How did my mind wander here and back to my early years in New York City? The guilty party is Lisa Jenness. Her husband Mike does the work on my two E Bikes. The other day Lisa decides she would like to get an insight into the history of my musical tastes with one of those “I nominate you to…..” threads on Facebook. It did start me to thinking about my early years and music.
This may have been the first record I ever owned. I remember playing this over and over on my 45 record player.
Thinking of this reminded me of always listening to Musicradio 77 WABC. It was the top 40 station in New York City. Mom and Dad did not listen to this station.
So I will give you a few links if you would like to reminisce about those not so peaceful times. The links below after The NY Times article are lists for the top hits of 1967 to 1972. The songs, the artists. Memories! Who can forget Gary Lewis and the Playboys singing “Sealed With a Kiss?” – So we gotta say goodbye for the summer…..
Enjoy! And thank you Lisa!
