Those Were The Days Salutes 1966

This Saturday night during Those Were The Days on WRCO FM 100.9, I will be going back to the drawer of 45's.  Between six and midnight you will be able to hear highlights from Top Forty radios' glory years.  I was just a 'wee Nee' when songs from 1966 were first on the radio, however, they were some of the first that I went in search of when I started collecting records in the early '70s.   Some of my faves from January of 1966 include:  She's Just My Style-Gary Lewis & the Playboys,  Over and Over-Dave Clark Five,  As Tears Go By-Rolling Stones,  A Must To Avoid-Herman's Hermits,  Just Like Me-Paul Revere and the Raiders,  Lies-Knickerbockers,  I Got You (I Feel Good)-James Brown,  and We Can Work It Out-Beatles.  I remember hearing some of these hits on long distant AM radio stations.  Some had specialized oldies shows in the early 70's that I would try to catch.  I always had a dream about playing those old hits on a radio program.  This came true in the Fall of 1986 and it is still a dream come true every Saturday night.

Those Were The Days will hit the airwaves with hits between six and midnight Saturday night.  It will be a full length show.  The Packers can't keep us down for two weeks in a row!  Thanks for staying up for last weeks program.  We still had fun and took many fun requests during a 1/2 show.  The six hour best of the fifties through the eighties will live again.  We will play trivia and have a great time on WRCO FM 100.9 and wrco.com.
