November Of '73 With The Nee

Posted by on in Those Were The Days

This Saturday night on WRCOs' Those Were The Days, we will go back to one of my favorite years of music.  Nineteen Hundred and Seventy-Three was a great year for music.  My all time favorite music year is 1967, however, 1973 is a close second.  There was so much variety of music on the charts and this weekend we will share with you a slice of the Billboard Music Survey.  As you enjoy one last cold turkey sandwich, you will be able to enjoy tunes from the 1950's through the 1980's.  Give me a call during this holiday weekend and request a favorite.  I love it when someone trys to stump me!

Those Were The Days

100.9 FM

 

Gerrry Marsden And Great Tunes

Posted by on in Those Were The Days

This week on WRCOs' Those Were The Days we will feature a few of the hits of Gerry And The Pacemakers.  They were solid hit makers for a couple of years in the 60's and were managed by Beatles manager Brian Epstein.  They are known best for a few ballads, however, they could play some rockers.  The solid gold request line will be wide open for 6 hours worth of requests and the 'Magic Cow Bell' will ring to signal trivia time this Saturday night.  I hope that you will join the party on WRCO Fm 100.9.

What's In Store? 1974!

Posted by on in Those Were The Days

Hey Rock And Rollers!  I hope that you will tune in for some of the big hits of 1974 on this Saturday nights Those Were The Days.  Hear behind the scenes stories about songs from Neil Sedaka,  the Raspberries,  and Bachman Turner Overdrive.  It was a great time for pop radio.  I remember taping songs off the radio.  It was tough to start taping when the dj stopped talking and before the singing began.  I still have a few of those tapes today.  It is true that I collect alot of junk, however, it just relates to music and I don't think they will be making a reality show out of me. 

 

Hear the best of the 50's, 60's, 70's, and 80's on WRCO FM 100.9 Saturday night from 6 until Midnight.  We will be playing our quiz games and spinning your requests.  I can't wait for another dose of Saturday night!
