Simply '70s: Stick it and win
If you grew up in Baton Rouge, La., in the 1970s, you just got goose bumps.
And, irrationally, you're hoping the guy from the radio station will see the bumper stickers on your computer screen, stop you and give you a prize.
WIBR (Radio 13), WFMF (Why, oh, why didn't they stick with progressive rock?) and WLCS (the Big Win 910) . . . we got 'em all covered. For we of a certain age, these stations -- with able assists from WAIL and WBRH (starting in '77) -- provided the soundtrack of our youth.
It was a time when school shootings were unheard of and teenagers did not live by the calendar on their smart phones, which blessedly did not yet exist. I miss those days, and I miss these radio stations.
Even the post-Loose Radio incarnation of 'FMF. But don't tell my friends; that would be so not cool.
