Make A Date With 1978!

  Our all time favorite music Summers have been much fun.  Thanks for your good response to our Summer salutes over the last few weeks.  This weeks Those Were The Days radio show will reflect a bit on the Summer of 1978.  I was getting ready to join the mighty Ithaca Bulldog football team in that part of August.  I was not much help to the team, however, I was comic relief.  They were laughing with me, and most of the time at me!  My Panasonic tape recorder was blasting all of the hits during the bus trips to Seneca,  North Crawford,  LaFarge, Kickapoo, Weston, DeSoto, and Wauzeka.  During this year I also realized that there were cute neighbor girls in both directions of county highway B.  I was able to get the same number of dates as my football team got wins in 1978 (zero).  At least we were consistant.  The Friday night record hops were my chance to show the girls the moves I learned while watching American Bandstand.  Some of the songs that made me get up and boogie included:  Miss You-Rolling Stones,  Life's Been Good-Joe Walsh,  King Tut-Steve Martin,  Hot Child In The City-Nick Gilder,  Two Tickets To Paradise-Eddie Money,  Just What I Needed-The Cars,  and Grease-Frankie Valli.  This Saturday night I will be going back to those days on FM 100.9.   I hope you will join the fun and give us a call to suggest a tune for the playlist.  We had some wild 'meteor watching parties'  join us last week.  Perhaps you can plan a get together and than dedicate a song to your guests during Those Were The Days and the best of the fifties through the eighties.
