Spring Back to 1969

I believe the line is actually 'spring forward', however, on WRCO Saturday nights we always go back.  This weekend we will land in 1969.  These songs were on the radio when I was a 'wee nee'.  On a beautiful Spring day, young Phil Nee went outside to play in his sandbox that his dad had made out of an old tractor tire.  While pretend farming, young Philip got bold and raised up the ear flaps on his aviator hat.  The sun was bright that day and the warmth of the son burned his protruding ears.  Even though his ears were itching and peeling, Philip was able to hear radio hits in the Spring of 1969 including:  Crimson and Clover-Tommy James,  Build Me Up Buttercup-Foundations,  Touch Me-Doors,  Proud Mary-CCR,  Ramblin Gamblin Man-Bob Seger System,  Traces-Classics IV,  Things I'd Like To Say-New Colony Six,  Time of the Season-Zombies,  I Heard It Through the Grapevine-Marvin Gaye, and I Got A Line On You-Spirit.  This Saturday on WRCOs' Those Were the Days, much older Philip will be spinning a few of these favorites.  It is suppose to be nice Saturday, but I better not lift my ear flaps for fear of burning my ears!  I want to look good on the radio.

It will be great to be back in the studio.  All of the regular features will return to the six hour Those Were the Days radio show.  You might be the winner of a great prize when we feature the great hits from the fifites through the eighties between six and midnight.  Lets have a radio party together!
