    • Same here- every morning I’d get up for school and as I got ready and waited to go would have the radio on- and these songs would be playing. Some – especially the ones I really didn’t like seem to be played every morning…

  1. This list could be a classic rock radio playlist today minus a few like Mr. Sayer and a couple of Osmonds.
    There was a small window where Leo Sayer was everywhere…I always got him and Richard Simmons mixed up.
