Special Guest Hal Blaine Saturday Night

Listen for your favorite pop radio memories on Saturday nights Those Were The Days.  Last week was one of the best nights in a while.  Not only were there a good number of requests, but there were many that I have not played in a long while. 


Tune in 100.9 FM Saturday night between 6 pm and Midnight for Those Were The Days.  This time we will feature a few stories from legendary session musician Hal Blaine.  He played on many hits from the likes of Elvis Presley, John Denver, the Ronettes, Simon & Garfunkel, the Carpenters, the Beach Boys, Nancy Sinatra, and the 5th Dimension.  He was a member of the legendary 'Wrecking Crew' that played behind numberous number one hits.  Here is a small list of them: Can't Help Falling In Love-Elvis Presley, These Boots Are Made For Walkin-Nancy Sinatra,  Dizzy-Tommy Roe,  Bridge Over Troubled Water-Simon & Garfunkel,  I Think I Love You-Partridge Family,  Cracklin'Rosie-Neil Diamond,  Thank God I'm A Country Boy-John Denver,  and Love Will Keep Us Together-Captain & Tennille and many more!


Win a great prize from our grab bag of goodies this Saturday night during trivia time.  Those Were The Days is a party favorite around Southwestern Wisconsin camp fires.  I can't wait for that season to finally get here!



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.
