Session #10 – 26 May 2017 – Theme: 1977

POPROCK - 1957-2017
60 Years of Pop Rock 1957-2017

As I said TWO weeks ago, today is all songs from 1977.

What a decade the 70’s were?! Remember… oh yeah, I was only 8 years old in ’77… I don’t remember any music. In fact, most of the music I am playing today I heard on the radio many many years later. Thanks Dad!

Let’s jump straight into it…


A few weeks ago, just before I was going to air, I heard that Chris Cornell of Sound Garden had unfortunately committed suicide. So I have had these two songs ready to play for him since then:

  • Black Hole Sun – Sound Garden
  • Only the Good Die Young – Billy Joel

Station Intro / Reminder that nearly all the songs today were first released in 1977.

  • Walk this Way – Aerosmith
  • Sheena is a Punk Rocker – The Ramones
  • Just Like Fire Wood – The Saints
    • I told you this was 1977 to see who was listening. After it played, I told my listeners it was actually released in 1986.
