The Spring Of 1969!

Hey kids!  This is Phil Nee and I hope you will check in with me during this Saturday nights edition of Those Were The Days.  We will be spinning the best of the 50's through the 80's pop radio memories.  We do play a few album cuts, blues records, and  novelites.  You will get a chance to program the show again on Saturday night.  Listen for the 'Magic Cow Bell' for a chance to win a great prize.  This weekend I will look at some of the biggest hits from this weekend in 1969.  Tommy Roe's Dizzy was enjoying another weekend at number one.  The Foundations were singing Build Me Up Buttercup,  and the Zombies were enjoying their last big record (Time Of The Season).  We will give you insight Saturday night on one of the Springs one-hit-wonders Hot Smoke And Sassafrass by Bubble Puppy!  The Spring of '69 saw our friends from the New Colony Six enjoy National attention with Things I'd Like To Say.  I know that we will have a good time this Saturday night.  Thanks for listening all of these years.

Colony Six

The New Colony Six played at my high school. It was like the Beatles showing up because we heard them on WLS all of the time.
