3 Chords & the Truth: 1976 comes alive!
It was 1976, and it was a year of possibility.
I was a sophomore in high school in 1976. The Viking spacecraft first landed on Mars in 1976. The United States was 200 years old in 1976.
And I was really into Loose Radio in 1976 -- the waning days of the age of FM "progressive rock" stations and the magical world they opened up to the kids who listened. A world of possibility.
This week on 3 Chords & the Truth, we'll devote an entire set to the magic, to the possibilities, to the album rock of 1976. Really, it's an "everybody wins" deal on the Big Show -- you get some really cool music, and I get to be 15 again. A much smarter 15.
OF COURSE, "All Things 1976" isn't all there is to the program this go around. It's not like we're going to be slighting all the other decades of the music of our lives . . . and our parents' (and maybe grandparents') lives.
It's all good, and it's all here on the Big Show.
What's that again?
It's 3 Chords & the Truth, y'all. Be there. Aloha.
