The Clash - 'London Calling'

Saturday Morning Flashback1979 was the year of Three Mile Island, Jane Byrne’s election as the first female mayor of Chicago, the end of “The Mary Tyler Moore Show”, and Apocalypse Now. Of course, the music is always the star of the show, and from the Clash to the Knack, we played as many songs from 1979 as four hours would allow!

    Good Lord! Was that really 31 years ago? I remember it vividly. I saw Kiss for the first time that year in L.A. at the Forum. Many fond memories.

  2. Jim Blaha says:

    My first year (of six) I lived in San Francisco…during PUNK’s heyday!

  3. Joe G says:

    I think you missed one – “Things I do for Money” by the Northern Pikes. It was about 30 minutes in, right before the Specials song.
