Huey Lewis' Sports Turns 30!

The release of the album Sports by Huey Lewis & The News in the Fall of 1983 brought good rock and roll back to the charts.  It was nice to hear a saxophone on Top 40 radio again. Five songs from the album made the Billboard Top 100 and all 9 got radio play.  Hear a few of those tunes on this Saturday nights edition of Those Were The Days on WRCO FM 100.9.  Here is a track listing for the classic Huey Lewis album that many had on cassette, album, 45's, and have now digitally downloaded.

 

Side One                                                      Side Two

The Heart Of Rock & Roll                                 Walking On A Thin Line

Heart and Soul                                              Finally Found A Home

Bad Is Bad                                                    If This Is It

I Want A New Drug                                         You Crack Me Up

                                                                   Honky Tonk Blues

 

We will be taking your requests this Saturday night during our 6 hour music of the 50's through the 80's get together.  While many stations have forgotten about the tunes from the 50's thru 1963 (pre-Beatles), we still get requests for them and are glad to play them.  Win some cool prizes this weekend!  Try your luck when we play trivia on WRCO FM 100.9.
