March Of 1975-Those Were The Days!

On WRCO FM 100.9 this Saturday night we will take those old records off the shelf again.  We will stop and park during the night in 1975.  That slice of Top 40 hits is an eclectic mix of 70's pop music gems.  Hard rock, soft rock, country, comedy, and r & b, all were blended together.  It was similar to using Roncos' Whip-O-Matic mixing everything up.  We will have to use the Ronco Record Vac and Record Selector so those hits from '75 will be ready to play.  Many of my favorite hits from this weekend in 1975 I heard playing over the bus speakers.  Bus 7 (the 2nd Sextonville route) had the coolest bus in the Ithaca fleet.  Mr. Wanless had an 8-track player/FM stereo installed with two speakers mounted on the front near the roof and 2 more in the back.  He would make mix tapes and we could tune in some cool stations as well.  Some bus favorites this week in 1975 included: Black Water-Doobie Brothers,  Lady Marmalade-LaBelle,  Don't Call Us, We'll Call You-Sugarloaf,  Roll On Down The Highway-B.T.O., Have You Never Been Mellow?-Olivia Newton-John, Best Of My Love-Eagles,  and No No Song-Ringo Starr.  We wont just stay parked in 1975 on FM 100.9 this Saturday night.  You can request anything from the fifties through the eighties during Those Were The Days.  Get ready for trivia and the chance to amaze your friends when you win!  All the cool kids will be listening to WRCO Saturday night.
