1965 Shakin All Over

In the deep Winter of 1965, there were many hot hits happening in rock and roll music.  Television was playing a big role with the Ed Sullivan show at its peak featuring top artists, and other shows like Shindig and Hullabaloo.  They brought music to mid America as did many other network variety shows.  Radio was doing its part and many stations would have countdowns strictly dedicated to the British Invasion artists.  This Saturday night on the radio I will try to recreate some of that musical excitement during Those Were the Days on WRCO FM 100.9 and  A few of my favorite tunes from the first weekend of February 1965 include:  This Diamond Ring-Gary Lewis and the Playboys,  Love Potion Number Nine-Searchers,  All Day and All Of the Night-Kinks,  Keep Searchin-Del Shannon,  Heart of Stone-Rolling Stones,  I Feel Fine-Beatles,  Laugh, Laugh-Beau Brummels, Look Of Love-Lesley Gore,  and Can't You Hear My Heartbeat-Hermans Hermits.

Please give me a call and keep me awake.  I will be tired from covering an all day wrestling tournament and would enjoy the company.  I will sip a Ski soda pop, put my feet in the air, and relax the rest of the night while listening to the greatest music from the fifties through the eighties.  You could be the winner of prizes including tickets to a comedy show.  Join us Saturday night between 6 and midnight for Those Were the Days.
