Spirit Of '76 On Those Were The Days

Posted by on in Those Were The Days

This Saturday night on WRCOs'  Those Were The Days, we will stop and park in 1976.  It is a fun countdown with tunes from artists and groups such as:  Bay City Rollers, Ohio Players, Sweet, Hot Chocolate, and Fleetwood Mac.  That era of music is often overlooked.  I was a Top Forty fan and I am still a fan of the three minute pop song.  I hope to hear from you this Saturday night.  We will ask a few leftover 'Triviathon' Questions.  Your requests will be welcome.  I hope you will join the 'Solid Gold' Dancers and me from six until Midnight on WRCO FM 100.9

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!

TWTD Christmas Party Saturday Night!

Posted by on in Those Were The Days

The Solid Gold Dancers will exchange gifts and I will be the dj Saturday night on WRCO FM 100.9.  Rock and Roll Christmas records will spin and anything else you would like to request during our six hour Those Were The Days radio show.  We will take a look at old music news and salute the new Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame soon to be members.  This was the story breaking the news about the inductees courtesy of Associate Press.

   UNDATED (AP) - The groundbreaking Los Angeles rap act N.W.A. will join a quartet of 1970s era FM radio rockers - Chicago, Cheap Trick, Deep Purple and Steve Miller - as 2016 inductees into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Both Miller and Cheap Trick make it during their first year on the ballots. The induction ceremony for the Cleveland-based hall will be held April 8 in Brooklyn's Barclays Center. HBO will carry highlights later in the spring.

We have certainly played Chicago, Cheap Trick, Deep Purple, and Steve Miller music over the years on Saturday nights.  I hope to hear from you during this weekends show.  I will be in the air chair and the turntables will be turning this weekend.

Back To 1983 With Phil Nee

Posted by on in Those Were The Days

This Saturday night you can travel in the time tunnel back to 1983 with me on WRCOs' Those Were The Days. It was a great time to be listening to the radio and it was back when MTV actually showed videos! Hear some iconic

1980s classics along with our usual fantastic requests from the fifties through the eighties. I will be in the studio to take your requests and we will play trivia. You might even hear a rock and roll Christmas tune on WRCO FM 100.9!

Take Those Were The Days with you during your weekend endeavors. We will have a blast from the past together.

The 45's Of Gary Lewis & The Playboys

Posted by on in Those Were The Days

This Saturday night on WRCOs' Those Were The Days we will remember the records of Gary Lewis & The Playboys.  Hear Gary tell a few stories behind those songs and other facts.  There are people that still don't know that he has a famous father.  Gary and the group enjoyed seven top ten songs between January of 1965 and the Spring of 1966.  I will be back in the studio this Saturday night to take your fifties through the eighties pop radio requests and I will throw some trivia questions at you.  Last weeks program was fun to put together.  It was an all Seventies night inspired by the book 'Ranking The 70's'.  There were a few on that countdown that I admit being tired of when they were popular on the radio.  It seemed fun to hear them again this past weekend.   Give me a call Saturday night and we can talk about it.  You can leave a coment at this site, email me philnee@wrco.com or reach me on your rotary dial telelphone.
