Doing The Chores In '74 With The Radio

Saturday night during Those Were The Days, we will continue our favorite Summers' series.  When I was growing up the farm chores always went quicker when the radio was playing in the back ground.  In 1974 I felt my first feelings of interest in a young lady.  Her dad and my aunt were dating at the time and she came with them to the farm for a visit.  She was a couple of years older than me but we shared a passion for music.  She could play guitar and sing!   I was quickly smitten by her.  She couldn't wait to get back to her big city.  After her visit I couldn't hear enough of the Hollies singing...'All I need is the air that I breathe and to love you'.....!   Poor Philip was broken hearted for a few days.  Another sad thing happened that Summer.  ABC announced that the Partridge Family show was cancelled.  I would not see Susan Dey again until the eighties in the show L.A. Law.   Songs that got me through my Summer chores in 1974 included:  Taking Care Of Business-B.T.O., Rikki, Don't Lose That Number-Steely Dan,  Band On The Run-Wings,  Rock The Boat-Hues Corporation,  Sundown-Gordon Lightfoot,  and Radar Love-Golden Earring.  It was a great time to listen to Top Forty radio.  I would take my Panasonic radio with me on our rainy day (no hay baling) fishing outings.  No fish would come near the line that came out of my Zebco 202 fishing pole because the radio was so loud.  I was rocking Lee Lake in Cazenovia with my portable radio.  When I hear some of the songs from 1974 I remember those first feelings of love,  farming chores, fishing, and riding my Huffy bike....Those Were The Days.  I will be in the studio to take your requests of great hits from the fifties through the eighties Saturday night between six and Midnight.
