January 1965 Top Forty Classics

This Saturday night on WRCO FM 100.9, I will be pulling out more gems from Top Forty radios' glory days.  During my Those Were The Days radio show,  you will be able to request anything from the fifties through the eighties.  The featured chart will be from the second week of January 1965.  I am a big fan of the British Invasion groups and several had hits all of those years ago.  The Beatles were on top with I Feel Fine.  Considering they had debuted in America less that a year earlier, that record was very advanced from their first U.S. releases.  Some of Phil's other favorites from January of 1965 include:  Love Potion Number Nine-Searchers,  Sha La La-Manfred Mann, She's Not There-Zombies,  As Tears Go By-Rolling Stones,  and  All Day And All Of The Night-Kinks.  When I first began collecting records in the early 1970's, those were some of the first ones that I tried to find.   It was much more difficult to find older titles at that time.  We did not have the internet to see how common records were and how we could buy them.   Sometimes I would go to Saffell's music store in Richland Center and try to order them. Once in a while there would be a sale of Jukebox 45's. Those Were The Days of my wonderous world of discovering new and old songs for the first time.  I would take my 45's to my bedroom and imagine I was broadcasting a big market radio show.   That is what I still do after all of these years.  I pretend that I am doing a big time radio show!   Join the fun this Saturday night.  I will be in the studio, by the rotary dial telephone, so that I can take your requests and dedications.  You will also get the chance to play trivia.  Lets have a old rock party this Saturday night.   I will bring the records and you bring the Ski soda pop, Mallow Cups, Taco Doritos, Corn Curls, and Pepto-Bismol!
