Ready, Set, 1980..Hut..Hut..Hut!

In the fall of 1980, I played center for the Ithaca Bulldogs.  It was a public service move on my part.  Our opponents had a good place to clean their cleats as they ran over me and got some tillage done using my face mask as a double bottom moldboard plow share.  As I was getting humbled, I had many popular songs of the day running through my helmeted head.  Some of my faves from this weekend in 1980 include:  Let My Love Open the Door-Pete Townsend,  Boulevard-Jackson Browne,  All Over the World-ELO,  It's Still Rock and Roll To Me-Billy Joel,  I'm Alright-Kenny Loggins (from Caddyshack!!!),  You Better Run-Pat Benatar,  and Xanadu-Olivia Newton-John and ELO.  We will park for a time in 1980 with the radio on during our time together.

I hope you will join the radio party this Saturday night between six and midnight for Those Were the Days.  Your favorites from the fifties through the early nineties will again hit the airwaves.  Last week we heard from new friends from around the state and country.  My favorite call was from a group of campers listening via their phones on a sandbar in the middle of the river!  It is still campfire and front porch sitting season and I hope you get a chance to enjoy the awesome weather.  Make sure that you remember to listen for Those Were the Days on WRCO FM 100.9 and
