Air Supply-the duo of English singer-songwriter, guitarist Graham Russell and Aussie Russell Hitchcock were leaders in the early 80’s wimp rock craze that struck America. Music to cure insomnia. Air Supply had 8 Top 10 hits in America in the early 80’s with “The One That You Love’- being their only #1. Although I know they have defenders- to me all their hit singles sounded the same/ out of the same formula. I can’t say I hated them-because other than hearing their music once a week on American Top 40- I never payed any attention to them.

  1. I call that genre “EBS Specials.” That’s where you have two stations, and one’s running its weekly EBS test, so you swich to the other, hear a song like this, and switch back to the test.
