One of my favorite groups in my youth was a band called Off Broadway. They played around the Madison area a few times including opening up for the Beach Boys and other big name acts at the Dane County Coliseum. A while back I talked to Cliff Johnson of Off Broadway and we will share a few of his words this Saturday night on WRCOs' Those Were The Days. Off Broadway made just two albums back in the day. The first was called 'On' and it was in a lot of vinyl and tape collections in 1980. The second album was titled 'Quick Turns' and it was not promoted or distributed well. The song 'Stay In Time' made it to the Billboard Hot 100 in 1980 and it still gets asked for on our show.
Off Broadway was one of the many albums I had on cassette tape so I could blast it as I traveled the back roads in my 1975 Ford Maverick. Here is a list of some of my other favorite tapes...1. Get The Knack-The Knack 2. Double Platinum-Kiss 3. The Best Of Buddy Holly 4. Heaven Tonight-Cheap Trick 5. Abbey Road-The Beatles 6. BTO 2- Bachman Turner Overdrive 7. The Doors 8. K-Tel Records Rock '80 9. Willie Nelson's Greatest Hits 10. The Best Of Bread (just in case I wanted to impress a date).
I hope you will tune it to WRCO FM 100.9 Those Were The Days' this Saturday night between 6:00 p and Midnight because that is where the party will be!
