How About Some Road Songs for the New Year-- Part 1: 1974 "Tell Me Something Good"


And, we'll be going back to 1974, my first year out of college and first year teaching.

These were some of the songs played on WXRT's, 93.1 FM Chicago Saturday Morning Flashback on December 1, 2018.  Every Saturday, they spotlight a year from 9 to noon, Central Time.

Good music and good comments and observations.

RIDE MY TIGER--  Jefferson Starship
SPANISH MOON--  Little Feat
BRIDGE OF SIGHS--  Robin Trower

I SHOT THE SHERIFF--  Eric Clapton
ANGEL FROM MONTGOMERY--  Bonnie Raitt
LONG LIVE ROCK--  Who

TELL ME SOMETHING GOOD--  Chaka Khan & Rufus
MIRAGE--  Santana
TIME WAITS FOR NO ONE.--  Rolling Stones

I'm not sure how much longer it will go, but Chicago's WDRV 97.1 FM, the Drive" is playing some 2000+ songs from A to Z and have been since Christmas Day.  They don't know when they will reach Z, but it could be tonight or tomorrow.  Give it a listen and it streams at www,wdrv.com.

Name That Tune (from the above songs):  "But I Did Not Shoot The Deputy."  Answer below.  --RoadDog



"I Shot the Sheriff"
