1964 And Rain Songs!

This week on Those Were The Days we will turn the clock back to this weekend in 1964.  Everyone remembers that the Beatles took the first shot and led the British Invasion on the American charts that year.  This weekend several American acts such as the Beach Boys were firing back great hits. 

Last Saturday night, someone requested 'Raindance' by the Guess Who.  That got me thinking that we should play a few rain songs this week and maybe we can shake some rain out of the sky.

It was a sad day recently when we heard of the death of Andy Griffith.  I wanted to live in Mayberry when I was a kid.  My dad had an Andy Griffith 78 rpm record that came out long before The Andy Griffith Show. The record featured  Andy's stand up routine "What It Was, Was Football" which is still funny after all of the these years.   He was so talented and had so much class.

Last week we lost Don Grady to cancer.  Don was well known for his role in My Three Sons. He was also the drummer of a 60's music group known as The Yellow Balloon.   He was my guest a few years ago on Those Were The Days and I will feature a bit of that interview on this weeks program.

We will also be taking your requests and playing trivia.  I hope to hear from you this Saturday night between 6 and Midnight  when we again 'take those old records off the shelf' on WRCO FM 100.9.
