We rode the weekly time machine, Saturday Morning Flashback, to 1974, a tumultuous year where we saw the President resign his office and an heiress kidnapped by homegrown terrorists. There was a rumble and a bungle in the jungle and you had to learn to drive 55.

Mel Brooks made us laugh with send-ups of Western and Horror movies. And daredevils attempted to hurtle themselves over peaceful canyons. But the depth and breadth of the music never ceased.
