It's time for some new adds to The Retro Attic's "American Bottom 45" rotation(3 U.S. minor or non-charters every hour):
1. The Robbs - Last Of The Wine - '70 - very similar to The Grass Roots - why these guys didn't have at least 1 Hot 100 entry is very mind-boggling.
2. Debbie Harry - French Kissin - '86
3. Bros - When Will I Be Famous? - '88
4. Tyrannosaurus Rex - Ride A White Swan - '71
5. Sylvia(Kirby) - Snapshot - '83
6. Christie - San Bernadino - '71
7. Donald Fagen - New Frontier - '83
8. Nik Kershaw - Wouldn't It Be Good - '84
9. Lil Louis - French Kiss - '89 - the vocal version with Shawn Christopher
10. Conductor - Voice On The Radio - '82 - forgotten AOR
11. Evelyn Thomas - High Energy - '84 - the original UK version
If you've missed the good old days of adult contemporary(or MOR, easy listening, soft rock, westcoast, yacht rock...you get the idea), then this Saturday night's AB45 show will be for you! It will be a 3 hour mix of 60's-80's AC #1's that either didn't cross over to the pop top 40 or had no problem getting in whatsoever. Anne Murray, Orsa Lia, Helen Reddy, Edward Bear, J.D. Souther...they and many others will make the cut!
