More Favorite Summers-1975

This Saturday night I will play more little 45 records from the fifites through the eighties.  We will stop and park for a time in the Summer of 1975.  There were so many memorable records that year.  When I hear Grand Funk singing Bad Time I am right back there eating a Coney Dog at Dog N' Suds.  When I hear Rock The Boat by Hues Corporation, I am sitting on the porch at the old farm house shucking sweet corn and snapping green beans.  Wednesday night was the weekly slow pitch softball night in Ithaca.  That was the only night out for many of us farm kids.  The cool kids would pull into the parking lot and set their speakers on the roof of the car.  When I hear Sweet Emotion by Aerosmith, I am transported to the Summer of 1975. Saturday night on Those Were The Days, we will travel through time to another wonderful Summer.  I hope you will enjoy our special features on FM 100.9.  It seems like this is going to be a great show and hopefully you will agree. The request line will be open again next Saturday night.  I will report to you soon with an essay about how I spent my Summer vacation on a future show.
