An Overlooked Year In Music-1963

There are many that say that rock and roll was going down hill until the Beatles came along and saved it in 1964.  There is no doubt that the Fab Four brought excitement and several British artists took rock and roll in a different direction.  In 1963 there were some good sounding 45's on the charts.  The great records included:  Walk Like A Man-Four Seasons,  Ruby Baby-Dion,  In Dreams-Roy Orbison,  He's So Fine-Chiffons,  Little Town Flirt-Del Shannon, Up On The Roof-The Drifters, and The Night Has A Thousand Eyes-Bobby Vee.  Although I am not able to remember the first time these songs were on the radio,  I do have fond memories of hearing them a few years later and becoming an instant fan.  Those early Bobby Vee records were outstanding and years later I was able to strike up a friendship with the pride of Fargo, North Dakota.  He was on the phone with me several times during my years of hosting Those Were The Days.  This week during our tribute to the fifties through the eighties, we will stop for a bit in 1963 and feature your rock and roll requests from all of the decades that we play.  We will have a full night of music and sports updates from the high school Winter sports post season.  Lets have some fun this Saturday night between six and Midnight.
