Spring Fling Saturday Night

It is so awesome to be able to be in the Spring season!  When I think about this time of year, I always think of certain songs.  There are many classic rock songs about Spring.  Many songs that were popular as Winter came to an end are etched in our memories.  I go right back to those Springs of long ago when I hear songs such as: Let Your Love Flow-Bellamy Brothers,  Seasons In The Sun-Terry Jacks,  Joy To The World-Three Dog Night, 65 Love Affair-Paul Davis, and I Love Rock And Roll-Joan Jett.   During this Saturday nights' Those Were The Days, I will be pulling out a few songs that are forever tied to this new season.   Thank you for all of the fun over the Winter season.  The Saturday night oldies show is my escape from all of the cold and ice.  We are always amazed and honored when we make new friends that have never listened to the show.  It is also with great sadness that we say goodbye this week to a great friend, Jeff Peper, who passed away Monday.   He was one of the most dedicated listeners that I have ever known.  He had to rig up his radio to hear us in the hospital the last couple of Saturday nights.  From now on there will be certain songs that I play which will make me think of 'Sarge'. That will make me smile and remind me of our good talks.  He also was a guest d.j. twice as a part of the G.R.A.C.E radio benefit auction when he gave us great donations.   I believe he will still hear all of the fun we have on WRCO FM 100.9 on Saturday nights. He will surely find a radio in heaven to rig up so that he can hear us.   I will be in the studio Saturday night to spin the best of the fifties through the eighties and play trivia.   We will celebrate Spring and the best music ever placed on vinyl records.
