A Forty Year Flashback To 1977

On this Saturday nights Those Were The Days, I will dig up some old records from January of 1977.  My dad surpised me on Christmas day 1976 with the gift of a new stereo record changer. He told me to pick one out and he would buy it. I had a difficult time finding a stereo with a cassette player/recorder.  All of the consoles still featured an 8 track player.  I had already collected many cassette tapes and wanted to drop the 8 tracks in the waste basket.  The only stereo in Richland Center that had the cassette technology was at a store in the Richland Square called 'Capps'.  It was a console model made by Panasonic.  By January of 1977 I was the mix tape making king!  There were so many good songs on the radio from such groups as; Aerosmith,  Fleetwood Mac, Steve Miller Band, Bob Seger, Boston, and many others.   My new speakers rattled the windows in the old farm house.   I will be playing some of the best 1977 January tunes this Saturday night on WRCO FM 100.9.   Your requests will be welcomed and perhaps you can win a trivia prize.  We will feature one question per hour during the six hour show.  Perhaps you can stump the dj!  I will look foward to talking with you between 6 PM and Midnight Saturday night.
