February 1982 Top 40 Goodies

This week on Those Were The Days, I will be digging out the old 45's from February 1982.   I was wrapping up my Senior year of high school, and playing my last high school basketball game. The radio was always on and my old buddy Marty and me were playing all of the hot hits at local dances.  It was a great time for music.  Some of the goodies from the Billboard chart in '82 include:  Centerfold-J.Geils Band,  Shake It Up-The Cars,  Let's Groove-Earth, Wind, and Fire,  Love Is Alright Tonight-Rick Springfield, Abacab-Genesis,  Working For The Weekend-Loverboy,  I Love Rock n' Roll-Joan Jett,  and Don't Stop Believin-Journey.  I really feel that 1982 was the best year of the 80's for music. 

I will be in the studio to take your requests during the Saturday night radio show between six and midnight.  We will have a full day of local wrestling to cover so I may be a little tired.  I will have to have a couple of Ski soda pops to help keep my eyes open.  We will play trivia and have another great time remembering the greatest songs ever put on vinyl.
