I know it is a busy weekend, however, I hope you will tune in 100.9 WRCO FM this Saturday night between 6 and Midnight. You may be a little tired from all of the Christmas get togethers or from taking back gifts that don't fit or work. Those Were The Days will be on so that you can escape to the fifties, sixties, seventies, and eighties. I will be in the studio to take your requests and we will throw you a few trivia questions. We will look at music news from this week and a look back to December of 1965 when the Beatles album 'Rubber Soul' was released for Christmas.
It marked a big change for the Beatles from pop love songs to deeper folk tunes. This was one of the first by any artist that was not just a way to get the radio hit on a long playing record and several cover songs for filler. I did not discover this gem until well after I began my hobby of buying records. Some of the Rubber Soul songs were familiar because they were on the double 'red' album Greatest Hits 1962-1966. Canadian songstress Anne Murray had a hit with a song called You Wont See Me in the Summer of 1974. When I learned it was a Lennon/McCartney song, I had to find the album that it was on. It is easy to see why this album was and is so highly regarded after all of these years. I will spin a few from my Rubber Soul album this Saturday night during Those Were The Days on WRCO FM 100.9. Happy Holidays!
