Do You Want To Listen To Some Albums?

This Saturday night during Those Were The Days I will dust off a few favorite albums.  Many hours were spent jamming out to albums in my room at the old farm house.  Cassette dubs made it possible to take music with me.  My favorite music from the Those Were The Days era has always been Top Forty pop songs.  I love a three minute (or less) song which was played during radios Top Forty golden era.  Those songs led me to the record department to buy my own copies.  If I had $4.99 burning a hole in my pocket, I would spring for the entire album.  Once in a while I was not happy with my purchase and in other cases I am still listening to the record after all of these years.  During this weekends edition of Those Were The Days,  I will play some of my favorites.  Since I own over five thousand albums, it is a tough task to determine my ultimate albums.   While I like many of their songs, I have never been a big fan of Pink Floyd, Yes,  and Emerson, Lake, and Palmer albums.  A few of their long players put me to sleep.   I like more straight forward rock and roll and pop songs.  When choosing my list I included greatest hits packages.  A poor farm kid could get more bang for the buck with a package of familiar songs.  Live albums also gave me the chance to add more good songs to my collection.  I hope you will join me for the best of the fifties through the eighties on Saturday night during Those Were The Days on WRCO FM 100.9.  The request line will not be open this weekend.  That feature will return next Saturday night.  We have some great ideas lined up for the rest of the year.   Please join us on this blog for updates.  Perhaps you would like to weigh in with votes for your favorite albums.  Drop me a line at this blog site or send me an email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. if you would like to rate an album or give suggestions for future show themes.  Thanks for reading and we will look forward to playing some good old rock and roll Saturday night.
