My Favorite Teen Idols

On this Saturday nights Those Were The Days radio show, I will play some of my favorite teen idols.  The men and women entertainers that I feel were more than just pretty faces!  The definition of a teen idol is sometimes debated.  Even though they were loved by millions of teens that screamed,  I don't feel that Elvis and the Beatles were teen idols.  The stars that got roles on television shows that led to music, got record deals because they were a pretty face, or were groomed into being music stars by a manager or talent agency.  In some cases, these stars put out some pretty good records. In many cases these entertainers were singers and played intstruments before fame.   I will take a look at some of my guilty musical pleasures this Saturday night.   I have always maintained that some Partridge Family records were pretty good,  Bobby Sherman had a couple of moments, and  Bobby Rydell is an incredible talent.  Rick Nelson was famous for being on his parents television show, however, his musical talent was obvious and his records were incredible.  This Saturday night I will spin a few of my favorite teen records and your rock and roll requests.  Those Were The Days is a proud part of the WRCO FM 100.9 Saturday 'retro'  shows.  I hope you will check in during trivia and requests between six and midnight.
