1971 Albums Celebrate Fifty Years

In the early seventies, I started buying vinyl records.  Some fifty years later, I am still collecting.  When I would stroll into Saffell's in downtown Richland Center, I would dream about someday owning the majority of the records that were on display.  There were so many albums that came out fifty years ago that I have purchased along the way.  The spring of 1971 was an amazing creative time for artists in popular music.  This Saturday night on WRCOs' Those Were The Days, I will take a look at some of those iconic long players.  Here is a list of a few 1971 albums you may recognize.........

4 Way Street-Crosby, Stills, Nash, & Young,  Sticky Fingers-Rolling Stones,  L.A. Woman-Doors,  What's Going On-Marvin Gaye,  Every Picture Tells A Story-Rod Stewart,  Blue-Joni Mitchell,  Who's Next-the Who,  Poems, Prayers, & Promises-John Denver,  Survival-Grand Funk Railroad,  Thirds-James Gang,  and Ram-Paul McCartney and Linda McCartney.

I will be in the studio to spin some vinyl for you and I hope you will take the trivia challenge Saturday night between six and midnight.  Your requests of favorite pop radio memories from the fifties through the eighties are welcome.  It is still amazing to me the number of newbies we get each week.  A couple of camping parties discovered us last week for the first time. One of the groups asked me if WRCO just started doing this show.  I told him it seems like it, however, it is coming up on our 35th anniversary later this year!

71 albums rock!

I bought my first albums in 1971. McCartney's Ram was one of them. I can't believe it has been 50 years.
