This Saturday night Those Were The Days on WRCO FM 100.9 will take you back to the way it used to be. Have fun listening to the radio and enjoy the power of music that can lead you back to who you were with, what you were doing, and what kind of stereo system you had in your car. On Saturday nights show we will stop and park for a time in 1971. The Fall of '71 had some great hits including: Maggie May-Rod Stewart, I Just Want To Celebrate-Rare Earth, Do You Know What I Mean?-Lee Michaels, Sweet City Woman-The Stampeders, and more. I was saving my money made from my farm work and the quarter my Grandpa gave me every Sunday after Church. These funds would eventually be placed in my plastic coin holder for a trip to Saffells in Richland Center. I would soon join the record buying public which I am still a part of forty-four years later. Enjoy the Fall hits from 1971 and request a song from the fifites through the eighties. I will be in the studio and there will be a pop culture quiz. You could 'Go To The Head Of The Class' and win a prize.
John Lennon would have been seventy-five on October ninth. I plan to spin a few in honor of the legendary former Beatle. I have been a Beatle fan since I was a wee-Nee. In the Fall of 1980 I remember buying the single (Just Like) Starting Over. It sounded so good on the radio and it was so great that John Lennon was back on the radio with a hit after several years. That is what made his death even more sad in December of that year. He potentially could have given us so much more music. I was in high school at the time and young people my age were suddenly listening to his music and all the Beatles catalog of songs even more than they were before.
It will be a busy Saturday night when we feature the Fall of 1971, some John Lennon songs, and your requests during Those Were The Days.
