Summer Of 1974

Saturday night will be here soon and I am fired up to feature this weeks chart from 1974 during my Those Were the Days radio show.  That summer I was right in the middle of collecting every record I could buy using my hard earned hay making money.  Some of those records I still play on WRCO FM 100.9 and dot com!  A few of my faves from this weeks chart include:  Rock Your Baby-George McCrae,  Rikki, Don't Lose That Number-Steely Dan,  Band On the Run-Wings,  Waterloo-Abba,  Taking Care of Business-B.T.O.,  Already Gone-Eagles,  I'm the Leader Of the Gang-Brownsville Station,  Sundown-Gordon Lightfoot,  Rock The Boat-Hues Corporation, and The Air That I Breathe-Hollies.  I had my first crush that summer.  It wasn't Marsha Brady,  Laurie Partridge,  Marie Osmond,  Ginger or Mary Ann,  it was a young lady that visited our farm with her family for a week.  My heart broke when she had to leave, and I  remember her when I play The Air That I Breathe!  

You can request a song from any of the decades that we play this Saturday night.  We have made so many new friends since our station began streaming all programs.  Last week we talked with listeners from other U.S. states.  Truck driver Chris wins the award for calling in from the greatest distance away from Richland Center.  He was in upstate New York and requested a song from REO Speedwagon.  The trivia games and the greatest records ever recorded make Saturday night a great deal of fun.  I hope you will join the 'cool kids' party between six and midnight.
