  1. This was a mixture. You gave Meri Wilson a higher grade than I thought you would! Whew, that one is just bad…beyond bad.

    I was 10 when this happened. 1977 was the first year I really paid attention to what was going on around me in new music, news, and especially baseball.

    • It was that month- a few weeks earlier that I began listening to American Top 40… somewhere tonight Meri Wilson will probably be singing Telephone Man at a Holiday Inn.

    • I like those mixtures- a little something for everyone- even some country music. Would love to hear a Top 40 today with a mix.
