A Salute To Irish Rock And Roll

Hear a few 'green' songs on this weeks edition of Those Were The Days on WRCO FM 100.9.  We will also pay tribute to a few Irish born rockers.  Van Morrison and his group Them which helped put Ireland rock and roll on the map in the 1960s.  In the early 70's Gilbert O'Sullivan had several hits in America such as: Alone Again (Naturally),  Clair,  and Get Down.  The hard rocking group Thin Lizzy had a hit with The Boys Are Back In Town from an album called Jailbreak in 1976.  The 1980's saw the rise of the most successful Irish rock band,  U2.  Hear from some of these great groups mixed in with your favorite rock and roll requests this Saturday night on WRCO Radio.

 

I hope to hear from you than!

 

Phil
