This episode spotlights 40 lost hits from 1976. These include top 40 tunes radio stations no longer play – by major artists such as Stevie Wonder, the Electric Light Orchestra, Elton John, and the Beach Boys, among others. 

We’ll salute a legendary disco star who was also an acclaimed painter. And we’ll reveal another disco diva, who left nothing to the imagination in her other profession as a pornographic pictures star. Plus, we’ll showcase three super-hit television themes, including one that was named after a famed Olympics gold medal winner. 

A musician, singer, record producer, and composer who was Buddy Holly’s best friend, penned a #1 rhythm & blues hit. That story and that song are part of this episode, too, along with the only Top 10 tune ever about a dog during the rock and roll era. 

So, get your ears in gear for forty forgotten top 40 hits from a fabulous rock and roll year – 1976.
