"Treat Her Like A Lady" 10 over signal in Westminster, MD. Robert Palmer w/ "Some Like it Hot", he dressed like a gentleman, no wonder those models were all over him? He was pretty fly for a White guy. "You Make me Feel Like Dancin'" can't remember who did that one. Steve Miller Band "Fly Like an Eagle" or was it "Time Keeps on Slipping"? It's kind of hazy, that was the year Red Bud hit town.

Yeeck! KC and The Sunshine Band with "That's The Way I Like It". The only good thing about this band is they came from the town where all the Red Bud and Colombian Gold hitting the Eastern half of the US was coming from. Things just got worse, Elton John and his caterwauling.   "Ain't no Woman Like The One I Got." 70's belly rubbin' music. At last, The Kings of New Jersey Power pop, The Smithereens, with "A Girl Like You." Used to play the Hell out of this one for Al Fansome and his beloved Belinda.

"Like a Sturgeon"? It sounds like one. Bobby Zimmerman, "Like A Rolling Stone". Hendrix did it better, but my adenoids allow me to sing it just like Bobby. No Siamese cat on my shoulder, those things are mean. It's from his, "You really hurt me, Joan. I need to whine." phase. "Ain't Nothin' Like The Real Thing" into "I Wouldn't Want to be Like You" don't remember who did those. "Tell it Like It Is" used to play the Aaron Neville original on Mr. Romance Radio. If you want to get lucky fella's, put that one on your seduction mix, it never fails. "Rock You Like a Hurricane" Scorpions, love the bad German English. Paul Simon, short, bald, angry man hoping his Mama still loves him. After what you and Julio were doing down by the schoolyard, I doubt it Pauly. Got to go take a Trump, I'll be back.

Still have a great signal. "Love Is Like Oxygen" is that 10cc? Yoko Ono's husband with "Starting Over". I remember "Monday Night Football" being interrupted over his assassination. Howard and Frank weren't happy, you don't interrupt football over a Commie Hippy getting killed, and off.
