1966 At Forty-Five RPM On TWTD

We will be taking your Top Forty Radio requests this Saturday night during Those Were The Days on WRCO FM 100.9.  We will also be flying back to Pop Radios' finest hour.  The year of 1966 featured hit after hit.  Artists that debuted that year included:  The Monkees, The Grass Roots,  The Association, Tommy James, Neil Diamond, B.J. Thomas, and The Mamas And The Papas.  Groups dominated the year as The Beatles, The Beach Boys, The Rolling Stones, The Lovin' Spoonful, and Hermans Hermits ranked as the biggest selling of 1966.  Many recorded jingles for radio commercials.  It was hard to tell the commercials from the full length songs. Tune in this week for great hits from the fifties through the eighties on Those Were The Days. You can play trivia and join the party this weekend.
