Fall Of 1969

This Saturday night during Those Were The Days on WRCO FM 100.9 and, I will be playing highlights from this weekends 1969 music survey.  Hear stories behind the songs with such artists as Gary Puckett,  Ron Dante, and others.  There were so many Top Forty classic songs on the charts this week in 1969 including:  Can't Get Next To You-Temptations,  Suspicious Minds-Elvis,  Come Together-Beatles,  Green River-C.C.R.,  Honky Tonk Woman-Rolling Stones,  and Hot Fun In the Summertime-Sly & the Family Stone.I was just a 'wee-Nee' 51 years ago, however, I can vividly remember riding around on the tractor with my dad during Fall harvest.  The radio was always on in the barn and when we would jump in the truck.  It seemed that Sugar Sugar by the Archies was on the radio all of the time.  My dad loved music and even though he was a fan of music from the 40's and 50's, he often would tell me that he liked a song that he heard on the stations that I listened to.  He would even come home with a record for our collection after he heard a song on the radio that he liked. My love of music came from my dad.

I will be in the studio this Saturday night and hope to hear from you.  You can request anything from the fifties through the eighties during that time.  Perhaps you will be the winner of trivia.  We will have some fun whenever the 'magic cow bell'  rings.  Now that it is getting colder, you may have to move inside from the campfires to the fire places while you listen to Those Were The Days on Saturday night.  I listened on line a bit last week while I was playing with the grandbabies.   I am going to try to teach them about good music.
