Good one...had that song show up on the radio just as I started the car leaving a woman for the last time in '82. Truly spooky. Naturally, I think of that every time I hear it.

Another: Lobo: Don't Expect Me to be Your Friend
The box that many broadcasters won’t look outside of was made in 1969 and hasn’t changed significantly since.
