I Was Fine Back In '79

It was early February of 1979 and I was just finishing my Freshman year on the mighty  Bulldog J.V.basketball team.  My goal was to get one point in every game.  As it turned out, many people were pointing at me each game!  For every road game I would bring my Panasonic tape recorder and play back some of my mix tapes.  Some of the teams favorites included:  Every 1's A Winner-Hot Chocolate (our team certainly did not win many),  What A Fool Believes-The Doobie Brothers,  My Life-Billy Joel, Soul Man-Blues Brothers,  Blue Morning, Blue Day-Foreigner, Hold The Line-Toto,  and  New York Groove-Ace Frehley.   I will be spinning a few of these songs and more this Saturday night during Those Were The Days on WRCO FM 100.9.  When songs from that time play I can remember the frosty bus windows,  icey cold times around the farm,  and the high school record hops.  Those first nights when I got the nerve to ask a young lady for a dance on the old gym floor.  Through the power of music, WRCO will transfer you to the fifties through the eighties again this Saturday night.  You can contribute a request to the show.  I will be in the studio taking calls and playing trivia during our six hour Those Were The Days radio show on WRCO FM 100.9.
