Leftovers From 1967

Saturday night during my Those Were the Days radio show, I will happily go back to my favorite music year of all time (1967).  The fact that I love the music from that era has been well documented in this column.  I could easily pick a favorite 100 from every year from 1964 through 1989, but I would be hard pressed to limit 1967 to just 100 songs.  It was the start of FM radio and you had groups like the Doors, and the Who,which had songs that were played on both sides of the dial.  The Top 40 AM survey was chocked full of tunes from the Monkees,  Spanky and Our Gang,  the Turtles,  and the Cowsills.  Some of my favorites from this weekends '67 survey include:  Incense and Peppermints-Strawberry Alarm Clock,  Soul Man-Sam & Dave,  I Can See For Miles-the Who,  Daydream Believer-Monkees,  Everlasting Love-Robert Knight,  Summer Rain-Johnny Rivers,  Beautiful People-Bobby Vee,  and Itchycoo Park-Small Faces.

When you tune in to Those Were the Days Saturday night from six to midnight, you will hear some of the greatest pop radio tunes ever.  I will be in the studio to take your requests for fiftes through the early nineties tunes.  You could win a ticket for the upcoming For Kids From 1 to 92 concert in Richland Center featuring Steve March Torme.  There are other great prizes that could be yours!  I hope you will join me this holiday weekend for some radio mischief.  We are planning to end the year strong with guests and themes.We will cap off 2022 with our Those Were the Days Christmas party and listen for details on a special New Years Eve broadcast of Those Were the Days on WRCO FM 100.9 and
