Lost Records Of The 1980's

Saturday night during Those Were The Days on WRCO FM 100.9,  I will opening up my 45 r.p.m. carrying case and spinning some of the great records from that era that don't get requested very often.  During that decade, I spent time as a mobile d.j. and there were many records that were popular dance requests but now seem to have faded into obscurity.  MTV played a big role in songs being discovered.  At our swinging bachelor pad in the early 80's,  the 24 hour music channel was on all 24 hours.  Some of my favorite songs included:  Frida-I Know There's Something Going On,  Taine Cain-Hold On,  Manfred Mann-Runner,  OXO-Whirley Girl,  Haircut 100-Love Plus One, and Chilliwack-My Girl (Gone Gone Gone). Some of the popular 80's records to play in the bars back then included:  Girls With Guns-Tommy Shaw,  Stay In Time-Off Broadway,  What I Like About You-Romantics,  Autograph-Turn Up The Radio,  The Cheaters (a Madison Wisconsin band)-Easy To Please Me,  and Andy Taylor-Take It Easy.  During this holiday weekend, I will be playing some of those vinyl classics.  You can request a song from the fifties through the eighties.  Perhaps you will come up with one of your favorite 80's songs that you don't hear anymore.  The trivia line will also be open for you to take a shot at winning a trivia prize.  This Saturday night we will have another radio party, and you are invited!
