Spring Back To 1983 Saturday Night

Hey Rock n' Rollers!   This Saturday night on Those Were The Days we will pull out some old records from 1983.  That Spring I was graduating from Trans American School Of Broadcasting (Madison Media Institute now) in Wausau.  Of those that completed the program, there are only a few that have stuck it out in the media business.  Many have gone on to much more success with higher paying better benefit jobs with fewer hours.  They got serious with their lives and made good choices for their families.  Those of us that truly love radio would not trade places with those that chose other paths.  I still feel like I am living the dream.  In 1983 my old buddy, Marty Richards, and me were spinning records at bars and high school dances for a few dollars.  Just enough money to go buy a few more records at the Music Shop in Richland Center each week.  This Saturday night on WRCO FM 100.9 you may hear a few of those records that have been converted to digital.  The Spring of 1983 had many great songs that we still enjoy today.  Artists that were having hits included: Prince, Bob Seger,  Dexy's Midnight Runners,  After The Fire,  Michael Jackson,  Journey,  and the Greg Kihn Band.  I will be in the studio so that you can request a song from the fifties through the eighties.  Last weekend we heard from more new friends.  The circle around Richland Center is getting bigger all of the time.  Calls from Mount Hope,  Oakdale (near Tomah),  North Freedom,  and Viroqua were among the places we heard from.  Don't be afraid to give us a call during Those Were The Days Saturday night (608)  647-4155.
