Those Were The Days In Mid Sixties Milwaukee

Saturday night on FM 100.9  we will spend some time playing the songs from the fifties through the eighties that you request.  I will also share excerpts of an interview I recorded recently with John Galobich.  He was a member of a group that almost made it big.  The Richochettes had a few 45's that got played in Milwaukee and across Wisconsin and Illinois.  They opened shows for the Rolling Stones, Dave Clark Five,  the Mindbenders, and other big names of the 1960's.  John has great stories about that time in music and has written a couple of books.  Milwaukee had many great bands at that time including:  Esquires,  Legends,  Little Artie & the Pharoahs, Harvey Scales & the Seven Sounds, Messengers, and The Robbs.   We still play some of the records that these groups released.  In those days artists could cut a record and take it to the nearest radio station for airplay.  There were many charts that featured songs from local and regional groups that ranked right along with the Beatles and the biggest bands of the day.    I will attempt to take you back to that magical era this Saturday night during Those Were The Days on WRCO FM 100.9 starting at 6 pm. Get ready for trivia!  Thanks for reading.
