Those Were The Days

Those Were The Days began on October 12th 1986.  We now currently play songs that were new when the show started!  The show is a Top 40 variety show which features music from 1954 through 1989.  I began collecting records in 1971.  My first 45 was 'Have You Seen Her?' by the Chi-Lites.  I love to share my collection each week and its really great when someone makes me dig out something that we have never played before.  It is amazing to say it still happens after all of these years!   We do play a few album cuts that may have not been released as singles to radio over the years.  A great number of local records have made our airwaves as well.  Richland Centers' own Vilas Craig and the Vicounts and the Madison based band Clicker are among the most requested.   We do get a few requests for Country songs from time to time.  Our rule of thumb is that the song had to have made the Top 40 or Pop charts for us to play it on Those Were the Days.  That is why  you might hear some early Johnny Cash, Patsy Cline, or a comedy record by Ray Stevens.  The request line number is 608 647-4155.  You can also email a request or dedication to This email address is being protected from spambots.

Happy Trails.
