Those Were The Days Flight 1976

Posted by on in Those Were The Days

This Saturday night on Those Were The Days I will be digging out chart classics from this weekend in 1976.  These were big hits as the Fall was coming on strong.  Hear big tunes from the Steve Miller Band,  Wild Cherry,  Earth Wind & Fire, Gordon Lightfoot, and seldom heard songs from Roxy Music and Ringo Starr. We will take time out for Regional Championship High School Volleyball and than close out the second half of the show with your rock and roll requests.  Take the trivia challenge and impress your friends during Those Were the Days on WRCO FM 100.9.  I will put on my P.F. Flyers and my husky sized bell bottom pants along with my Partridge Family t-shirt to host Those Were The Days.  I hope a bunch of our lady listeners can contain themselves when they find out what I will be wearing!



They Came From Canada On TWTD

Posted by on in Those Were The Days

This week on our Saturday night program, we will spin some songs from some of our favorite Canadian artists.  There were so many great songs that came from Canada especially in the late sixties and early seventies.  One of my all time favorite groups The Guess Who led the way with many memorable hits and albums.  Paul Anka broke through in the fifties and many followed from the North.  Gordon Lightfoot, Joni Mitchell, Neil Young, Andy Kim, The Band, Lighthouse, and Anne Murray all brought huge hits to the United States record surveys.  Later harder edged groups such as Loverboy,  April Wine,  Bachman-Turner Overdrive, Rush, Triumph, and Trooper hit the airwaves in the states.  Bryan Adams had a big run of great music starting in the 1980s.  Hear the best of Canada on this weeks Those Were The Days radio show.  I will be back to take your requests and play trivia.  From Six until Midnight Saturday night WRCO FM 100.9 will transport you back to great memories and good times.

Thanks to Lon Arbegust for being our guest last Saturday night.  It was great to hear from a Richland Center man who was actually at Woodstock in 1969.

    The Woodstock Festival has always fascinated me. Thanks for doing a show about it. It is good to hear it from a local point of v

The year of 1967 was a great year for music with a wide array of styles.  It may have been Top Forty radios' finest year.  On WRCO FM 100.9 between 6 and Midnight Saturday night, we will shine our Ford Maverick headlights on that era.  The Box Tops from Memphis were on top of the pop scene with 'The Letter'.  Chicagos' Buckinghams were having one of four top 10 hits that came during the year for the group.  Tommy James was on the radio, Bobby Vee was having a comeback hit,  and Milwaukees' Esquires were in the Top Twenty.  I hope you give me a call to request a song this Saturday night.  Last week you made it tough on me.  I was digging for stuff all night long and I loved it!  Win some food, tickets, and other fun stuff when we play trivia this weekend during Those Were The Days.

The Fall Of 1981 Saturday Night

Posted by on in Those Were The Days

It was the Fall of eighty-one and music was in the air as I lined up at center on the mighty Ithaca Bulldogs Football team.  Perhaps if I would not have had songs like Urgent by Foreigner,  Jessie's Girl from Rick Springfield, or The Breakup Song by The Greg Kihn Band running through my brain, I might have been able to block better for our quarterbacks. Poor Scott Crine,  Randy Nelson, Bob Faga and whoever else played the position.   That was a great time to be 17 going on 18.  My friends and I listened to the new Greg Kihn album,  AC/DCs' Back In Black,  4 from Foreigner,  Hi Infidelity-REO Speedwagon and the Blue Brothers movie soundtrack which had been released the year before.  So much water from the Willow Creek has gone under the bridge at Bush Flat near Ithaca since than.  Many things have changed, however, I still listen to those songs and I still go to Ithaca football games.  Thank you to the folks at Ithaca for inducting me in the school Hall Of Fame last Saturday.  It is something I will always cherish.  Who would have ever believed that the boy who spent more time in the principles office than Mr. Modjeski would some day have a legit reason for being in the hall!  Thanks for your kind words and I hope I can keep on rockin' for a few more years.  I will be back to deliver your favorite requests and play trivia this Saturday night on WRCOs' Those Were The Days from 6 until Midnight.  Join me for the greatest rock and roll and pop radio memories ever!
