Remembering Bobby Vee

One of the first recording artists that I had a chance to interview on the program was Bobby Vee.  Over the years he joined us a few times by phone.  He performed in Richland Center in 2006 with the Crickets and Tommy Roe.  Those that were there that night saw rock and roll history.  Bobby announced in 2012 that he was in the early stages of Alzheimers disease and he passed away on Monday of this week. Bobby was always a great interview for me on Those Were The Days.  He could talk first hand about other artists such as Bob Dylan or Paul McCartney.  The Beatles recorded 'Take Good Care Of My Baby'.  A young Bob Dylan played in Bobby Vee's band back in 1959.  Elvis told him that he had a couple of Bobby Vee records on his jukebox. He never forgot us here in the Badger State.     A few of his records were first given a boost with airplay in Wisconsin including his 1967 hit 'Come Back When Your Grow Up'.  We will remember Bobby Vee during our Those Were The Days get together Saturday night.  I will be in the studio to take your old time rock and roll requests.  We will play a few of our favorite Halloween records on this weekends show.  Join me between 6 pm and Midnight on WRCO FM 100.9 for Those Were The Days Saturday night.
