One Hit Wonders & 1973 Hot Hits

Saturday night on WRCO FM 100.9, we will be flying back to 1973.  I have argued with other music nerds about that year.  It seems to me that it was one of the best years of the seventies for rock and roll music.  Others seem to feel that there were way to many  non-rock hits and cheese story songs.  They are not wrong, however, that is what makes the year good.  There was music for everyone. I had a great year buying records.  There were songs from Elton John, Deep Purple,  Paul McCartney, Led Zepplin, Carly Simon, Loggins & Messina, Spinners, and Joe Walsh released during the first six months of the year.  We will spend some time hanging out in 1973 during the second half of Those Were The Days.   In the first half of our Saturday night radio show,  I will bring back stacks of one hit wonders from the seventies.  I have dedicated two six hour shows to one hit artists in the past.  It seems the seventies featured more memorable one shots than any other decade.  Some of my faves include:  Reflections Of My Life-Marmalade,  Dancing In the Moonlight-King Harvest,  Beach Baby-First Class,  Magic-Pilot,  Hot Child In The City-Nick Gilder,  Drivers Seat-Sniff n' The Tears,  Do You Know What I Mean-Lee Michaels,  Smoke From  A Distant Fire-Sanford Townsend Band,  Get It On-Chase,  Tighter & Tighter-Alive n' Kickin',  White Lies-Blue Eyes-Bullet,  and Ma Belle Amie-The Tea Set.   It will be a pleasure to spin a few of these on my Close and Play record player this weekend.  I will not be in the studio to take your requests and give away trivia prizes  this weekend. Those features will return next Saturday night.  I hope you tune in to Those Were The Days on FM 100.9 on Saturday night.
