Saturday Morning Flashback: 1976 [Playlist]

January 16, 2018
Can more cultural touchstones be crammed into 366 days? Yes, even with a leap year, there was a lot going on in 1976. We had a Presidential race (Gerald Ford & Jimmy Carter). The Winter & Summer Olympics (including Men's Decathlon Gold Medal winner, Bruce Jenner). The Concorde supersonic jet began flying across the Atlantic really fast. Viking 1 becomes the first U.S. spacecraft to land on Mars. The Apple computer company is founded. Water Tower Place opens. The first Punk single is released in the U.K. (The Damned- "New Rose"). And it was America's 200th birthday; coast-to-coast celebrations and a shiny new Bicentennial quarter. Here's the playlist from our 42-year time trek....
