Best Fall Of 1976 Albums

It was the second half of 1976.  A young record album buyer was having a tough time buying all of the albums he wanted on a $2.00 a week allowance.  It would take me a month to save up to buy one and if I wanted a Mallow Cup at Gus's Service Station I couldn't afford the album.  Between August and December of 1976, there were many record albums released that still are highly regarded today.  This Saturday night on WRCO FM 100.9, we will play a few of those vinyl memories during Those Were The Days. Here is a list of some of my favorite second half of 1976 record albums.

Boston- Boston, Songs In The Key Of Life-Stevie Wonder,  Crystal Ball-Styx, Night Moves-Bob Seger, Leftoverture-Kansas, Tom Petty's debut, Rock And Roll Over-Kiss, 33 1/3-George Harrison,  The Pretender-Jackson Browne, Hotel California-Eagles, A Day At The Races-Queen, and Wings Over America-Wings.    Hear some tracks from these albums during this weekends rock and roll revival.  You can ask that a pop radio hit from the fifties through the eighties be played between six and Midnight Saturday night.  I will be in the studio to take your requests.  We will play trivia and you can impress your friends.  I hope to hear from you Saturday night.
