Summer Of '81 (One Of The Greatest Summers)

This week on WRCOs' Those Were The Days we will check out the hot happenings from the Summer of 1981.  I think it was one of the best ever in terms of music, tv, and movies.  We will prove our point on this Saturday nights show.  Big songs on the radio came from such acts as: Loverboy,  Moody Blues,  Pat Benatar,  REO Speedwagon, Foreigner, and more.  We will hear the music and from some of the artists that were enjoying Summer hits in 1981.

 

Top movies included:  Mel Brook's History Of The World Part One,  Bill Murray in Stripes,  Raiders Of The Lost Ark,  the James Bond action film For Your Eyes Only,  Cheech and Chong's Nice Dreams,  and The Great Muppet Caper.  I watched all of these in downtown Richland Center and later at the Starlite 14 Drive In (one of our sponsors).

 

We will feature an open phone line all night for your choice requests and you can win a cool prize when we play trivia.  Hear the best of the 50's through the 80's pop radio music on this weeks Those Were The Days from app: 6:00 p to Midnight.

 

I hope to year from you this week.
