Going to high school in the 70's and early 80's meant dealing with a melting pot of classmates: you had the rebel who wrapped fake soda labels around beer cans and brought them into school, you had the girl who was mellow and as nice as could be, and you had the bespectacled genius who was a closet metalhead. Today's edition of "Gil's High School Reunion" could also be called an extremely eclectic melting pot; where else in the course of 10 minutes can you jump up and down like a pogo stick, quickly change into denim and leather and give yourself instant whiplash, and come back down to earth by grabbing your office co-worker and doing a slow dance?
Today's musical alumni includes the following: The 4 Seasons, Wall Of Voodoo, Daryl Hall & John Oates, John Sebastian, Hamilton, Joe Frank & Reynolds, The James Gang, AWB, Uriah Heep, Motorhead, Rhythm Heritage, Alabama, Raydio, The Motels, Nicolette Larson, Ali Thomson, Duke Jupiter, and Peter Brown. 60 minutes of musical bliss...or laughs...or the reasons you bought 5 dollar concert tickets...whatever the case, there is no denying that we grew up in a fun musical era!
The fun begins today at 2 PM eastern. Tune in at http://retroatticrareoldiesradio.blogspot.com and make sure to follow us on Twitter at http://www.twitter.com/melrocker65.
