A Tribute to Our Feathered Friends

During this weekends Those Were the Days, we will pay homage to songs about birds.  There is a long list of tunes with titles that pay tribute to our winged buddies including:  Blackbird-Beatles,  Rockin' Robin-Bobby Day/Michael Jackson,  Fly Robin Fly-Silver Convention,  White Bird-Its A Beautiful Day,  And Your Bird Can Sing-Beatles,  On the Wings of A Nightingale-Everly Brothers,  The Bird-The Time, and  Surfin Bird-The Trashmen.  Now that Spring has successfully arrived, we can  welcome back our rockin' birds to our neighborhoods.  Saturday nights' Those Were the Days program will provide you with the best of the fifties through the eighties Top 40 tunes, audience participation trivia, and a fun party with friends.  It takes a group effort to program a six hour show.  Thanks to everyone who contributed to the sound last week.

Our program received one of the highest possible honors this week when we were mentioned in the obituary of Beverly Pittman Burns.  As I said on the air last Saturday, Beverly has been one of our most thoughtful and dedicated listeners for many years.  By request of her family, an aircheck of Those Were the Days on WRCO will play during her visitation this weekend.  I am so honored. She had such a positive attitude and always mentioned how grateful she was and how great her life was. We can all take lessons from her attitude.   If there is a way to live stream in heaven, I am sure Bev will find a way to listen to Saturdays With Simo and Saturday nights' Those Were the Days.  

I hope you will hang out with us on Sautrday night between six and midnight during Those Were the Days radio show (the best of the fifties through the eightis)  on WRCO FM 100.9 and
