Southern Fried TWTD Rock

Posted by on in Those Were The Days

Southern Rock has long been a popular genre of music and this Saturday night Those Were The Days will feature some of the best.  Ultimate Classic Rock recently came out with its Top 10 best Southern Rock songs of all time and we will count them down for you.  You may be surprised by the number one song on the list. There are a few standards that did not make the top 10. There is even a British band with a song in the Southern Rock Top 10!  I will be broadcasting volleyball  this Saturday night.   I will be back later in the night to play your rock and roll requests!  Please give me a call Saturday night. 

On October 12th Those Were The Days was officially 26 years old.  Thanks for all of the musical memories!  I would like to say that we have grown up together, however, I don't feel like I have grown up yet!

Paul Evans Singer-Songwriter On TWTD

Posted by on in Those Were The Days

On this Saturday nights Those Were The Days, hear my conversation with Paul Evans.  He was the writer and performer on several big hits in the 50's and 60's.  Those songs include:  Seven Little Girls, and Happy Go Lucky along with hits for Elvis (I Gotta Know),  and Bobby Vinton (Roses Are Red).  He was a writer when rock and roll was young and he has a lot of tales about those days. 

Join WRCO FM 100.9 for Those Were The Days on Saturday night after CBS news at 6:00 pm and until 12 midnight.  Request a pop hit from the 50's through the 80's and I will see if I can dig it up for you.  Several tried and failed to stump me last Saturday night.  It is always great to hear from so many that enjoy the variety of music that we play.  It is fun to imagine what is going on out there in radio land and who is listening.  Last week we heard from an Elvis impersonator who was traveling through the area.  Two weeks back a couple called us for a song on their wedding night!    I love radio very much, however, I don't remember listening to the radio the night I got married. 

I hope to hear from you on Saturday night.

Get Your Kicks In '66

Posted by on in Those Were The Days

This week on Those Were The Days, we will feature some of the top songs from this weekend in 1966.  There was a lot happening as music was changing that Fall.  Groups like the Association were having great success with beautiful melodies, the Monkees were first on tv and even out sold the Beatles late in the year.  Motown groups were all the rage and harder edged 'garage rock' was hitting the mainstream.  Enjoy the hits from this weekend in 1966 Saturday night on WRCOs' Those Were The Days. 

Enjoy the greatest pop radio memories from the 50's through the 80's.  Those Were The Days features a great soundtrack for campfires!  Maybe you will win a trivia prize.  I hope to hear from you Saturday night.

This week on WRCOs'Those Were The Days, KC of KC And The Sunshine Band will be my phone guest.  Although I have been blessed with the chance to interview hundreds of artists from the 50's through the 80's, the chance to have Harry Wayne Casey (KC) as a guest has never happened before.  Did you know?.....KC was a co-writer of George McCrae's number one hit 'Rock Your Baby' a year before the Sunshine Band hit it big...The Sunshine Band was the first act to score four # 1 pop hits in one 12 month period....KC's music has been featured in over 75 movies.

 

Have a disco good time Saturday night and request a song from our always expanding library of vintage tracks.  Those Were The Days on WRCO FM 100.9 can be heard from 6 p to Midnight.

 

Thanks for listening!
