From the December 6, 1014, WXRT Saturday Morning Flashback with Wendy Rice. Always enjoy this show from 8 to noon on 93.1 FM which streams on the internet. besides the music, there are plenty of events from that year that really take you back in my last full year as a teen.
And, this was a college year at good old NIU.
By the way, Professor John Hook is playing the top 40 Beach Music songs from 1955 on his show at www.beachshag.com site this week. This was before my time of listening to music, but I have come to know a lot of these songs as I delve deeper into the roots of Rock and Roll.
These are the songs she played:
HAVE YOU EVER SEEN THE RAIN-- CCR
MIDNIGHT RIDER-- Allman Brothers
TAKE ME TO THE PILOT-- Elton John
WORKING CLASS HERO-- John Lennon
ARE YOU READY-- Pacific Gas & Electric
I HEAR YOU KNOCKING-- Dave Edmunds
SWEET BABY JAMES-- James Taylor
NATURE'S WAY-- Spirit
"I Want to Know." --RoadDog
