1969-May I Buy A Record?

I have always loved vinyl records.  My dad had a collection of 78s that I played when I was old enough to lift the tone arm on the record player.  Songs by Bing Crosby and Spike Jones got regular spins at the old farm house.  I saved money from my allowance and one day offered money to my dad to buy some of his records.  He told me that I could have them and that may be the reason I still buy records today.  It would still be a couple of years before I actually went to the store and bought my own music.  The radio was always on in the house and barn.  There were plenty of hits on the radio in May of 1969.  It was still the prime of Top Forty radio.  This week during my Those Were The Days radio show on FM 100.9, I will be playing of few of those classics from the first half of 1969 including:  Get Back-Beatles,  Hawaii Five-O-Ventures,  Grazin' In The Grass-Friends Of Distinction,  Bad Moon Rising-C.C.R.,  Gimme Gimme Good Lovin-Crazy Elephant,  and Sweet Cherry Wine-Tommy James.  The request line will be open for you to ask for a hit from the fifties through the eighties Saturday night between six and Midnight.   We will be playing trivia and giving you a chance to play along.  With better weather this weekend, I expect some of our Those Were The Days campfire gangs to check in from the hills and valleys of Southwest Wisconsin.  It could get wild by the time we head to the 'party at the moon tower'  at Midnight.  I hope you will join me for Those Were The Days on WRCO FM 100.9 Saturday night!
