In the early 1970's my mother learned that the best way to deal with a problem child was to bribe him. The best way to get me to the barber's chair, help with chores, or behave in Church was to offer the chance to pick out a sixty-three cent forty-five record or $4.99 album. It planted a seed which grew into a life long hobby of collecting music. Mom helped me buy records that I still play on the air today. Most have been converted to a digital format. I remember her letting me buy the three album set 'Wings Over America' which chronicled Paul McCartney & Wings tour of 1976. I must have really needed an attitude adjustment for her to spend that much on me. During this Mothers Day weekend, I need to say thank you to her for all of the sacrifices and all of the vinyl. Join me this Saturday night for Those Were The Days featuring the best of the fifties through the eighties. This weekend on WRCO FM 100.9 I will play a few songs with mama or mother featured in the title or song lyrics. Dedicate a song to your mom or to yourself. Win a trivia prize for you or your mom! I hope you will check in with me. Happy Mothers Day.
