Did You Know: “Turn! Turn! Turn!” By The Byrds

Today on ‘Tickets @ 2’ listen for “Turn! Turn! Turn!” by The Byrds. Written by Pete Seger in the late 1050s, the lyrics were adapted. almost entirely from verses in the Book of Ecclesiastes, set to music and recorded by Seger in 1962.

The song became an international hit in late 1965 when it was covered by The Byrds, reaching #1 on the Billboard Hot 100.

When we play it between two and three we’ll take caller # 7 at 1-800-232-KRTH.(5784) to win a 4-Pack of tickets to see Dream Works animated “Turbo” courtesy of the Automobile Club.
