Fun In '81

This Saturday night during Those Were The Days on WRCO FM 100.9 and, we will fly back to this weekend in 1981.  That Winter I was a power forward for the mighty Ithaca Bulldog basketball team.  I took a speaker from an old stereo and put a mini plug on it so that I could plug that into my cassette player.  Then I could play my mix tapes in the locker room or on the frosty windowed bus headed toward Brookwood, Lafarge, Kickapoo,  Wauzeka, Weston, De Soto, Seneca, or North Crawford.  Some favorites from this weekend in 1981 include:  Tryin To Live My Life Without You-Bob Seger,  Young Turks-Rod Stewart,  Our Lips Are Sealed-Go-Go's, Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic-Police,  Harden My Heart-Quarterflash,  Centerfold-J.Geils Band,  Shake It Up-Cars, and Poor Mans Son-Survivor.  I used to love to jam to those songs while I was tying up my short basketball shorts and pulling my white socks above my knees.

Those Were The Days will be blasting your favorite hits from the fifties through the eighties between six and midnight, Saturday night.  You can try to stump the d.j. (it happens often).  We will ring the trivia bell to announce our six pack of trivia questions..  This weekend will mark the second to the last Those Were The Days show of 2020. There will not be a show on December 19th.  We will blame the NFL for that as Green Bay is playing on a Saturday night that weekend and the Packer network requires us to carry eight hours of programming.  Our last show of the year will be December 26th.  Thanks for rocking all through the year and for all of these years.
