Two Of My Favorite Groups

Saturday night on Those Were the Days, I will feature 2 of my favorite bands.  The Dave Clark Five and Bread.  It was an honor to interview Mike Smith of the DC5 in 2003.  Sadly it would be one of his last as he was injured in a fall at his home in Spain later that year.  Favorite segments of that rare interview will be posted Saturday on Kent Kotal's Forgotten Hits website.  That night I will feature more of the interview and outtakes with the legendary Mike Smith.  During our talk, I even had the chance to talk to Mike about my favorite DC 5 flip side.  Find out what it is during Those Were the Days.  The group Bread dominated the early '70's charts.  Many music lovers that are my age remember having an 8-track or cassette that contained the Best of Bread.  It was a must have during my dating years.  I was ready in case I got a date!   Group leader and principle songwriter David Gates joined me on the show in 1994.  David is now retired from music and this is another interview that I am proud to have conducted.   Forgotten Hits recently posted highlights of this interview and it will be a pleasure to revisit it on the radio and play a few hits from Bread.

I hope that you will join the rock and roll party Saturday night during Those Were the Days on WRCO FM 100.9 and wrco.com.  It will be a great chance to hook up with great friends and music.  There is such a wide range of ages that listen to our show.  I know for a fact that one requester last week recently turned 85.  We had a trivia winner that is 11 and another requester that is a freshman in high school and asked for a song from the Doors!  It is so great to know that my favorite music is going to live on for more generations.  I will be waiting all week for Saturday night.
