I have really enjoyed all of the great Saturday night requests recently.  There has been a great variety of music from all eras.  Thanks for the thoughtful dedications.  It is always fun when I get asked to play a song that has never been played on the show.  This seems to happen every week.  Join us for more Those Were The Days on WRCO FM 100.9 from 6:00 p - Midnight on Saturday night.

Guest Night For GRACE

Posted by on in Those Were The Days

This week on Those Were The Days we will have many features.  Hear some of the top songs from this weekend in 1972 and 1978.  Two of my children will take a crack at showing up the Old Man when they dj an hour of the show between 9 p and 10 p.

Earlier this Summer 2 listeners stepped up to the plate and bid big money for the chance to program an hours worth of their favorite songs.  This Saturday night they get what they payed for.   From 7:00 o' clock until 8 hear the songs chosen by 'Team Marlene'.  Marlene Tilsner has a great lineup of special dedications to her family and friends.  From 8 p until 9 p  join us for WPEP courtesy of WRCO.  Jeff Peper was the winning bidder and will unveil some of his favorites for family and friends.

It will be a fun night of great music from the 50's through the 80's on Those Were The Days Saturday night!

Labor Day Weekend 1967 And Your Requests

Posted by on in Those Were The Days

The year of 1967 has always been a favorite music year for me.  This week on Those Were The Days we will play a few of those AM radio classics from the last few weeks of the Summer Of Love.   The song 'Light My Fire' by the Doors had recently hit number one and the group would make a memorable appearance on the Ed Sullivan show in the fall of 1967.  Bobby Vee was having a comeback hit with 'Come Back When You Grow Up',  The Beatles were proclaiming "All You Need Is Love",  and the Monkees were singing about a 'Pleasant Valley Sunday' during the first weekend of September in 1967.  Another reason that I am so fond of 1967 is that my wife June was born that year, however, don't tell her I told you so.  The song 'Brown Eyed Girl' by Van Morrison has always reminded me of her.  That was a big radio song this weekend 45 years ago.

 

On Those Were The Days this Saturday night you can enjoy 6 hours of great radio memories.  Call us with your requests, play trivia, and win a prize donated by one of our sponsors.

A Rick Nelson Profile And Your Requests

Posted by on in Those Were The Days

On Those Were The Days this week, I will feature exerpts of an interview I recorded this week with Sheree Homer.  Sheree has written a book called Rick Nelson, Rock 'n'Roll Pioneer.  Sheree will give her thoughts on why she feels that Rick Nelson is over looked when people talk about the early days of rock and roll.  Hear some great tracks from a legendary artitst that began on his parents tv show at 8 years old.  He went from teen idol to adult superstar and became one of the first to blend Country music with Rock And Roll.

 

I hope to talk with you Saturday night when you request a song.  It is always great to talk music, movies, tv, and other stuff from the 50's through the 80's.  Those Were The Days can be heard from 6:00 p until Midnight on Saturday nights on WRCO FM 100.9.
