Rolling through the HIT WOMEN OF ROCK & ROLL WEEKEND – it’s the lady who can be sweet AND scary – Madonna:
In a few days – it’s a 70’s FLASHBACK WEEKEND – can you say “Groooovy“? It all starts Friday at 3pm Eastern only on Hit Oldies
Being Queen Of Soul is an undisputed title when it comes to Aretha Franklin, but we like to count her as one of the top HIT WOMEN OF ROCK & ROLL. There’s plenty of Aretha thus weekend – on Hit Oldies!
A big success in Europe during the mid 1970s, in America most people thought of Debbie Harry & Blondie as just another New Wave band. That was until 1978 and the release of Parallel Lines. A strings of major hits after that makes her one of our favorite HIT WOMEN OF ROCK & ROLL of the 80s!
Did you know that aside from being on HAPPY DAYS, Suzi Quatro was the first female bass player to become a rock star? That qualifies her to be a HIT WOMAN OF ROCK & ROLL in our book!
Talk about “found footage”! When MONKEES series creators Bob Rafelson and Bert Schneider shot the un-aired 16mm pilot, they had no ideas we’d find it decades later. It starts off with some charming B&W screen test footage from Davy Jones and Michael Nesmith, then still going by his stage name “Michael Blessing” but credited here as Nesmith. (Micky Dolenz, however was called “Micky Braddock”)
Plus there are some great versions of the theme by Tommy Boyce and Bobby Hart, too!
