This holiday weekend, KOOL will spotlight the biggest songs that ushered in Summers of the past.  It’s a “3-PLAY MEMORIAL DAY FLASHBACK WEEKEND!”  And, since everyone is checking out early (mentally, if not physically), we’ll kick start the festivities Friday at NOON.  Every hour, KOOL will play the top 3 songs on the charts from each Memorial Day of the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s!

This is the music you heard on the radio at all those barbecues and pool parties!  From Aretha Franklin to Johnny Hates Jazz.  From “Frankenstein” to “The Lady in Red.”  Lionel Richie will sing “Hello.”  And, The Jackson 5 “Never Can Say Goodbye.”  Some songs you’ll remember well.  Others, you may have forgotten!

Here are the years we’ll spotlight:
