1973-One Of My Favorite Music Years

There are many that listen to the same music I do that feel 1973 did not have much to offer in terms of memorable hits.  It really had a variety of soft pop hits, hard rock, country, and novelty songs.  Maybe that is why I consider it one of my favorite years for pop radio memories.  Perhaps it is because I was still a newbie at collecting music and scanning the radio dial.  It was a year that many of the top music artists appeared on television shows such as Sonny & Cher,  American Bandstand,  The Midnight Special,  Don Kirshner's In Concert, or the many talk shows.  We could not wait to see what new artists looked like.  I first saw Jim Croce perform and I remember thinking that Helen Reddy was very pretty!  In my travels to Saffell's in Richland Center, I saw brand new albums in the bins.  They included:  Goodbye Yellow Brick Road-Elton John,  Red Rose Speedway-Wings,  Dark Side Of The Moon-Pink Floyd,  Billion Dollar Babies-Alice Cooper,  Desperado-Eagles,  The Captain & Me-Doobie Brothers,  Now & Then-The Carpenters,  and Aloha From Hawaii-Elvis.  I could not afford to buy many albums on my allowance.  That meant I had to shell out 89 cents for a new 45 single.  This Saturday night I will be playing some of the best of 1973.  I have another family thing going and so I will not be able to take your requests as my services will be needed elsewhere.  I hope you will listen to Those Were The Days this Saturday night.   We will be taking your requests and playing trivia again during the month of October.
