Those Were The Days With Richard Wiegel

This Saturday night on WRCO FM our Those Were The Days radio show will feature coments from Madison area musician Richard Wiegel.  He has a new cd called  'Wiegel Room' which features some awesome guitar work. It has 17 tracks of original instrumental tracks and the lead cut is called 'Buddy Holly'.  We will look back at Richards earlier work in memorable bands including:  The Bowery Boys,  Baby Grand, and Clicker.  I remember hearing 'Keep On Trying' from the first Clicker album on WISM in Madison.  I had no idea at the time that they were a local group.  It was later I learned of their roots in Southwestern and Southern Wisconsin and they hailed from such towns as Belmont and Darlington.  Cubby Tracy, who was the drummer for the group, joined us on Those Were The Days live in the studio way back in 1993.  Richard Wiegel will soon be celebrating fifty years in music!   I look forward to hearing from you this Saturday night.  The request line will be open for all six hours of the program and we will have a trivia stumper each hour.  We will keep it rocking for you this Saturday night from six until Midnight.
