It will be great to be back with you this Saturday night on WRCO FM 100.9. The Packers blocked us last week.
The year 2016 has been a rough one for old rock and rollers. We lost Glenn Frey earlier this week and Saturday night we will pay tribute with some of our (and your) favorite Eagle songs. It will be a celebration of the legacy of the music that Glenn leaves behind. One of my earliest memories of the Eagles is when I saw them play on NBCs' The Midnight Special back in 1973. In 1975 I went to Saffells Music Store and bought The Eagles Greatest Hits (1971-1975). This was the album that became the biggest seller of the 70's and 80's. Every song was a hit and there were no filler tunes or new songs to clutter it. I loved Glenn Frey's solo work in the 1980's. 'I Found Somebody' was one of those I remember from the first months that I was exposed to MTV. That is my favorite among his solo releases. Playing country tunes in the early 1990's I recall the Eagles tribute cd that several country artists put together. It brought the groups songs to a new generation and to a new audience.
Tune in 100.9 WRCO FM on Saturday night for more of the best of the fifties, sixties, seventies, and eighties during Those Were The Days between 6 p and Midnight. I will be in the studio to take your requests and to give away some cool trivia prizes.
