This Weekend In '66 With The Robbs

There was a ton of great music coming from small dash board speakers and portable radios this weekend in 1966.  I will be spinning a few of the hottest hits.  I will also play a couple of songs from Wisconsins' hottest band in the Spring and Summer of 1966. The Robbs from Milwaukee were appearing on National TV on the hit show Where The Action Is.  The Robbs have been dubbed as the 'Kings Of Bubbling Under'.  Billboard Magazine publishes its weekly Top 100 and during the 60's and 70's they would also add a few extras that they called  Bubbling Under the Top 100 hits.  The Robbs hold the record for the most records of any act that never made the Hot 100.  Their songs include: Race With The Wind, Bittersweet, and Last Of The Wine.  Group member Craig Krampf will have a few coments about those days of long ago. 


I hope you enjoyed the Top 50 IRS (It Really Shoulda Been A Top Ten Hit) countdown last Saturday night.  Get those requests ready!  After a week off from requesting,  I am sure there will be some lost gems that you come up with this week.  The Magic Cowbell will return when we play trivia Saturday night on TWTD.



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.
