A Summer Full Of Hits-1965

During the Summer of 1965, some of the most memorable Top Forty radio hits of all time were released.  While I was very young that year,  they tell me I was already on the radio.  My parents had to get me down before I scratched the finish on the old RCA radio in the living room.  Remember how those stereo record player/radios were centerpieces of many a front room?  My dad bought the one in our living room in the late 1940's.  It was made way before stereo.  It had a radio that could pull in signals from all over the country.  Those old radios had such a warm sound to them.  We were still listening to that set until one day in the late sixties when we waited for the tubes to warm and the radio never came on.  It is now in my living room today.  The radio and record player still don't work, however, it is such a beautiful piece of furniture and it does hold a lot of dvds in the cabinet.  This week on Those Were The Days from WRCO FM 100.9,  I will be playing a few of those classics that you may have heard coming through the radio speakers in 1965.  Some of the 1965 Summer hits included:  Satisfaction-Rolling Stones,  Save Your Heart For Me-Gary Lewis,  Wonderful World-Hermans Hermits,  Help Me Rhonda-Beach Boys,  Down In the Boondocks-Billy Joe Royal,  I Can't Help Myself-Four Tops,  Wooly Bully-Sam the Sham,  For Your Love-Yardbirds,  and Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me-Mel Carter.  All of those hits have been in constant rotation on oldies radio since 1965.  You can certainly request any pop radio hit from the fifties through the eighties Saturday night.  Last week we talked to more new friends around Southwest Wisconsin that were discovering our show for the first time.  I will be at the controls again this weekend.  Tune in 100.9 and crank it up!
