Jamming With Tommy James

When you listen to WRCO FM 100.9 and wrco.com Saturday night, you will be able to hear my chat with the legendary Tommy James.  Tommy's songs are favorites with three generations.  They include:  Crystal Blue Persuasion,  Crimson and Clover,  Mony Mony,  I Think We're Alone Now,  Sweet Cherry Wine,  Hanky Panky, Mirage,  Three Times In Love , Draggin the Line and many more. Numerous artists have recorded Tommy's songs including:  Billy Idol,  Joan Jett,  Tiffany,  Prince,  Carlos Santana,  Bruce Springsteen,  REM, Tom Jones, Cher, and Dolly Parton.  BMI awarded Tommy after it was determined that his songs have been played more than 21 million times on the radio.  His critically acclaimed autobiography Me, The Mob and the Music is now in pre-production for a movie.   Despite all of these things going for him,  Tommy took time out of his schedule to call me this week for an interview.  It was the first time in thirty years that I have been honored to have him on the line.  When we play trivia Saturday night, you could be the winner of two tickets to see Tommy James at the Crystal Grand Music Theatre in Wisconsin Dells on October first!

I hope you will join me for Those Were the Days this Saturday night for our jam with Tommy.  Hear many of his hits and your special requests and dedications for tunes from the fifties through the eighties.  We will soon celebrate thirty-six years on the air.  It still only seems like yesterday when I played my first record on WRCO (it started on the wrong speed).  Since that time I have not gotten much better, but I love being on the air more than ever.  We will close out the month of September next Saturday night with a love letter to 1972.  That was the year I really started collecting records.  That is something that I still love doing after fifty years.  That is next week.  I hope you will join me for Tommy James and live trivia and requests Saturday night on WRCO FM 100.9 and wrco.com.
