The Story Behind The Song

One of my favorite themes of the program is when we give the history behind a song.  We will do that with a few classics this Saturday night on Those Were The Days.  Jim Ed Brown and the Browns were a very successful trio in the late 50's and early 60's on the Country and Western survey.  They did also have three big hits on Rock and Roll radio in those days.  Recently I talked with Jim Ed about the 'The Three Bells'.  That was a number one hit for the Browns.  It was only a big selling record because Chet Atkins at RCA  insisted they record it.  Hear the story behind the song this Saturday night on WRCO FM 100.9.   The request line will be available for all 6 hours of the program and get ready for trivia!
