I remember the Summer of 1979 very well. That time is often blasted because it was the era of Disco music. That Summer featured much more than Disco! Tunes from Bad Company, Styx, Kansas, Blondie, Cheap Trick, and Supertramp were in regular rotation on the radio. The Disco tunes weren't bad either.
It seemed like I was making hay all Summer. Once in a while it would rain and I could go for a Coney Dog at Dog N' Suds. I made 25 cents for every load of hay I helped with! I would stack up my quarters and head to the Eskin Theatre or the Starlite 14 Drive In and enjoy Summer of '79 movies such as: Alien, Breaking Away, Escape From Alcatraz, The Frisco Kid, Moonraker, Meatballs, More American Graffitti, and The Muppet Movie.
I haven't found a good enough time travel machine on the internet. The best way is to listen to the songs that bring back a million memories. You can do that with me on Saturday nights edition of Those Were The Days on WRCO FM 100.9.
