Saturday night during Those Were The Days on WRCO FM 100.9 we will transport you back fifty years to February first of 1964. It was a chart that was dominated by American artists with one big exception. The Rip Chords were at number five with the car classic Hey Little Cobra. The Trashmen from Minnesota were at number four with Surfin' Bird. The instrumental classic Out Of Limits by the Marketts held down the third spot. Talented teenager Leslie Gore had the second most popular record with You Don't Own Me. This weekend fifty years ago the Beatles were enjoying the groups first American number one with I Want To Hold Your Hand. In the coming weeks with three straight appearances on the Ed Sullivan Show the group would dominate the American record surveys. Many of the British groups would follow with TV appearances and huge hits. Enjoy some of the great tunes from 1964 this weekend. We will also be taking your rock and roll requests from the 50's through the 80's. Maybe you will win a prize when we ring the 'Magic Cowbell' this Saturday night on WRCO FM 100.9.
