The Vinyl Vault and Early '73 & '83 Jams

This Saturday night on Those Were the Days, I will be presenting blocks of songs that are played strictly from vinyl.  You may hear a few pops but hopefully no skips.  If that happens, I may need to put a nickle on the tone arm!  I will also spotlight a couple of good years for popular music.  In the early days of 1973  there were many great hits and all kinds of styles from hard rock to singer/songwriter soft rock.  Ten years later, music was vastly different with a nod toward the hit making MTV.  There were lots of British groups that became popular because of the constant video rotation on that music channel.  Both 1973 and 1983 will be highlighted on Those Were the Days throughout this year as we recognize the 50th and 40th anniversaries respectively.  

We will not be taking your requests on the show this Saturday night.  I have many irons in the fire this week and a big family birthday this weekend. Happy birthday to Granddaughter #1 Oaklee June.  I hope you will continue to listen.  There are some big shows coming up in March.  Tune in Saturday night to Those Were the Days on WRCO FM 100.9 and and tell your worldwide friends to join us!  It is amazing to hear from people that hear us all over the globe.
