Farm Truck Jams In 1980

The old farm truck was not my ride of choice, however, it was better than walking or riding my bike.   It would often have a half load of something in its bed that I would have to unload before I left the farm lane.  It did have a good radio.  I remember hearing many songs during the Spring and Summer of 1980 while I was hauling seed corn to the fields or pulling loads of hay.  At night that truck was my link to the night life of rural Richland Center.  My girl friend would have to move a log chain, clevis, a small paper sack full of washers, and a gear off the corn planter, if she wanted to slide close to me on the bench seat. There was a romantic glow coming from the fly specked dash board as the hot tunes of 1980 provided the soundtrack for a hot date!         This week on Those Were The Days we will travel down the gravel road with hits including:  Call Me-Blondie,  Funkytown-Lipps Inc., Cars-Gary Numan,  Brass In Pocket-Pretenders,  We Live For Love-Pat Benatar,  You May Be Right-Billy Joel,  and Lost In Love-Air Supply.  Listen to Those Were The Days on WRCO FM 100.9 and you could be the lucky winner of a great prize when we play trivia.  Request a song from the fifties through the eighties between 6 and midnight Saturday night.
