1973 From The Nee And Favorite Albums Saturday Night

This Saturday night we will continue tributes to favorite Summers.  We will stop and park with 100.9 coming through the dash during the Summer of 1973.  That was truly a great time for Top Forty music.  Many of the top songs of that season are ones we still play on Those Were The Days including:  Smoke On The Water-Deep Purple,  Long Train Running-Doobie Brothers,  Back When My Hair Was Short-Gunhill Road,  Money-Pink Floyd,  Kodachrome-Paul Simon,  Shambala-Three Dog Night, and Feelin' Stronger Everyday-Chicago.  These songs bring back many memories of making hay, eating coney dogs at Dog N' Suds, playing 4-H softball, and  going to Boaz for a Friday night fish fry with my parents.  My mom never had any quarters in her change purse in the seventies because I always had my hand out asking for an advance on my allowance. At Staffords Supper Club in Boaz you could get 4 plays for a quarter on the jukebox!  They also had a Mod Squad pinball machine.  During Those Were The Days on WRCO FM 100.9 this Saturday night, I will pull a few 45's that will take me back to that great Summer.  We will also pay tribute to a few choice albums from 1968 that are fifty years old this year.  One of my favorite K-tel albums will be highlighted late in the night when we play some 'moon tower' melodies.   These are songs that I used to crank from a K-tel greatest hits package called 'Pure Rock' when the buddies would get together.  K-tel records were similar to the Now series of cd's that have been coming out over the last many years with current artists hits of the day.  I will not be in the studio to take your requests this Saturday night.  Please save those for next Saturday night July 14th.   You will still be able to hear many of your favorite songs from the fifties through the eighties between six and Midnight when you are listening to WRCO FM 100.9 Saturday night.
