February 1975 Memories During Those Were The Days

This Saturday night we will take a trip back to 1975 during Those Were The Days on WRCO FM 100.9.  Many feel that the 1970s were not a great time for music.  I agree that there was some schlock songs, however,  you can pick out a few clunkers from every era of music.  This week in 1975 there were many good tunes filling the airwaves including: Best Of My Love-Eagles, Some Kind Of Wonderful-Grand Funk, Black Water-Doobie Brothers, Roll On Down The Highway-B.T.O.,  Boogie On Reggae Woman-Stevie Wonder, and Lady-Styx.  My memories of days on the farm include the barn radio.  It was on all the time and the music made the work lighter.  Dad always had WRCO tuned in, however, when he was outside the dial might change to WISM in Madison or WLS- Chicago (on a good night for reception).  WRCO did play Top Forty music after 7 pm on a program called 'Music Scene'.  That is where I heard many songs of 1975 for the first time.  It was fun when they would take requests and I recall calling in a few from the rotary dial phone in the barn.    In 1986, when I was hired by the station, my dad was still milking cows and listening to WRCO on the barn radio.  He retired in 1989 but the radio was left on! It stayed on until a windstorm took down the electric lines to the barn in the mid-90s.

You can request a song from any of the four decades we feature on Saturday night.  Perhaps you will take a trivia challenge during the program.  I hope to talk with you during this weekends show.
