Rock n' Rodeo Hits

Richland Center has long been the host city for State Finals Rodeo each summer.  The 63rd edition will take place this weekend at the Richland County Fairgrounds.  It is great to welcome the cowboys and cowgirls and their family, friends, and fans.  We will see many fans at the annual Rodeo parade which steps off at 10:30 Saturday morning.  Join Ron Fruit and me at the downtown review station as we announce the names and recognize the floats.  Saturday night I will be in the studio to play some rock n' rodeo hits.  Here are some examples of our mix tape theme.....Long Tall Texan-Beach Boys,  Back In the Saddle-Aerosmith,  Wild Horses-Rolling Stones,  The Horse-Cliff Nobles & Co.,  Rhinestone Cowboy-Glen Campbell,  A Horse With No Name-America,  Wanted Dead Or Alive-Bon Jovi, and Wild Wild West-Escape Club.  We will lasso the hits of the fifties through the eighties during this Saturday nights' Those Were The Days radio show.

We will also pay tribute to Jim Seals of Seals & Crofts.  I have always enjoyed the music that they put out during their hit making years.  This is what the Associated Press sent out this week...

NEW YORK (AP) — Jim Seals, who teamed with fellow musician "Dash" Crofts on such 1970s soft-rock hits as "Summer Breeze," "Diamond Girl" and "We May Never Pass This Way Again," has died at age 80. His death was announced Tuesday by several people including John Ford Coley, who had formed the '70s duo England Dan and John Ford Coley with Seals' older brother Dan. Seals and Darrell George "Dash" Crofts were Texas natives who had known each other since they were teenagers and had previously been in the Champs. They formed Seals and Crofts in the late 1960s.
 
I hope that you will join our show between six and midnight Saturday night on WRCO FM 100.9 and wrco.com.  Together we will put together another awesome playlist.  You could be one of our trivia V.I.P.'s!

Cheese Roll

Sister Mary said you were discussing the cheese roll. My daughter attended it. Said it was "wild mayhem". I have video if you would like me to send them to you.
