From The Back Of The 45 Case

Posted by on in Those Were The Days

This Saturday night on Those Were The Days I will be in the studio for the live six hour request show.  The last couple of weeks we shared time with local sports.  I had better get rested because I know many have been saving requests!  On the program this weekend I will give you the story behind the song when we bring back some long lost 45's.  Special coments from Bo Donaldson and Austin Roberts will be featured.  They wont be talking about their biggest hits but a couple of songs that are finely crafted forgotten pop hits.  We will be giving you more cowbell this weekend and playing trivia during Those Were The Days on WRCO FM 100.9 from 6 p until Midnight.  The Solid Gold Dancers will be jumping and jiving.  Hopefully Ray Schroeder still has his zip (53581) !

Posted by on in Those Were The Days

This weekend you will be transported back to 1970.  We have some awesome tunes lined up for you on this Saturday nights Those Were The Days. The best of the 50's through the 80's pop radio memories.  Thanks for the great requests last weekend during and after state wrestling finals.  We had a great time playing some welcome home tunes for Riverale, and Weston/Ithaca. 

There will be a few more high school events this weekend.  Join us before and after on WRCO FM 100.9 for fun radio and the best of 1970!

February Chart Hits And Beatle Memories

Posted by on in Those Were The Days

This Saturday night on Those Were The Days I will be digging out some of the big chart hits from the month of February.  The fifties through the eighties rock and roll era had a lot of great hits that helped us get over 'cabin fever'.  That is a tough chore this year during one of the longest and strongest Winters ever!  We will continue with more Beatle memories.  By popular demand, we will replay highlights from the interview with Beatle sister Louise Harrison.  It is great to hear about the madness fifty years ago from a siblings point of view.  Tune in WRCO FM 100.9 this Saturday night for a trip into the golden days of pop music on the radio.  I will be taking your requests when I arrive back from Necedah on WRCOs' pedal helicopter.

Beatles On Sullivan Fifty Years Ago!

Posted by on in Those Were The Days

We have talked about Beatle events from fifty years ago for the last two weeks on Those Were The Days.  This Saturday night we will share a few more moments.  Listeners have been sharing their memories about that black and white night 50th years ago Sunday.  The tv event inspired many young musicians to form a band.  This Sunday night on CBS you can watch a tribute from the Ed Sullivan Theatre which features many new artisits paying tribute as they preform Beatle songs.  Ringo and Paul will even play a few including:  Matchbox,  Boys,  Yellow Submarine, Magical Mystery Tour,  Birthday, Get Back, I Saw Her Standing There,  Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band,  and With A Little Help From My Friends!  This will be better than the Super Bowl for me.  On WRCO FM 100.9 Saturday night (between 6 p and Midnight) you can hear a few Beatles classics and later in the night (when I get back from wrestling broadcasts) we will be taking your rock n' roll requests from the 50's through the 80's.  Get set for trivia questions that are guaranteed to start a few conversations.
