On April 12th, 1954, Bill Haley And His Comets recorded "Rock Around The Clock" for Decca Records. It is considered the first rock and roll song to top the charts. This week on WRCOs' Those Were The Days we will remember that great history making tune. From our golden vault of interviews, hear from James Myers who was one of the writers of the song, and Marshall Lytle who was a member of Bill Haley's Comets. We will say happy birthday to David Cassidy and John Kay of Steppenwolf. Get ready to win some cool stuff when we play trivia. Your classic rock and roll requests are only a phone call away Saturday night. I hope to hear from you. Our ratings should be better this week because we will not be going head to head with the Badger men's basketball team!
Phil Nee hosts WRCO FM's Those Were the Days every Saturday night from 6-12M. Phil is also heard weekday mornings on WRCO FM 100.9 in Richland Center, WI.
