I almost immediately recognized after posting that I JUST played The Guess Who b-side back in the spring. Great song, but sorry! I do my best not to repeat songs within a year, but I occasionally screw up. Like this week. But moving on from that, I have two of my favorite non-hits late in the program, with Poco's "Ghost Town" and Hotel's "Half Moon Silver". The Fogelberg song is completely random, the ELO song has Marc Bolan playing guitar alongside Jeff Lynne, the Andy Kim song is an admitted guilty pleasure (and a REALLY good pop song), and the Elton tune was his first single release in America, that in SPITE of its catchiness, went absolutely nowhere. Oh, and the Wal-Mart ad, announcing their grand total of stores circa 1975. As always, hope you like what you hear!
