Show from 10/01/09: That Horrid 70s Show

The Seventies were weird.
I don’t mean The Stooges, Residents and Prog-Rock weird.
I mean there was some incredibly strange mainstream music on commercial radio throughout a big chunk of the 70’s and much of it was very bad. Bad then and really bad now.
Tonight, it’s Horrid 70’s music. Everything played was on the air a lot and much of it was on the Billboard top 100.

That’s how badly Viet Nam, Nixon and the economy affected us.
