Get Your Kicks In 1966!

On Saturday nights Those Were The Days I will be spinning some of the top hits from the Spring of 1966.  What a great time for Top Forty radio!  There were so many two minute melodies on the radio waves.  This Saturday nights chart will come from one of my favorite radio stations when I was a 'Wee Nee'.  WISM 1480 AM out of Madison Wisconsin played so many regional and national records that weren't always big hits across the nation.  Find out what the top hits were in the Mad city during the Spring of 1966 during WRCOs' Those Were The Days.  My special guest will be Ray Graffia of the great Chicago group The New Colony Six.  The Colony was enjoying its first radio hits in 1966 including the often requested 'I Confess'.  Ray will talk about a special benefit show that the group will be at in April.  Here are the details.

 

SUNDAY APRIL 19th 2015 - At the "Arcadia Theatre" in St. Charles, IL. The NC6 in CONCERT- Their 50th Rock n Roll Anniversary.
