He may be the only artist that has been able to claim that he was friends with Buddy Holly, Elvis, and Frank Sinatra. Trini Lopez will be my guest on the Saturday night show Those Were The Days. I remember hearing Mr. Lopez's records on the radio when I was just a wee nee. His first hit came in 1963 with 'If I Had A Hammer'. He did a killer version of the song 'Kansas City' later that year. His hard work from humble beginnings paid off when Buddy Holly helped him in Texas, later he was on Frank Sinatra's Reprise record label, and appeared in the classic movie The Dirty Dozen. He was a fellow Vegas performer with Elvis. He could have retired years ago, however, he recently put out his sixty-fifth album! I have had the chance to interview hundreds over the past 28 plus years of doing the program. Trini Lopez is a first time guest on Those Were The Days. Join me for pop radio memories from the fifties, sixties, seventies, and eighties this Saturday night between Six and Midnight. I will be taking your requests and will be playing trivia. I hope to hear from you!
