Parking With The Radio On In 1965!

It was a hot chart back in 1965.  As was the case in the 1960's, many styles of music were represented on the charts.  The top 10 this week included:  Marvin Gaye, Supremes,  Herb Alpert & The Tijuana Brass,  The Vogues,  Bob Dylan, and The Rolling Stones.  It was a time when Top 40 Radio was king with fast talking jocks, loud commercials, and 2 1/2 minute songs.  We will spin a few of those hot hits from all of those years ago on this Saturday nights' Those Were The Days show on WRCO FM 100.9.

 

I will be live in the studio and I can't wait to hear from you. Help program the playlist when you request a song and play trivia with us this Saturday night from 6 pm until Midnight.  We have talked with several listeners that enjoyed last Saturdays retro show.  We sounded a little younger back in 1987!  It is always fun to go back and remember when the show was all vinyl records and commercials on tape cartridges.  It involved a lot more running.  I was in better shape than!  Last weeks flashbacks to 1973 and 1983 were fun to put together.  Those two years were really great Top 40 music years.  I am glad that you liked it.
