I once had (maybe I still do in a box somewhere) four
or five AT40 programs from various years on vinyl,
complete with cue sheets ('77 the earliest, the '84
8-disc year end countdown the most recent).  The theme
from the '77 program was refered to as the "Shuckatoom
Theme" on the included cue sheet.  Some of those old
national spots from the early '80s bring back
memories...L.A. Beer anyone?
