The Summer Of 1965 Top Forty Glory Days

Top Forty radio in 1965 featured so many songs that are still well rememberd today.  During this weeks Those Were The Days show on WRCO FM 100.9, I will be digging out some of the best from the Summer of '65.  WRCO FM 100.9 went on the air for the first time that year.  WRCO AM 1450 first took the air in the Fall of 1949.  AM radio was king for many years.  The FM band was still not popular for a long time, however, Southwest Wisconsin listeners that actually had a receiver found out how much clearer the music sounded.  Some of my faves from 1965 Summertime include:  I Like It Like That-Dave Clark Five,  I Can't Help Myself-Four Tops,  I Want Candy-Strangeloves,  Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me-Mel Carter,  I'm A Fool-Dino, Desi, & Billy, and Help -The Beatles.   We all can use a little fun.  Saturday night is my favorite time of the week.  There are so many listeners that have become like family and if they don't call, I worry about them!  We always have a blast.

It is great to know that some people do remember the trivial things that I do.  After we asked about the peanut butter spread known as Koogle Saturday night,  several listeners checked in to say they remember eating that stuff in the '70's.  A few wondered if they can still buy that.  I googled Koogle and it does not look like it is still manufactured.  It seems that it has gone the way of another 70's favorite, Pizza Spinners.  Those Were The Days radio features the hits and the trivia every Saturday night from six to midnight.   Come along with us to happy times each weekend during WRCOs' Retro Saturdays.

Thanks for the music!




Valerie recommends WRCO Radio: "We never miss a Saturday night with Phil Nee. He plays the best music and has some pretty tough but fun trivia questions. Also, we love listening to our buddy Chandler Brindley. Keep up the great job WRCO!"
