This Week On TWTD

I have had the great opportunity to interview many of the legends of the first 35 years of rock and roll.  This week  I got the rare chance to talk with Clarence Carter.  It was a real treat and I look forward to featuring some of his comments on this Saturday nights program. 

Clarence was born in 1938 in Montgomery, Alabama.  He has been blind since the age of 11.  The loss of sight did not prevent him from becoming an accomplished musician.  His first major hit was 'Slip Away' in 1968 which hit number 6 on the Billboard Hot 100.  His biggest hit came two years later in 1970 when the song 'Patches' made it to number 4.  The song could have been Clarence Carter's life story, however, it was written by another one time Those Were The Days guest General Johnson.  Clarence Carter is still making music today and is looking for another hit.  Hear about his past hits and what he is doing now on this weeks show. 

 

We will also play trivia, feature song dedications,  and have another rock and roll party this Saturday night.  Request a song and try to stump the d.j. !  I love it when that happens.  You can win great prizes and impress your friends, family, and me.   The show starts shortly after 6:00 and runs until Midnight on WRCO FM 100.9 Saturday night.  We hope to hear from you this week and weekend.
