The Memories Are Here

Last week, I asked (on Facebook) listeners to submit song requests. I was very surprised with the results. ONE person, Cathy Johnson, asked for a song very dear to her.

I’m happy to play that song for her today. As for the rest of the songs on this long medley, they are, for the most part, connected to this date in rock and roll history.

Hold The Phone! Yesterday I received an excellent set of requests from Mary Helen Hawthorne and I’ll get to those next week! That’s TWO!

    I don’t see (or read) all of your Facebook posts, so I missed the request one. I will send you a few by IM later today. Loved this Throwback Thursday medley. It’s funny how I have forgotten many of these songs, but when I hear them, my memory comes back. Thank you, Ray!

      I honestly thought of you when I played the Johnny Cymbal song!

    A day late, listening, but these were great again. Love The Base Man, and so sad that Otis Redding died so young-such a great voice. So, when did Perkins & Harrison get together? Good song, don’t remember it. On another subject, how about some country rock, sometime, maybe A Good Hearted Woman or Steve Earle(Copperhead Road or Guitar Man)?

      Thanks, Pat 🥰
      Perkins and Harrison recorded that song in 1996, a couple of years before Carl’s death.
      Thank you for the requests!
