Labor Songs This Weekend On TWTD

Posted by on in Those Were The Days

Hear songs about the working person and the jobs they do during this Saturday nights Those Were The Days.  It will be a great soundtrack to go along with your weekend cookout, get together, and campfire!  The best of the 50's through the 80's.  We are always adding songs to the playlist.  On the rare occasion that you request a song that we do not have, I go on a mission to find it for a future show.  I will be doing more record digging this week.  Tune in 100.9 FM this Saturday night between 6 and Midnight.

Dynamic Duos On Those Were The Days

Posted by on in Those Were The Days

This Saturday night on Those Were The Days we will feature favorite music from some of the best duos of all time.  The Everly Brothers harmony influenced many groups that have followed and were a direct influence on Simon and Garfunkel a decade later.  The Righteous Brothers, Jan and Dean, and Sonny & Cher had many hits in the 60s.  As pointed out with a trivia question a few weeks ago,  Hall and Oates were the most successful duo of the rock and roll era in terms of chart life and records sold.  A duo known as the Carpenters had great success in the 1970s.  Who can ever forget the great talent of Phil and Ron.  That was some singing that you just could never forget..wait a minute...I must have dreamed that.  Join us for Dynamic Duos this weekend on WRCO FM 100.9.

 

It will be great to open up my record cases Saturday night after a week off.  The Packers played well, so we will forgive them for blocking us out last weekend.  Give me a call and request a favorite Saturday night between 6 p and Midnight.  Listen for the 'Magic Cowbell' and win a prize this weekend.

TWTD On Vacation!

Posted by on in Those Were The Days

 This Saturday night on WRCO FM 100.9, its Green Bay Packer preseason football.  It will be the Packers second exhibition game and all of us fans hope they have a better showing than the first game!  Those Were The Days will not be heard this Saturday night.  I hope to hear from you on August 24th when we return from break.

 

The Nee family vacation continues.  We have had a great time.  Hanging out back stage at the Grand Ole Opry was a once in a lifetime opportunity.  I have been digging for more old records and actually met Mike Wolfe from American Pickers!  I picked up the new release Elvis At Stax cd set.  He recorded 3 great albums in the 70's at the legendary studio and I have been jamming to them this week. 

 

Thanks for all of the great requests last Saturday night.  I think it was one of the best shows this Summer,

August Of 1979 On TWTD

Posted by on in Those Were The Days

This weekend I look forward to spinning our way back to August of 1979.  We will take the 45 Record Changer Time Machine back to the second weekend in August.  There we will find a soon to be sophomore in high school by the name of Phil Nee.  His mom has just bought him new school pants at the Richland Outlet and he has all of these wonderful radio hits in his head.  Songs such as: Don't Bring Me Down by E.L.O., One Way Or Another-Blondie, Let's Go-The Cars,  Bad Case Of Loving You-Robert Palmer,  Lovin Touchin Squeezin-Journey and I Was Made For Loving You by Kiss.  When the hay is made for the day and before milking starts, young Phil might bum a ride with his friend Tom or Larry to the local Dog n' Suds and have one of those awesome coney dogs.  There are some pretty car hops working there.  I am sure they are impressed by the young farm boy!

 

Join the fun Saturday night on WRCO FM 100.9 when we go back to 1979 and take your requests.  We will play our usual trivia games.  From 6 p until Midnight Saturday night.

    You and I are about the same age. I loved Dog and Suds Coney Dogs as well. They were wonderful! I really like late 70's music.

An Hour Of TWTD Brings $750 !!!!!

Posted by on in Those Were The Days

It was a record setting Walk With Grace radio auction.  Thanks to a very generous bidder that bid $750 for the right to choose an hour worth of songs during a future Those Were The Days Saturday night show.  They will choose their favorites from the 50's thru the 80's and I will spin them.  It is very rewarding to know that someone would give that much money to the cause.

 

If you are interested in getting the chance to program one hour of the Saturday night oldies program, come out to Krouskop park on Friday night August 9th.  There will be a silent auction which will also benefit Greater Richland Area Cancer Elimination.  You can bid on your chance to be a Saturday night Program Director! There will be many other items and services to bid on at the park that night.  I hope to see you at this years Walk With Grace!
