A Night Of Dancing In 1983

Hey rock n' rollers!  This Saturday night WRCO FM 100.9 will take you back to more favorite radio classics from the past.  We will stop and park in 1983.  I will count down the biggest records of that year.  Back in the day I was spinning records at bars, softball parks, high school dances, and anywhere else that needed background noise.  There were so many danceable songs in 1983.  The most popular requests included:  Beat It-Michael Jackson,  Cum On Feel The Noise-Quiet Riot,  Safety Dance-Men Without Hats,  Come On Eileen-Dexys Midnight Runners,  Uptown Girl-Billy Joel,  Flashdance (What A Feeling)-Irene Cara and many more.  Todays Top Forty songs all seem to be the same tempo.  If I get caught on the dance floor during a wedding dance, I just stand there and move my head and arms back and forth. There is a strong resemblance between me and Mr. Gopher from the movie Caddyshack.  Young people of today do not like to dance to really fast songs and slow songs!   In 1983 there was a great mixture of fast and a few good slow love songs.  I hope you will dance along with the countdown this Saturday night during Those Were The Days.  I will not be in the studio to take your requests.  Hang on to those and get ready for another rocking year of radio good times.
