Spring Of 1969 Top Forty Heaven

This Saturday night during our Those Were The Days radio show, we will be doing our first tribute to 1969.  We have special nights planned this year which will pay homage to one of Top Forty's best years.  Kent Kotal from the website will join me later this year and we will both pick our favorite singles from the last year of the sixties.  ForgottenHits features the WLS Silver Dollar Survey for that week in 1969 each Sunday.  There have been some real cool tunes that have shown up during the first four months of the year. Those melodies take me back to playing with my Billy Blast-Off Space Man and his cool space vehicles or looking at my McDonalds Moon Map   Some of the big tunes this weekend fifty years ago included:  Dizzy-Tommy Roe,  Proud Mary-C.C.R., Galveston-Glen Campbell,  Build Me Up Buttercup-Foundations,  Things I'd Like To Say-New Colony Six,  Crimson and Clover-Tommy James,  Mendocino-Sir Douglas Quintet,  and I Got A Line On You-Spirit.   Whenever those songs came out of the radio,  I had to stop playing with my Hot Wheels race cars and listen for a while.  Many of those songs are better known today than when they were new.   This Saturday night it will be a pleasure to play those great hits on the radio again.  You can hear comments from some of the hit makers and those big records during Those Were The Days on WRCO FM 100.9.  I will be answering my rotary dial phone so that I can take your requests and we will be playing trivia during the six hour pop radio salute (listen for the 'Magic Cow Bell').   We will be playing all of your faves from the fifties through the eighties between six and midnight.
