Summer Of 1977 Memories

Posted by on in Those Were The Days

This Saturday night on WRCOs'  Those Were The Days, I will dig out a few hits from this weekend in 1977.  I remember well a trip to the Starlite 14 Drive In when Undercover Angel by Alan O' Day was number one.  The song was playing over the tiny little window speakers that they used to have.  Even though disco music was in full bloom, there were some great songs on the Billboard Hot 100 survey.  Hot 45 records came from Steve Miller Band,  Fleetwood Mac,  Pablo Cruise,  Heart, Marshall Tucker Band,and Peter Frampton, which made the Summer of 1977 even better.   I wasn't old enough to drive a car on the higway, however, my bike with the cool AM radio mounted on the handle bars was a mode of transportation.  When I wasn't working the hay mow, I was cruising for chicks on my three speed.

Join the party this Saturday night on WRCO FM 100.9 when Those Were The Days lights up the night again.  I will be in the studio to accept your requests for pop radio classics from the fifties through the eighties.  Have fun with trivia time.  I can't wait for Saturday night!



Bobby Rydell on TWTD Saturday Night

Posted by on in Those Were The Days

This Saturday night on WRCO FM 100.9 I will speak with Bobby Rydell about his new book Teen Idol On The Rocks.  It is a great book that is more honest than nearly every biography you will read.   On Those Were The Days we will talk to Bobby about music, Sinatra, Bye Bye Birdie, addiction, and whatever comes up.  He is very open with his personal life as you will hear.  I will be in the studio to take your requests and play trivia during a great American weekend.  Take your radio to your Saturday gathering. Join a couple of teen idols (me and Rydell) on Those Were The Days.   



This Saturday night, WRCO FM 100.9 will turn back the calender to this week in 1967.  We will revive some of the biggest hits from the Summer Of Love during Those Were The Days.  We will also say happy birthday to Carly Simon this Saturday night June 25th.  That is the date that the album Purple Rain by Prince was released.  Many of us remember where we were on June 25th of 2009 when we heard the news that Michael Jackson had died.  Perhaps we will hit the dance floor with a couple of M.J. tunes.  I will be propped up in the studio Saturday night.  Give me a call and request a favorite tune from the fifties through the eighties during Those Were The Days on WRCO FM 100.9 this Saturday night........


Rock On.

This Saturday night on Those Were The Days, we will fly back to some of my favorite June hits (not my wife June).  Radio has always sounded great during the month of June.  I remember school getting out and that meant I could listen to my radio even later at night.  I would record favorite songs from the radio for the ultimate mix tape.  The keys to a good radio mix tape is trying not to get much of the d.j.'s voice and  you must start recording before the vocal of the song.  This weekend we will stop and park for a time in June of 1978 and 1981.  Join me on WRCO FM 100.9 Saturday night for the best of the fifties through the eighties pop radio memories.  We will not be taking your requests this time.  Thank you for listening to the radio.  That keeps me employed!



Save Ferris Saturday Night On WRCO

Posted by on in Those Were The Days

Saturday June 11th will be the exact date that the movie Ferris Bueller's Day Off was released by in 1986.  Saturday night on Those Were The Days, we will pay tribute to the film thirty years later.  It is one of our favorite VHS era movies.  The main characters don't interest me as much as Principle Ed Rooney (Jeffrey Jones),  his secretary Grace (Edie McClurg), and the economics teacher (Ben Stein). In my humble opinion, these 3 make the movie.   We will play a few songs from the movie and ask a trivia question or two.  You can request a favorite song from the fifties through the eighties Saturday night between six and Midnight.  I will be in the studio drinking cans of Ski and playing your songs.  Get the campfire started and tune in 100.9 WRCO FM on Saturday night.
