Really fond of the one hit wonders this week - The Cate Brothers from northwest Arkansas, and the Gunhill Road tune, which I used to hear a lot by way of WLS out of Chicago. Neither song charted very high, but both stayed on the Hot 100 a good while. Also, the "almost one hit wonder" from Crawler, a band initially started by former Free guitarist Paul Kossoff, though he died from an overdose before this song was recorded.

May I suggest Desert Moon - Dennis DeYoung...and Girls with Guns - Tommy Shaw. WLS AM was still playing top 40 in 1984 so it fits "early 80's on the AM dial". Those two had top 10 and top 40 hits, respectively from their first solo records after Styx went on hiatus and never cracked the top 40 again with their solo stuff ever again! Maybe a good pair of tunes to wrap up a show featuring Chicagoland radio and artists.
