Blast(S) From The Past!

It’s Friday and that means it’s time to deliver another reminder of how good the music was in the “good old days” of rock ‘n’ roll! Today you’re getting a look back at three very special years in three very special decades.
At the bottom, there’s the #1 song in America on this date in 1976. I’m sure Wendy Plante will appreciate it. 🙂

    Happy to see you post occasional medleys again. Doing morning chores & drinking coffee to great music makes me happy. My favorite was of course ’62, when I was 16 with hardly a care in the world.

    Pat, I went way back today and one of the reasons was YOU because I know how much you enjoy those years. 🙂

      Thank you, Penny. I had to include Disco Duck for my daughter. She was 5 when the song came out and she loved it!
