On ‘Tickets @ 2′ it’s Wild Cherry’s “Play That Funky Music.”

Wild Cherry was a hard rock band. They had a regular gig at the 2001 Club, and with Disco big in 1976, their sound didn’t go over well. After one show, a black audience member shouted, “Play some funky music white boy.” They wrote that phrase down on a bar order pad.

They got the idea for the group’s name from a box of cough drops.

When we play it between two and three we’ll take caller  #7  at 1-800-232-KRTH (5784) to win a pair of tickets to see The Hit Men…the original stars of Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons’ tomorrow night at the Cerritos Center for the Performing Arts.
