One Hit Wonders On Those Were The Days

A listener called and requested that we play a few one hit wonders for our theme.  We can't even scratch the surface of one hit wonders on one show.  I have counted over one thousand one hit wonders that charted between 1960 and 1989!  We featured two full six hour programs, some years ago, and did not play the same one hit wonder twice!  This week we will play some of our favorites and you can check in with your votes for one time big shots on the charts.  The following is a list of some of my favorite one hit wonders from the 1970s:  1970-All Right Now-Free 1971-Get It On-Chase  1972-White Lies, Blue Eyes-Bullet  1973-Dancing In the Moonlight-King Harvest  1974-Rock On-David Essex  1975-How Long?-Ace  1976  Play That Funky Music-Wild Cherry  1977 Ariel-Dean Friedman  1978-Hot Child In The City-Nick Gilder  1979-Driver's Seat-Sniff 'n' The Tears.    Those songs would make up a great mix tape!   Please give me a call and request a favorite during this Saturday night's Those Were The Days on WRCO FM 100.9. It does not have to be a one hit wonder.  We will feature a cow bell trivia question each hour.  Thanks to the listener who suggested our topic for this week.  If you have an idea for a theme, please let me know.  I am always up for suggestions.  Thanks for reading this.  I will charge the Ronco Record Vac and get ready to play the grooves on the radio this Saturday night.


Phil Nee hosts WRCO FM's Those Were the Days every Saturday night from 6-12M. Phil is also heard weekday mornings on WRCO FM 100.9 in Richland Center, WI.
