Summer Of 1976 Radio Faves

Our Country celebrated a birthday in the Summer of 1976.  There were red, white, and blue fire hydrants, mailboxes, and patriotic tributes every where you went.  After a day of haymaking and a quick dip in the Willow creek,  it was time to help with chores in the barn.  The old Westinghouse radio in the rafters of our 1907 built barn kept us in touch.  Some of my favorite songs that made chores go faster included:  Love Is Alive-Gary Wright,  Rock And Roll Music-Beach Boys,  You're My Best Friend-Queen,  Say You Love Me-Fleetwood Mac,  Moonlight Feels Right-Starbuck,  Last Child-Aerosmith,  and Turn The Beat Around-Vicki Sue Robinson.  As August rolled around, it was time to start winding the Summer down.  My mom was making plans to take me to Krouskops'  for my new school pants.  This was a day I dreaded.  Usually I could negotiate a new 45 record in exchange for not complaining about the school pants day.  It seems like only yesterday when I strolled to Shultz Brothers (The Dime Store) and bought a new K-tel record that had a bunch of hits. This would help me have songs to make some mean mix tapes on my Panasonic tape recorder.  This Saturday night I will be making a radio mix tape.  You can help program our Those Were The Days radio show on WRCO FM 100.9 with your requests between six and Midnight.  When I hear those great hits from the Summer of '76, I will be right back there trying on husky size stiff legged school pants with flair legs.  I will be in the studio to have some fun on Saturday night.  I hope to talk with you at that time.
