Fall Of 1973 Celebrated On Saturday Night

The year of nineteen hundred and seventy-three was a very fine year for popular music.  I argued a bit recently with another music nerd who downplayed the years popular tunes.  While it is no 1967, it still had lots of music that I still enjoy hearing today.  Some of the Phil Nee faves that I spent my farm chore allowance on included:  We're An American Band-Grand Funk,  My Maria-B.W.Stevenson,  Ramblin Man-Allman Brothers,  Brother Louie-Stories,  Saturday Night's Alright For Fighting-Elton John,  Midnight Train To Georgia-Gladys Knight & the Pips,  China Grove-Doobie Brothers,  Free Ride-Edgar Winter Group,  Live And Let Die-Paul McCartney & Wings,  and Jimmy Loves Mary Anne-Looking Glass.  It took a lot of egg gathering, hay stacking, calf feeding, barn cleaning, and milker washing to have enough money to afford that many forty-five records!   Join me Saturday night as I once again prove my mom wrong.  She used to ask "why do you waste your money on those records....when you are just going to throw them away in a year?"  Mom,  I still don't throw anything away.  Just ask my wife, June.  On the airwaves of WRCO FM 100.9 we will set sail for 1973 and other locations including the fifties through the eighties this Saturday night.  I would like to thank all of our past and current listeners for making Those Were The Days an event.  I will be in the studio between six and midnight for our final show in the month of September this Saturday night.  Please give me a call.
