Rockin' The Barn Radio In 1975

I heard many wonderful songs that I still love today on the radio in the barn.  The fact that it had tubes that needed to warm up meant that you would turn it on in the morning and guess the volume while you walked to the other end of the barn.  When it warmed up sometimes it was very loud, once in a while off the station, and sometimes the sound was not loud enough to be heard over the various barn noises.   When you got the station tuned correctly and the sound so that you could hear, the radio was on all day until the milking was done that night.  WRCO AM 1450 was the station that was loud enough to never fail.  Once in a while when dad wasn't paying attention I would turn the dial slightly to 1480 AM and get WISM Madison which was a great Top Forty station

WRCO FM 100.9 will play great hits from the fifties through the eighties on Those Were The Days Saturday night. We will stop for a time and park in January of 1975.  The chart was full of such comeback artists as Neil Sedaka, Paul Anka, and Frankie Valli.  Stevie Wonder, Grand Funk, The Eagles, and The Doobie Brothers were all in the top twenty. Put on your elevator shoes and your plaid pants this Saturday night.  We are going to have a party and your requests will be welcome.  Play trivia and be the first on your block to win a prize.  It will be a really cool, neat, dyn-no-mite,  radio show Saturday night on WRCO FM 100.9.
