Holiday Weekend Of Hits

During Independence weekend, I hope you will listen to WRCO FM 100.9 and  Our retro Saturday is a blast from the past with Saturdays' With Simo in the afternoon and Those Were the Days at night.  It is a great opportunity to hear songs you have not listened to in a while.  We get responses from all ages.

Saturday night I will be spinning the best of the fifties through the eighties during Those Were the Days.  Two of my favorite bands will be featured.  They both have patriotic names (Paul Revere and the Raiders and the New Colony Six).  The Raiders were on television many times in the 60's.  WRCO hosted Paul Revere and company a few years ago at Krouskop park.  It was one of the most entertaining shows during the 19 year run of  Star Spangled Celebration.  We also twice hosted the New Colony Six in Richland Center.  Saturday night hear from six members of that group from our interview archives.  They will all share memories of their days on the road and the radio.  

You will be able to request your fifties through the eighties favorites Saturday.  We will play trivia and have a blast.  I also hope you will join me on Court Street in Richland Center during the Summer Bash Saturday.  I will be the guest of Mastodon Records and owner Craig Woodhouse and we will be spinning vinyl records in the street leading up to the opening act, the Vilas Craig Band.  We will start the music around 1 pm and Vilas will take the stage at 2:30 p.
