Image result for JOHN TRAVOLTA AND OLIVIA NEWTON JOHN IMAGES

 

The American Top 40 replay this weekend on the 70’s on 7 is from the week of October 7, 1978. This was the week where AT40 expanded from 3 hours to 4 hours. Any week with The Who and The Rolling Stones in it- has to be pretty decent. Some good- some not so good like any other week. I will try to be nice on the grades.
