A Galaxy of Hits From 1964

Here is the plan for this Saturday nights' Those Were the Days radio show on WRCO FM 100.9 and  I will be spotlighting a few of the songs that are featured in the soundtrack for Guardians of the Galaxy 3 which is in theaters this weekend.  The first two Guardians movies brought back a number of classic songs to a new generation.  The 3rd soundtrack features such hits as: Since You Been Gone-Rainbow,  Crazy On You-Heart,  Badlands-Bruce Springsteen,  Reasons-Earth Wind and Fire,  and I'm Always Chasing Rainbows-Alice Cooper.  We will be visiting Mastodon Records in downtown Richland Center for a vinyl copy that we can spin Saturday night during Those Were the Days.

The year of 1964 was a year of transtition in rock n' roll music.  The British Invasion was just getting underway in the spring and for the next couple of years the groups from jolly old England dominated American music.  TWTD favorites from the survey in May of 1964 include:  Can't Buy Me Love-Beatles,  Glad All Over-Dave Clark Five,  Nadine-Chuck Berry,  (Just Like) Romeo and Juliet-Reflections,  The Way You Do the Things You Do-Temptations,  New Girl In School-Jan and Dean,  and Needles and Pins-Searchers.  I will spin of few spring of '64 classics on Saturday night.  Those songs go back to when I was a wee Nee on the banks of the Willow creek.  Luckily I did not float down stream in my bassinet like Moses. There is no guarantee that anyone would have pulled me from the water and saved me.

Join the fun Saturday night between six and midnight during Those Were the Days.  A show that features the best of the fifties through the early 90's.  We have some great treats to give away when we play our trivia games!  Listen for some 'sweet turntable treats' sponsored by Udder Brothers Creamery of Boscobel.
