Warming Up In 1979

In November of 1979, I was a high socks, tight shorts, pimple faced, forward on the Ithaca junior varsity basketball team.  That season I was the leading scorer during warm ups!   We did not win much.  I have heard that sometimes you can learn more from a loss.  If that is the case, that team should have been brilliant.  We were not.  We were good at making mix tapes that we could listen to in the locker room.  Favorite tunes from November of 1979 include:  Bad Case Of Loving You-Robert Palmer,  Cruel To Be Kind-Nick Lowe,  One Way Or Another-Blondie,  Lovin', Touchin', Squeezin',-Journey,  Heartache Tonight-Eagles,  Good Girls Don't-Knack,  Dream Police-Cheap Trick,  Drivers Seat-Sniff n the Tears, Don't Bring Me Down-E.L.O.  and Lets Go-Cars.   Those songs made up much of the soundtrack for my formative years.  This week I will be going back to 1979 and I will have a fun time although my 1979 shorts wont fit (they were tight back in the day).

Not only will I be playing hits from the last month of the 70's, but we will also spin all of the tunes you love from the fifties through the eighties during Those Were the Days on WRCO FM 100.9 and wrco.com from six until midnight Saturday night.  I hope you will make a request.

Enjoyed the program

Last weeks show brought home many memories. I heard many songs that don’t often play. It is good to hear tunes that aren’t the same each week.
