1973 From the Nee

The new year has arrived.  Now that it is 2023, my favorite 1973 songs are fifty years old!  That year was prime time radio listening and record buying time for me.  Music motivated me to do extra chores so that when I was able to scrape together 80 cents, I could go to Saffels' and purchase a new 45 rpm record.  My friend Kent Kotal from the website is not a big fan of that year in music.  He and I will have to agree to disagree because I think 1973 music is pretty cool.  There were some stinkers that have not stood the test of time, but for the most part the music was awesome.  Top albums included:  Dark Side of the Moon-Pink Floyd,  Houses of the Holy-Led Zepplin,  Goodbye Yellow Brick Road-Elton John,  Band on the Run-Wings,  and Innervisions-Stevie Wonder.  Saturday night during Those Were the Days, we will stop and park for a while in January of 1973.  We wont have to run the heater because the music will keep us warm.  Some of my faves from that chart include:  You're So Vain-Carly Simon,  Your Mama Don't Dance-Loggins and Messina,  Crocodile Rock-Elton John,  Sweet Surrender-Bread,  I Wanna Be With You-Raspberries,  Do It Again-Steely Dan,  Dancing In the Moonlight-King Harvest, Peaceful Easy Feeling-Eagles,  Big City Miss Ruth Ann-Gallery,  and Superstition-Stevie Wonder.  These were songs that I listened to while I was riding the bus, helping in the barn, pretending to do homework, and what was playing on my AM Panasonic radio under my covers in January of 1973.

Saturday night will be the first show in 2023 and the request/contest line will be open for you to put in a dedication for a favorite from the fifties through the eighties.  This past Saturday night we had a blast with Triviathon revisited.  Nearly 40 teams played along with us.  Thanks to everyone involved.  We are already thinking about doing another one at the end of 2023!  Give me a call and we will talk this Saturday night during Those Were the Days on WRCO Fm 100.9 and
