Rock Around The Clock History Saturday Night

On April 12th, 1954, Bill Haley And His Comets recorded "Rock Around The Clock" for Decca Records.  It is considered the first rock and roll song to top the charts.  This week on WRCOs' Those Were The Days we will remember that great history making tune. From our golden vault of interviews, hear from James Myers who was one of the writers of the song, and Marshall Lytle who was a member of Bill Haley's Comets.  We will say happy birthday to David Cassidy and John Kay of Steppenwolf.  Get ready to win some cool stuff when we play trivia.  Your classic rock and roll requests are only a phone call away Saturday night.  I hope to hear from you.  Our ratings should be better this week because we will not be going head to head with the Badger men's basketball team!
