Another thread (the one about song you have forgotten about only to find on an album) made me think about radio. Now since there are a great many music lovers and even people in radio out there on SH Forums who are older than I (Im 38), I ask you to comment on what I say here, even those younger. I had always been a music lover and always had music around the house, I grew up hearing alot from parrents (Johnny Cash, Herb Alpert etc.. ) and from my much older sisters (Beatles, Stones etc...) Once my sisters were out of the house I was left to what was on radio. When I came of music buying age, lets say buying albums instead of 45s, it was around 1978 I was 13 or so. At that time radio was either top 40 or oldies which at that time ment 50s and early 60s pop, and country and disco. If you wanted to hear Cream or The Who, Pink Floyd, and even later Beatles stuff on the radio you were just out of luck, for the most part as far as I rember. I say this because as I started buying albums like "Dark Side of the Moon" and hearing "Money" (this was a song I probably hadnt heard since it was on the charts, I always really liked it but never knew who did it) hearing it on the album was a great surprise and quite a rush. "Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds" to me was an Elton John song. I can remember buying albums like Beatles Blue and Red collections and being overwealmed by all this great music that I was "winged" on but just hadn't heard in years. Then with the death of Disco came the birth of Classic Rock stations and of course all this great music that was really only a few years old was back. Does anyone else remember it this way or have a simular experience.
