Show 56, My Mom, etc.

Last week was very difficult. My mom died of cancer at age 73, and was buried. This week production resumed on the show. Show number 56 is nearly done. It should be completed on Friday June 26. Show 55 will air in a few weeks on most stations.

I was saddened to learn today of the passing of pop icon Michael Jackson, AND pop-culture icon Farrah Fawcett. Having suffered a recent loss, I understand fully what both families are experiencing. The work of both has been featured on "Saving the 70s", and will of course continue to be featured in the future.

Show 54

Sorry I've been neglecting the blogging a big. Illness in the family has kept me away from my keyboard. As a buffer a "classic" episode was moved into the schedule (see if you can tell which one!). Production of the show never stopped, but the "classic" was moved into the schedule in case I need to be away for a there's a longer "buffer" between when shows are produced, and when they air.

At any rate, most affiliates will air Show 54 in three weeks, and it's a good one, loaded with songs that have never been on Saving the 70s before, and haven't been on your radio in a LONG TIME! Plus there's ACTUAL audio of the Apollo 13 mission...including those famous words spoken by Tom Hanks in the movie!

What would you like to hear on the show that you're not hearing, or haven't heard? PLEASE tell me! I take requests, and delight in giving you WHAT YOU WANT! As desperate as that sounds, it's actually true!

Again, welcome to English-speaking listeners in Spain, and public radio listeners across Alaska. Let's keep "Saving the 70s!"
