Re: lesser known pop hits

Hi Everyone,

I used to make it a point to play songs that charted in the top 40 back in
the 70s but never seemed to make anyone's playlists nowadays when I was a
host on WYHI 1570 near Jacksonville, FL. When was the last time you heard
Sister Janet Mead on the radio?? I used to dedicate that one to our
third-adjacent neighbors Catholic Radio WQOP 1600 in Atlantic Beach, FL
Queen of Peace Radio...

BTW, I have a snippet of tape of KIKI Stereo 83 in Honolulu doing thier
weekly countdown, mentioning that song as an add to the survey back in the
mid 80s.
