Lonely Days Lonely Nights

I will never understand why this song has almost disappeared from the airwaves.  "Lonely Days Lonely Nights" was the Bee Gees first top 5 hit in the USA, reaching #3 on the Hot 100 in 1970, and it's the song that really established the Bee Gees as a major force in the music industry.  Plus it's a great song and truly captures the essence of the Bee Gees amazing vocals...

Happy Jack

The song "Happy Jack" was released as a single in 1966 by the British rock band The Who.  The song was #3 in Britain and #1 in Canada, and was the Who's first top-40 hit in the USA in early 1967.  The song was also a staple of Who concerts until 1970.  So the question is... how can the Who's first hit record be forgotten?

Everything...

In 1968 the Association was flying high, they'd had several big hits and three very successful albums.  Their fourth album "Birthday" immediately produced a top ten hit on the Hot 100, "Everything That Touches You".  Unfortunately, it was their last big hit, however the band remained a top concert draw for many years, long into the 70's.  They also became a big hit on the oldies tours and are still touring today.  But for some reason, their last big hit song became a forgotten oldie, "Everything That Touches You" is sure to tickle your memory!

Stand By Me

Today, April 8th 1963, John Lennon's son Julian was born.  Hard to believe John Lennon's son is 52. Anyway that gives me an excuse to play a John Lennon forgotten oldie, and I never pass up that opportunity!  "Stand By Me" has been recorded over 400 times. It's been a R&B #1 with Ben E. King, a country #1 with Mickey Gilley, and a top 20 rock hit with John Lennon in 1975.  One of my all time favorites, mostly forgotten today.

Congrats Bucky!!

The Badgers had a great 2014-2015 season!  Finishing 2nd in the country  is an outstanding accomplishment, and we all came to know and love all the members of this great team!  Looking forward to next year, and looking forward to a great career for La Crosse's own Bronson Koenig!  I still think the Badgers were the better team... others do too.
