Simon Says Listen To Those Were The Days

I can vividly recall a classmate bringing 45's of the 1910 Fruitgum Company to school.  The teacher would play Simon Says on the classroom turntable that was built like a tank.  The entire class would play the game.  I rarely got to go out for a recess because of my mouth running (which now I get paid for).  On those rainy days when the rest of the class had to stay inside with me, we would listen to those little records that were pressed on the Buddah label.  This Saturday night I get to talk to one of the founding members of the 1910 Fruitgum Company (Frank Jeckell) during my Those Were The Days radio show.   It was fifty years ago this month when the song Simon Says was peaking in the Top Ten.   Hear about Bubblegum music and request a song between six and Midnight during our fifties, sixties, seventies, and eighties radio show on FM 100.9.  Spring is finally here!  It will not be long before campfire gangs and campers will calling for songs.  It is very rewarding to hear from listeners of all ages.  I hope to hear from you during Those Were The Days this Saturday night.
