Well, I would have bought Moonlight Feels Right for the marimba solo alone. I would have simply taken the needle and moved it there every time, which must have been the nicest advantage of that kind of medium. As for Afternoon Delight and other travesties, wouldn't you have to say that most of the 1976 AM radio was extra special bad? After all wasn't that also the year of Play That Funky Music White Boy, Muscrat Love and 1000 other hideous songs still discussed in shocked terms today?

No wonder disco soon took over. You also have to think that drugs back then must have been off the chain.
