Radio Heaven In 1967

It has been a little while since I have visted 1967 during my Those Were The Days radio show.  On this blog we have many times mentioned what a great year for music '67 was.  Music changed a great deal in 1968.  It could be argued that 1967 was Top 40 radios' last great year.  There were so many 2 to 3 minute melodic hits on the radio.  Saturday night between six and midnight, I will be dropping in a few choice cuts from this weeks Billboard chart from all of those years ago. A group from Memphis had the number one song.  It was one of the shortest songs ever to top the survey. 'The Letter' by the Box Tops clocked in at just under 2 minutes and wound up to be the biggest of the year.  Other Phil favorites from this week in 1967 include:  Come Back When You Grow Up-Bobby Vee,  Never My Love-Association, Brown Eyed Girl-Van Morrison,  I Had A Dream-Paul Revere and the Raiders,  Gimme A Little Sign-Brenton Wood,  Gettin' Together-Tommy James,  Things I Should Have Said-Grass Roots,  Expressway To Your Heart-Soul Survivors,  Blues Theme-Davie and the Arrows,  and Museum -Hermans Hermits.  I hope you will join us for radio fun this Saturday night and request something from 1967 or from any of the years that we feature.  We play stuff from the fifties through the early '90's. 

We have fun with trivia every time we get together. Listen for the 'Magic Cow Bell' on Saturday night which signals another question. Those Were the Days can be heard on WRCO FM 100.9 and each Saturday night.  It is a part of the stations 'retro' Saturdays.  It follows music and headlines of the past on the Backtrackin show that airs at 5:30. I have enjoyed hearing Saturdays With Simo on Saturday afternoons.  Chris Simonson plays great tunes from the fifties through the seventies.  Many of those tunes you may have first heard on WRCO radio all of those years ago.  That program will now be starting at 12:30 and it will air until 5 pm each week.  I hope that you will make us a part of your Saturday.

I count my blessings each day.  My family welcomed a new granddaughter recently.  I hope you will join 'poor old grandpa Phil' on Saturday night.
