Once upon a time, there was a band called Clicker.
It was a show band, doing pop/rock/glam covers and terrific original songs. Clicker played throughout Wisconsin and the Midwest during the early to mid-1970s.
People who saw and heard Clicker — they also got some regional airplay — have fond memories of the band. Every time we write about Clicker, more people share their stories.
Read our posts about Clicker. Then read the comments. Then add your memories, your stories. That’s how we preserve Wisconsin’s rock ‘n’ roll heritage.
