TWTD Salutes The Stones

This year will mark the 55th anniversary of the Rolling Stones first chart hit in America.  When Not Fade Away made the Billboard Hot 100 in the Spring of 1964,  the Stones were on the way to becoming stars all over the world.  They are set to embark on another tour this year.  The fact that they are still together and making music after all this time easily makes them the 'greatest rock and roll band of all time'.  On this weeks Saturday night Those Were The Days radio show,  I will be pulling out a few Rolling Stones classics.  The most requested Stones song on my Saturday night show  is Paint It Black.  The tune was used in the movie Full Metal Jacket and was the theme of the television show Tour Of Duty which has helped keep it popular with other generations.  (I Can't Get No) Satisfaction is probably the number 2 all time Stones song that has been requested on FM 100.9.   My favorite tunes by Mick and Keith and the boys are mostly from the seventies.  Those faves include:  Tumbling Dice,  You Can't Always Get What You Want,  Angie,  It's Only Rock n' Roll,  and Beast Of Burden. I will be dragging some of the old vinyl with me this weekend.   Please give me a call Saturday night and request a song from the fifites through the eighties.  You can call for a Rolling Stones song or any old pop, rock, soul, or metal will do.  We will playing radio trivia so get ready to amaze your friends!    

Thanks to Dawn Kiefer and the staff at the Richland Observer for an article in last weeks paper about WRCO and our Those Were The Days program.  I bought five copies for my mother!
