This Saturday night on Those Were The Days, I will dig out some of the hot hits from this weekend in 1974. You will hear some Top Forty treasures such as: You're Sixteen-Ringo Starr, The Joker-Steve Miller Band, Helen Wheels-Paul McCartney & Wings, Smokin'In The Boys Room-Brownsville Station, and Show And Tell-Al Wilson. It was a wonderful time for popular music and Top Forty radio. It reminds me of Ma and Pa taking little Philip out with them for a Friday night fish fry (it was hard for them to find someone to babysit me!) Mom would save up her quarters and hand them to me one at a time so that I could go play the jukebox (three plays for a quarter). Every other 25 cent piece would go into the pinball machine (I was not a pinball wizard so the money did not last long). Join me for Those Were The Days this Saturday night on WRCO FM 100.9 between 6 p and Midnight. We have been spinning the old tunes since 1986. It has been very rewarding. Last Saturday night a listener requested 'Color My World' by Chicago for her son's 28th birthday. She told me that I played that for her the night her son was born 28 years ago! That really made my night.
Thanks for listening.
