Celebrate The Spring Of 1971 On TWTD

This Saturday night WRCO FM 100.9 will be the place to be as we travel back to 1971.  We will play for you some of the hot hits from that Spring during our six hour Those Were The Days show.  During that year I was trying to do as many chores on the farm as possible.  Barn scraping was my best skill.  I would save up sixty-nine cents and take the money to Saffell's music store and the Dime Store to buy new forty-five records from Three Dog Night,  Partridge Family,  Cat Stevens,  Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, and the Jackson Five.  I will play some of those songs on the radio this Saturday night!  There was controversy on the school bus in 1971.  Half of the students thought the title of the new song by Lobo was....'Me & You And A Dog Named Blue' ,  the rest of us could not convince them that the dogs name was Boo.  There are probably some adults walking around today that still think the mutt was called Blue.  That reminds me of the 1965 McCoys' hit 'Hang On Sloopy'.  If I had a dime for everytime a caller has asked  for 'Hang On Snoopy', I would have bought more forty-five records by now! 

I hope you will join the party and dedicate a song this Saturday night during the best of the fifties through the eighties Those Were The Days radio show on WRCO FM 100.9.  I will be asking one trivia question per hour and perhaps you can win and amaze your friends.
