Christmas Party Like It's 1982!

Posted by on in Those Were The Days

Hey Rock And Rollers!  This Saturday night on the crazy program we call 'Those Were The Days', we will be spinning back to the year of 1982.  We will play for you some of the top songs of the year.  It was a very good year for music with hits from leftover 70's groups,  MTV hits,  Country, and much more.  It is one of my favorite years for music and I hope you enjoy it.  We will also be playing some of the most requested Rock And Roll Christmas tunes on this weeks show which begins a little after 6:00 on Saturday night.

 

Merry Christmas!

We will rock and roll back to the mid-70's on Those Were The Days this Saturday night.  Enjoy great rock and roll from many artists that are associated with the 70's.  Get your Elevator Shoes on and dance along with the tunes between 6 p and Midnight this week on 100.9.  We will be taking your requests and playing a few of your favorite rockin' Christmas songs.

 

Thanks for all of the great coments on our Vilas Craig and the Garage Bands show that aired this past Saturday night.  It was fun putting it all together.  In case you missed it,  The Shadows Of Knight were voted the top garage band by the readers of Kent Kotal's Forgotten Hits website.  Their song Gloria is a staple  amoung rock and roll greats of the 60s.

 

We will talk with you Saturday night!

Barry Winslow-Snoopy And Those Were The Days

Posted by on in Those Were The Days

On this Saturday nights show, we will return to those younger days when a group of locals could cut a silly song in the garage.  A few days later it might be  playing everywhere in the country.  This was the story of the Royal Guardsmen who hit with Snoopy Vs. The Red Barron and Snoopys Christmas.  Barry Winslow of the group will recap the story of those Snoopy songs.  We will be taking your requests and playing trivia on Those Were The Days this Saturday night.  Join the gang from all around Southwest Wisconsin that will be checking in with their favorite songs.

 

I hope to talk with you Saturday night.

November Of '73 With The Nee

Posted by on in Those Were The Days

This Saturday night on WRCOs' Those Were The Days, we will go back to one of my favorite years of music.  Nineteen Hundred and Seventy-Three was a great year for music.  My all time favorite music year is 1967, however, 1973 is a close second.  There was so much variety of music on the charts and this weekend we will share with you a slice of the Billboard Music Survey.  As you enjoy one last cold turkey sandwich, you will be able to enjoy tunes from the 1950's through the 1980's.  Give me a call during this holiday weekend and request a favorite.  I love it when someone trys to stump me!
