The Spring Of 1976 Revisited On Saturday Night

The Spring of 1976 was a wonderful time in my life.  I was twelve and would be thirteen later that year.   The radio was on every where I went.  My Panasonic portable went everywhere with me.  The radio was on while I was riding the bus, at school in the Art room.  The farm truck and the barn radio kept me going while I was doing the chores.   When I look at the chart today, I realize that I could have named the top fifty songs on the pop charts at my tender age back in '76.  Some Spring favorites included:  Let Your Love Flow-Bellamy Brothers,  Right Back Where We Started From-Maxine Nightingale,  Dream Weaver-Gary Wright,  Show Me The Way-Peter Frampton,  Bohemian Rhapsody-Queen,  December 1963 (Oh What A Night)-Four Seasons,   Dream On-Aerosmith,  Take It To The Limit-Eagles,  Lorelei-Styx,  Rhiannon (Will You Ever Win)-Fleetwood Mac,  and Shout It Out Loud-Kiss.  It is still fun to jam to these songs today!  We will spin a few 1976 gems and we will play your requests this Saturday night.  Get ready for trivia because six times (one per hour) we will quiz you on pop culture from the fifties through the eighties.  I may also play a few Record Store Day gems.  Saturday April 21st is Record Store Day across the World.  A journey to Madison with one of my fellow record nerds should produce some vinyl gems.  I have been saving my pop and peanuts allowance (don't tell June).  Hopefully I will find a few rare gems in Madison Saturday.   Thank you for reading.

Phil
