Takin'Care Of Business and Let It Ride came from that 1973 release.  I always have enjoyed other tracks such as:  Tramp, Give It Time and I Don't Have To Hide.    Hear a few stories behind the songs with Randy Bachman on WRCO FM 100.9 Saturday night.  I will be collecting your requests and playing trivia on this weeks Those Were The Days.
