Song of the Day: Freddy Fender, “Wasted Days And Wasted Nights”

Country, Tejano and rock & roll star Freddy Fender was born on this day in 1937. He wrote and first recorded "Wasted Days and Wasted Nights" in 1960, but legal troubles prevented the record from getting much attention. He re-recorded it in 1975 after reaching #1 with "Before the Next Teardrop Falls," and it also reached #1 on the Country chart and #8 on the Hot 100.

  1. I remember this one. I even think I have the album somewhere. When I was a teen I belonged to a record club. Remember those?
