A Saturday Night Salute To Queen!

Hey rock and rollers.  It will be great to spin some records during this Saturday nights Those Were The Days radio program.  I hope you enjoyed a look at some of my favorite albums.  It was fun to put that together for this past weekends show.  This Saturday night I will be taking your requests, playing trivia, and saluting the Queen!  I had a chance to see the new movie Bohemian Rhapsody and it is very good.  I saw all ages in the theater.   A few college age kids were singing along to the songs.  It is great to know that the music that I loved when I was their age will live on for many years.  On the way home from the movie, I realized that we have never featured a salute to Queen during the past 32 plus years of Those Were The Days.  This Saturday night I will dig out some of my favorites and you can chime in with a request from the Queen catalog.  My friend Kent Kotal recently posted the Queen hit list on his website
