Our regular journey to the past found us in 1977 for this week's Saturday Morning Flashback.

The bad news included losing the King of Rock & Roll, Elvis Presley, at age 42 in August. The good news immersed us in a musical year that saw the emergence of Punk, New Wave and Disco all competing for our attention. The old guard were still vital as Steely Dan and Fleetwood Mac both released career-defining albums. 

Star Wars and Saturday Night Fever were enormous hits at the movies...which could be seen for $2.25. Here's the playlist from this week's show, at no cost to you....
