Pat Boone and the Fab Fifties

This Saturday night on Those Were the Days courtesy of WRCO FM 100.9 and we will be flying back to the early days of rock n' roll.   I had the extreme honor of talking with Pat Boone recently.  He had one more hit record than Elvis in the fifties.  This is an underated artist that had a great deal to do with bringing rock n' roll to American homes when he recorded songs that were written by the likes of Fats Domino and Little Richard.  This helped them become major stars of the era.  Pat Boone is not in the rock n' roll hall of fame, however,  in my opinion he is more worthy than many that have been honored.  It was cool to be able to tell him that.  Saturday night you can hear segments of the interview.  There are not many artists left that can talk first hand about Elvis and other stars of early rock.  If you would like a preview of the interview and more about the Pat Boone hitlist, you can check out Kent Kotal's website  Kent posted a segment about our interview that appeared on his blog Wednesday.

We will be taking your requests and you can win a prize during our trivia segments this Saturday night.  I hope you will give a listen and have some fun with us during Saturday nights' Those Were the Days radio show.  Between the hours of six and midnight we will be playing the best of the fifties through the early nineties. The first vinyl era.  Saturday April 22nd is Record Store Day 2023.  Please support your local record stores.  If my wife June gives me my allowance, I may have some new vinyl to play for you this weekend.
