August 1974 Saturday Night

Hey rock and rollers!  I hope to hear from you Saturday night when I again host Those Were The Days on WRCO FM 100.9.  This weekend we will go on a road trip to August of 1974.  We were watching history as one President stepped down and another stepped up.  The Summer was wrapping up quickly.  I had met a guitar playing pretty young lady that Summer that provided me with my first crush. I was crushed when she left with her family after a Summer vacation and went back to the east coast.  The Top 40 chart provided me with a diversion although I could not sing along with All I Need Is The Air That I Breathe by the Hollies without getting a bit misty!  Other radio jams during the first weekend of August 1974 included:  Rikki, Don't Lose That Number-Steely Dan,  The Night Chicago Died-Paper Lace,  Waterloo-Abba,  Rock Your Baby-George McCrae,  Taking Care Of Business-B.T.O.,  and Sure As I'm Sittin Here-Three Dog Night.  I will play a few of these and your rock and roll requests during our six hour radio party this Saturday night during Those Were The Days.
