Party Like Its 1983

In 1983 the mobile dj business was booming.  I was rolling in up to 50 dollars a night!  By the time I went and bought the latest songs on 45 rpm records, and bought gas, I almost broke even.  It was a great time for music with MTV influences and dance tracks ruling the charts.  This week on Those Were the Days, you can join me in a simpler time.  The best of the fifties through the eighties will be back on the air.  We will stop and park for a little while in 1983.  Our curfew is Midnight, so we will have you home by than.  Some of my faves from the Summer of 1983 include:  Our House-Madness,  Is There Something I Should Know-Duran Duran,  1999-Prince,  Cuts Like A Knife-Bryan Adams,  She's A Beauty-The Tubes,  Rock Of Ages-Def Leppard, and Rock and Roll Is King-ELO. These were all favorites at the bars, schools, church socials,  softball tournaments, and parties that we invaded.  You will get a slice of that Summer when you tune in Those Were The Days this weekend.   It will be a blast from the past this Saturday night on WRCO FM 100.9 between six and Midnight when we take those old records off the shelf.  Perhaps you will be the winner of one of the six trivia prizes that we give away.

"I'm Still Standing" by Elton John

Hello Phil,

How about "I'm Still Standing" by Elton John? It's one of my favorites from 1983. As a kid this song was inspirational me and still is today!

Thank You, Craig Woodhouse
