No Those Were The Days. Go Pack Go!!!

Posted by on in Those Were The Days

Since the Packers did not get the second seed in the NFL playoffs, they have to play this weekend and the FOX network has the rematch with the Vikings slated for Saturday night at 7 pm.  This added insult to injury for me this week.  Not only is it a chilly week at my house after the Bears did not make the playoffs (my wife and kids are die hard Bear fans!), but I was looking forward to sharing with you a few of my Christmas presents on Those Were The Days. The Packers will be heard this Saturday night on WRCO FM 100.9.  If they are going to take the place of my show, they had better win!  Go Pack Go!

Say Goodbye To 1972

Posted by on in Those Were The Days

On this Saturday nights Those Were The Days radio program, we will be spinning back to the year end countdown from 1972!  There were many great hits during that year in popular music.  Some that we still play often and some other gems that have slipped through the cracks over the years.  Hear some of our '72 memories on this weekends show between 6 pm and Midnight on Saturday night.  The top charting artists according to Billboard magazine were: 1. Al Green 2. Nilsson 3.  Donny Osmond 4.  The Stylistics  5. James Brown 6.  Michael Jackson  7.  Bread  8.  Gilbert O' Sullivan 9.  Carpenters  10.  America.

 

The request line will be open. Feel free to request a great song from the 50's through the 80's.  The trivia quiz will give you a chance to have some fun and win a prize.

 

I will talk to you Saturday night.

Christmas Party Like It's 1982!

Posted by on in Those Were The Days

Hey Rock And Rollers!  This Saturday night on the crazy program we call 'Those Were The Days', we will be spinning back to the year of 1982.  We will play for you some of the top songs of the year.  It was a very good year for music with hits from leftover 70's groups,  MTV hits,  Country, and much more.  It is one of my favorite years for music and I hope you enjoy it.  We will also be playing some of the most requested Rock And Roll Christmas tunes on this weeks show which begins a little after 6:00 on Saturday night.

 

Merry Christmas!

We will rock and roll back to the mid-70's on Those Were The Days this Saturday night.  Enjoy great rock and roll from many artists that are associated with the 70's.  Get your Elevator Shoes on and dance along with the tunes between 6 p and Midnight this week on 100.9.  We will be taking your requests and playing a few of your favorite rockin' Christmas songs.

 

Thanks for all of the great coments on our Vilas Craig and the Garage Bands show that aired this past Saturday night.  It was fun putting it all together.  In case you missed it,  The Shadows Of Knight were voted the top garage band by the readers of Kent Kotal's Forgotten Hits website.  Their song Gloria is a staple  amoung rock and roll greats of the 60s.

 

We will talk with you Saturday night!
