"Gil's High School Reunion" was a repeat yesterday due to the events that unfolded in Boston. It hit home a little too near for me, so naturally some things are a bit more important. And some people wonder why I'm so obsessed with nostalgia; there once was a time when different nationalities of people could peacefully co-exist with each other, and I would hope that most of you occasionally long for those simpler days.
Anyways, the beat goes on...various genres of music once peacefully co-existed on the charts also, and today's playlist is a fine example. For 60 minutes, get ready to have your ears invaded by funk, disco, country-rock, classic rock, power pop, heavy metal, and power ballads. 1973 to 1984 artists featured today include Meat Loaf, The Moody Blues, J. Geils Band, Linda Ronstadt, Electric Light Orchestra, Cyndi Grecco, Amii Stewart, The Gap Band, Brownsville Station, Quiet Riot, Pure Prairie League, Sneaker, Climax Blues Band, John Cougar, and The Romantics. You may not remember a couple of these; Sneaker was my first dance song at my wedding, and it's been a personal favorite of mine for many years.
