Fall Of 1981 Featuring The Producers

"Starting at center..........Phil Nee...nee...nee...nee"    It was an exciting time during the Fall of 1981.  My amazing high school football career was winding down (it was amazing that I did not get hurt).   Our school was working on a Fall musical, Bye Bye Birdie, and I was appearing as Mr. Harry Macafee on that old Ithaca High School stage.  During my free time I was milking cows in the morning and evening.  Music was a big part of my time management. Cool Top Forty tunes would wake me up in the morning and put me to sleep at night. I met my future wife during that era.  We would remain friends for several years before actually becoming a couple. We have been married since 1987.   Some of the hot '81 tunes that were blasting from the '75 Ford Maverick dashboard included: Start Me Up-Rolling Stones,  Private Eyes-Hall and Oates,  Urgent-Foreigner,  I've Done Everything For You-Rick Springfield,  Super Freak-Rick James,  She' A Bad Mama Jama-Carl Carlton,  In Your Letter-Reo Speedwagon,  and Burnin' For You-Blue Oyster Cult.   This Saturday night on Those Were The Days, I will get the chance to play of few of those gems again.  Our guest on the phone will be Wayne Famous of the group the Producers.  They had four songs playing in rotation during the early days of MTV.  Only one made the Top 100 (What She Does To Me), however, they were heard a lot on Wisconsin radio stations with tunes such as; She Sheila,  What's He Got That I Aint Got? and I Love Lucy.  They played in many cities in the Badger state and were regulars at a Madison club known as Headliners.

This Saturday night I will be in the studio to take your phone call requests and trivia answers. It will again be an honor to play the best tunes from the fifties through the eighties.  We are 'old school' each and every Saturday night from six to midnight during Those Were the Days.
