Top 40 Heaven In '67

I have mentioned several times on this blog and on the radio that there has never been and will never be another pop music year like 1967.  There was such a variety of music and artists at the peak of their creativity.  Saturday night during Those Were The Days, we will check out the chart and what was on the radio at the start of April in '67. It was a time when Frank Sinatra could have a hit right along side the Blues Magoos or the Strawberry Alarm Clock.   Some of my favorite memories from that chart include:  Sweet Soul Music-Arthur Conley,  A Little Bit Me, A Little Bit You-Monkees,  Penny Lane-Beatles,  Happy Together-Turtles,  I've Been Lonely Too Long-Young Rascals,  Ups and Downs-Paul Revere and the Raiders,  I'm A Man-Spencer Davis Group,  You Got What It Takes-Dave Clark Five,  Western Union-Five Americans,  There's A Kind Of Hush-Hermans Hermits, and I Think We're Alone Now-Tommy James and the Shondells.  I could list forty or more songs from this weekends survey from 55 years ago!  We will play a few of those and your rock and roll requests on WRCO Fm 100.9 and Saturday night between six and midnight.  I will share more of our archived interviews including some amazing artists that had hits in 1967.  Look for and Kent Kotal's posting each Saturday this year.  He has been featuring interview highlights from our 35 plus years of Those Were The Days.

It has been great to catch up with our T.W.T.D. listeners.  My post hospital rehab is going well and I was able to squeeze in a full six hour show last weekend.  Thanks for a memorable night.  Our online listeners seem to be growing and we even had a trivia winner with a Michigan address.  We have some fun stuff lined up for this month and I hope you will check in each week.
