Feel Fine In '69 Saturday Night

This Saturday night on Those Were the Days, we will stop and park in 1969.  One of our good listeners requested that we feature highlights from the chart of 52 years ago. This is a great idea since it has been a while since we have spent some air time back than.  What a time it was for radio and television.  On t.v. some of my favorite shows were still featuring new episodes including: Green Acres,  Beverly Hillbillies, Get Smart,  I Dream Of Jeannie,  Family Affair,  Carol Burnett Show,  Doris Day Show,  Here Come The Brides,  Bewitched,  Ironside,   Wild Wild West,  My 3 Sons, Hogans Heroes,  and Mannix. It would make me very happy if  I could just watch reruns of all of those shows for the rest of my life and not watch anything else!  The radio was always on in 1969 while I played with my Tinker Toys, and all of my imaginary friends.  Some of my favorite songs from this weeks chart include:  Stand-Sly and the Family Stone,  Gimme Gimme Good Lovin-Crazy Elephant,  Sweet Cherry Wine-Tommy James,  Morning Girl-Neon Philharmonic,  Get Back-Beatles,  These Eyes-Guess Who,  Black Pearl-Sonny Charles & the Checkmates,  Special Delivery-1910 Fruitgum Company,  Lodi-Creedence Clearwater Revival,  Heather Honey-Tommy Roe,  Too Busy Thinking About My Baby-Marvin Gaye,  Grazin In the Grass-Friends of Distinction,  and The River Is Wide-Grass Roots.  It will be an honor to spin some of those 45's during this Saturdays' radio show.

I will be in the studio to have some fun this Saturday night and to hear what you want me to play.  You can request any pop radio hit that we can find from the 50's through the 80's.  Listen and win tickets, food, and fun prizes, when we play trivia during the six hour music radio show on WRCO FM 100.9 and wrco.com.  Congratulations to our winner of the Bon Jovi Encore Live performance at the Star Lite 14 Outdoor Theater.   Troy proved that he is a great fan of the band and I know he will enjoy the show.  The gates will open around 4:15 Saturday afternoon and there will be a warm up d.j. and the concert will be shown at dusk.  Join us for special giveaways and promotions on Those Were The Days.
