Saturday night on WRCO FM 100.9 you can request a pop radio hit from the fifties through the eighties. Those Were The Days is the radio show that you can help program. Please contact me Saturday night with a request and I will do my best to get in on the airwaves for you. During the week I dumpster dive looking for old goodies. That means there is something each week that you have not heard on our show before. On this weeks six hour blast, I will play some of the highlights from this weekend in 1974. It is a chart I can remember like it was yesterday. My once per week visit to Saffells music store in Richland Center was a highlight for a young farm boy. I could actually see the records I was hearing on the radio and the colors of the record labels were absorbed by my young brain. Today when I play Can't Get Enough by Bad Company, I can picture the Atlantic record label gong round and round. When Sweet Home Alabama is on the air, I remember seeing it in the record store and the MCA label on the 45. November of 1974 had many hits that we still play today. You Aint Seen Nothing Yet by Bachman-Turner Overdrive, I Can Help-Billy Swan, and When Will I See You Again- Three Degrees could be heard up and down the dial in November of 1974. We will remember that time with music and trivia during this Saturday nights Those Were The Days radio program. I hope you will tune in 100.9 and join the party like all of the cool kids!
