The release of the album Sports by Huey Lewis & The News in the Fall of 1983 brought good rock and roll back to the charts. It was nice to hear a saxophone on Top 40 radio again. Five songs from the album made the Billboard Top 100 and all 9 got radio play. Hear a few of those tunes on this Saturday nights edition of Those Were The Days on WRCO FM 100.9. Here is a track listing for the classic Huey Lewis album that many had on cassette, album, 45's, and have now digitally downloaded.

We will be taking your requests this Saturday night during our 6 hour music of the 50's through the 80's get together.

Those Were The Days!
Vicki Lawrence will be my special guest this Saturday night! She will be talking about the release of Seasons 1 and 2 of Mama's Family on DVD and memories of the Carol Burnett Show. Saturday nights were family nights around our old Curtis Mathes TV set. Watching all of the CBS programs with our favorite at 9 pm the Carol Burnett Show. I could relate to 'The Family' sketch especially when they played board games. Since Those Were The Days is a music show, I will ask Vicki about her number one hit "The Night The Lights Went Out In Georgia" which topped the charts in 1973.
I hope that you will request a song and play trivia with us this Saturday night from 6 pm until Midnight on WRCO FM 100.9. You could be the winner of a copy of season 2 of Mama's Family! We will again dig out those old pop radio memories from the 50's through the 80's.
