Time Sweep Of The Fifties Through The Eighties

This Saturday night on WRCO FM 100.9 we will go 'old school' once again on Those Were The Days.  This time we will feature a time sweep.  We will play the top hits of the weekend starting in 1957 and than we will jump ahead to 1962, 1967, 1972, 1977, 1982, and 1987.  These were some of the best years for Top 40 rock and roll.  See what I mean this weekend between 6 p and Midnight.  I love the variety of songs that we play each week.  That is the way pop radio used to be.  It was like a K-tel record of original hits/original stars.  It was the K-tel company that fueled the fire for me.  I was a radio listener before that, however, when I bought the album 'Believe In Music' in 1972 it made me want to go out and find more of my favorite music on black vinyl and play it on my Airline model stereo at home.  You would get everything from Eric Clapton, Slade, Bobby Vinton, and Donny Osmond on one long playing album! K-tel went on to produce many albums of greatest hits.  Those Were The Days on WRCO is a lot like those great albums from back in the day.  We will not be taking your requests this week.  Stay tuned for a special show with many memorable tracks that we don't often get a chance to play.        Phil
