1966 Summer In the City

This weekend Those Were the Days on Saturday night will take you back to the Summer of 1966.  Along with our featured year, we will be spinning all of your requests from the fifties through the early 90's.  We will also pay tribute to Olivia Newton-John.  Many of us have fond memories of moments of her career.  I remember when her mid-70's albums were hard to find because they were selling so fast.  It was a memorable concert when we had the chance to see her in the 2000's.  She appeared to float across the stage and had a great interaction with the audience.  It seemed like she really enjoyed her time on stage that night.

The Summer of 1966 had many songs that still find the airwaves today across the world.  Some of my faves include:  Summer in the City-Lovin Spoonful,  Hungry-Paul Revere and the Raiders,  Land of 1,000 Dances-Wilson Pickett,  Pretty Flamingo-Manfred Mann,  Paperback Writer-Beatles,  Bus Stop-Hollies, and Sweet Pea-Tommy Roe.  It was one of the last glory years for AM Top Forty radio before the FM channels started to play more album oriented music.  

Thanks for a memorable summer.  Our Saturday nights together are great fun!  We are still speaking with new friends each week that catch us either on 100.9 FM or at wrco.com.  It is an honor for me to be a part of many bonfires, cookouts,  birthday parties, and front porch times.  I hope to hear from you between six and midnight this Saturday night.

Phil
