When I was a kid, I'd go to sleep sometimes to music on a crystal set picking up an AM radio station in Kansas City with the headphones perched on my ears. At least I was smart enough not to do it when they were forecasting storms or I might have earned a Darwin Award.

I think most every motor vehicle still has an AM radio. I only have FM radios in my apartment, however. All the traffic situation warning broadcasts seem to be in the AM band. At least they are around here.

Do You Remember Rock N Roll Radio?"

Do you remember Hullabaloo,
Upbeat, Shinding and Ed Sullivan too?
Do you remember rock'n'roll radio?
Do you remember rock'n'roll radio?

Do you remember Murray the K,
Alan Freed, and high energy?
It's the end, the end of the 70's
It's the end, the end of the century

Do you remember lying in bed
With your covers pulled up over your head?
Radio playin' so no one can see
We need change, we need it fast
Before rock's just part of the past
'Cause lately it all sounds the same to me
Oh oh oh oh, oh oh

Will you remember Jerry Lee,
John Lennon, T. Rex and OI Moulty?
It's the end, the end of the 70's
It's the end, the end of the century
