R&SRNR_159 – “TOP 40 LOST HITS OF 1975”
This episode celebrates the “Top 40 Lost Hits Of 1975.” It was a year for more questionable content more often on your favorite rock station. There were charted tunes about incest and gratuitous sex that left little to the imagination. Plus, a vengeful father with murder on his mind and a call to political action with a naughty word that radio stations had to bleep out. And two smokin’ hits that made fun of marijuana. The same AM and FM outlets that programmed those tunes also broadcast tender love ballads and lost love laments, as well as a lot of dance records that didn’t have a lot of lyrics. They’re all on our musical menu for this episode along with a novelty number about a notorious shark and a tribute to a beloved former U.S. President.
