Way Back To 1959 On TWTD

The music of the late fifties seems to be fading away more each year.  It is hard to find it on the radio dial.  We try to spin a few fifties tunes, however, our playlist during Those Were The Days is based on listener requests.  This weekend on the show we will remind you of how good some of those songs are.  I will spin a few records from the Billboard chart this weekend all of those years ago in 1959.  The music world was still reeling from the loss of J.P. Richardson, Richie Valens, and Buddy Holly in a plane crash earlier that year.  Buddy was on the chart with his last major hit, It Doesn't Matter Anymore.  A few other song favorites from this weekend in '59 include: I Need Your Love Tonight-Elvis,  It's Late-Ricky Nelson,  Sea Cruise-Frankie Ford,  Fabian-Turn Me Loose,  Sorry (I Ran All The Way Home) - The Impalas, and Almost Grown-Chuck Berry.  Along with a tribute to 1959,  I will be taking requests from the four decades of hits that we feature each week on Those Were The Days.  The weather is suppose to be very nice for Easter weekend.  Perhaps family and friends will be gathered around campfires and on front porches while they tune in to FM 100.9  Saturday night between six and midnight.  We will have updates on the Easter Bunnies progress during the evening.  Hopefully the Solid Gold Dancers don't scare him away!
