Wrestling With 1977 On TWTD

This Saturday night Those Were The Days will slip on a few 45's from 1977 in between high school sports coverage of wrestling and basketball.  Join us for musical interludes from 1977 and your rock and roll requests.   This weekend back in '77 Manfred Mann's Earth Band was 'Blinded By The Light', The Jackson's were encouraging you to 'Enjoy Yourself', Rose Royce was taking everyone to the 'Car Wash'.  One of my favorite Kiss songs was 'Hard Luck Woman' was on the airwaves.  It was written with Rod Stewart in mind.  Peter Criss had sung the groups biggest hit 'Beth' the year before and he sang 'Hard Luck Woman' a year later with his signiture raspy voice.   Kansas had one of the hottest songs on the radio with 'Carry On Wayward Son'.  It was a good time for music.  The old barn radio had finally faded to silence and a new one included the FM band.  That allowed me to fine tune stations like D-93 out of Dubuque (now Kat-FM). They played many of the previously mentioned hits and they programmed a few lesser known songs and album tracks. It helped me get the chores finished faster.  I hope you will go back to 1977 with me on Saturday night.  Join me in between sports coverage for another edition of Those Were The Days.
