I Can't Wait For Some Tunes From '68!

Posted by on in Those Were The Days

This Saturday night on WRCO FM 100.9 we will return to our normal schedule after a couple of weeks with shorter request time. Those Were The Days will feature 6 hours of great old rock and roll hits and we will stop for a time in 1968.  There were some terrific tunes that were big on the charts and we will remember some of those golden goodies on this weekends show.  Join us for trivia every time you hear the 'Magic Cow Bell' ring.   So sit back and relax, steal the last of the kids Halloween candy, and tune in WRCO FM Saturday night.  You will hear some rock and roll radio fun.  I guarantee it!

This Week In Rock And Roll History

Posted by on in Those Were The Days

Hey Rock And Rollers !!!  Join me this week for some of the biggest rock and roll songs from the Autumn seasons of days gone by.  Hear the Four Seasons,  O'Jays, Naked Eyes, and many more groups that were having hits.  Join us before Sectional Championship Volleyball and after the match as well.  We will take requests later on in the night.  Thanks for sticking with us last week.  We received lots of calls from folks that were requesting great tunes during the last two hours of the show.  I will talk to you Saturday night and I will play for you some of the greatest pop hits of all time!

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.
