Give Me More Rocking Flute

Saturday night on WRCOs' Those Were the Days,  I will feature a topic that has not been featured in our 37 years.  We talk about shredding guitars and cow bells, however, we have never payed tribute to the flute!  Many classic songs have featured the wind instrument, although we don't think of it as a part of a rock and roll band.  Some of my favorite groups to feature the flute include:  Jethro Tull,  Firefall,  Chicago, Marshall Tucker Band, and Men At Work.  Songs with flute solos include:  Undun-Guess Who,  Going Up the Country-Canned Heat,  Mighty Quinn (Quinn the Eskimo)-Manfred Mann,  Ruby Tuesday-Rolling Stones,  Moondance-Van Morrison,  and Hocus Pocus-Focus.  Can you think of some classic songs that have featured the flute?  Let me know by leaving a message on this site or by calling me on Saturday.

The request line will be open for the six hours of the show Saturday night on WRCO FM 100.9 and  I will be spinning all of the requested songs I can find whether they have a flute in the background or not.  We had a blast last week hearing from new friends and some folks that have been listening since we started in 1986.  You could be the winner of a great trivia prize if you can come up with the answer to pop culture questions.   Let's get together on Saturday night.
