Kisstory On Those Were The Days

Hey Rock n' Rollers!  Saturday night can't get here soon enough as we have much more radio fun lined up for Those Were Days on WRCO FM 100.9.  One of our long time listeners suggested that we do a show with Kiss as the feature band.  This will be a first for our program now in its 33rd year.  Even though Kiss is a favorite of mine, not everyone feels the same way about them.  When I was a youngster, someone loaned me a cassette of Kiss 'Alive'.  I was not a fan until I heard that album. I couldn't believe the energy of those live songs.  I still believe that might be the best live rock and roll album of all time.  Many of my friends liked Kiss and there were those that did not.  This subject would sometimes cause arguments.  I finally got to see them live in the early 80's and have since gone to six more Kiss concerts.  It is amazing how the crowd has changed through the years.  It went from high school and college age students in the 70's and evolved to parents and grandparents with their children.  It is much more of a family gathering than it used to be!  The Kiss guitar riffs blasted from the speakers of my '75 Ford Maverick with such albums as;  Destroyer, Rock and Roll Over,  Love Gun, and the greatest hits album Kiss Platinum.  They have been often requested on the Saturday night program.  Their biggest chart hits were Beth and Forever which were two of the groups few ballads.  A few Phil favorites include: Hard Luck Woman,  Shout It Out Loud,  I Love It Loud,  Detroit Rock City, and (of course) Rock and Roll All Night.   Paint up your face and get ready for a Saturday night spotlight on rock and roll hall of famers, Kiss.   I will be in the studio to take your requests and we will play trivia each of the six hours we are on the air.  This Saturday night between six and midnight we will fly back to the fifites through the eighites for some classic rock tunes on Those Were The Days.
