Top Forty Fan Favorites From 1971

Those Were the Days on Wrco  FM 100.9 and Wrco.com will be teaming with forgottenhits.com for a look back at 1971.  This Saturday night between six and midnight we will go parking in 1971.  Earlier this year I asked listeners to vote on their favorites from that year and Kent Kotal, the writer of forgotten hits, asked his readers to chime in.  With over five thousand votes (there was no fraud)  we have determined the forty favorites.  I will also play many honorable mentions and guilty pleasures from the year of '71.  Kent will join me for a 50th anniversary salute to a memorable time for pop culture.  As my Those Were the Days show marks its 35th year this fall, I am reflecting on the many famous folks that have agreed to be interviewed on the program.  There will be plenty of archived interview segments played back this Saturday nightl.  A few of the artists that had hits in '71 are no longer with us.  It will be good to hear their voices again.  Some of my favorite sound bytes during the special will include:  Jerry Reed,  David Cassidy,  David Gates,  Gayle McCormick (of Smith),  B.J. Thomas,  Pete Rivera (Rare Earth),  Joey Molland (Badfinger) Burton Cummings (Guess Who),  Mark Lindsay,  and Cory Wells and Chuck Negron (Three Dog Night).

We will not be taking your requests during this Saturday nights show. Even though you can't add to the playlist, I sure hope you will tune in and check it out.  There are so many songs from 1971 that are favorites of mine including:  Get It On-Chase,  Joy To the World-Three Dog Night,  Brown Sugar-Rolling Stones,  It Don't Come Easy-Ringo Starr, What Is Life?- George Harrison,  Have You Seen Her-Chi-Lites,  Me and You and a Dog Named Boo-Lobo,  Roll On-New Colony Six,  Sooner Or Later-Grass Roots,  Wont Get Fooled Again-Who,  Walk Away-James Gang,  Love Her Madly-Doors,  Day After Day-Badfinger,  I Just Want To Celebrate-Rare Earth,  Dont Pull Your Love-Hamilton-Joe Frank-and Reynolds,  Do You Know What I Mean-Lee Michaels,  and Signs-Five Man Electrical Band.  Wrco 100.9 and Wrco.com is where the cool kids will gather Saturday night between six and midnight to hear the greatest songs ever put on vinyl.  The forgottenhits.com-Those Were the Days salute to 1971 is going to be a real bash!

1971 music was great!

I graduated in 1971 and that is (in my opinion) the best year ever for music. Your tv themes countdown with Kent Kotal of forgottenhits.com was a good one and I am sure this one will be.
