November Of 1966-Great Music & Cartoons!

Some of the great hits of the sixties were released during 1966.  The Billboard chart from the second weekend of November in 1966 featured such tunes as; Poor Side Of Town-Johnny Rivers,  Last Train To Clarksville-Monkees,  What Becomes Of The Broken Hearted-Jimmy Ruffin,  Psychotic Reaction-Count Five,  and Walk Away Renee-Left Banke.   I was just a wee-Nee when those songs were on the radio.  You may not believe this, however, I swear this is true.  The song Winchester Cathedral was a popular hit in November of 1966 and I remember my dad bringing home this song on a 45 rpm record.  I was only three years old! While holding my nose to sound even more nasal, I would attempt to imitate the New Vaudeville Bands' greatest hit.  Most of my memories throughout my life involve a song. The year of 1966 was an incredible year for cartoons.  On CBS you could watch such classics as: The Heckle and Jeckle Cartoon Show,  Tennessee Tuxedo,  Tom and Jerry, and Quick Draw McGraw.  The NBC network featured the Jetsons,  Atom Ant, Secret Squirrel,  Underdog, and Top Cat.  The lineup on ABC included:  The Beatles cartoon, Magilla Gorilla, Bugs Bunny,  and Hoppity Hooper.  If you left the television set on until 12:30 you could watch American Bandstand!   This week on Those Were The Days, we will visit that magical year.  I am inviting you to join the fun on WRCO FM 100.9 between six and midnight.  You will be able to request a song from the fifties through the eighties and possibly a trivia prize could be yours!  Lets celebrate living life in the Driftless Area with Those Were The Days this Saturday night.
