Spring Of 1976 On Those Were The Days

I remember Spring of 1976 very well.  New life was coming to the farm in the Willow Valley.   Favorite hobbies included: riding my three speed down the bumpy gravel road,  listening to my scratchy AM radio late at night under the blankets,  and practicing my favorite sport, ping pong.   Spring hits were blooming on the radio including:  Let Your Love Flow-Bellamy Brothers,  Show Me The Way-Peter Frampton,  Action-The Sweet,  Slow Ride-Foghat,  Right Back Where We Started From-Maxine Nightingale,  and December 1963 (Oh What A Night)-Four Seasons.  When I hear some of these hit songs now,  I am right back there listening for dad to start the tractors in preperation for field work.  Music provided a great escape and during these current times,  I am listening to more that ever.   We had amazing response last Saturday night to our show.  That was the largest amount of requests in a long time.   The good side of this pandemic is the fact that more people are playing cards,  putting together puzzles, reading books, and doing things with family.  I hope everyone stays well and it would be wonderful to talk with you Saturday night during Those Were the Days between six and midnight on WRCO FM 100.9.
