I got three wrong.
I'm not sure if I should be happy that I didn't know stuff that old or if I should have known it and I'm senile. /ccboard/images/graemlins/confused.gif

I misses one...did not know the Big Bopper's real name. Having been a radio disk jockey back in the '70s, I can usually do pretty well with these kinds of questions.
Thanks, dg

I got 3 wrong...but the big bopper's death is a trivia question.... web page (http://www.fiftiesweb.com/crash.htm)
He was a favorite of my cousin Ray's....who had a good heart, but bad arteries, and passed on way before his time.
thanks for the quiz, which brought back some good memories

1976-1980 I was at a rock station, and in addition to doing the morning drive time slot, I was the music director. We did have some disco in the play list, but it was primarily rock. My one claim to fame was that I was the first in the country to play Al Stewart's "Year of the Cat" on the air. I got the promotional copy in, listened to about the first 30 seconds, and rushed it to the studio.
I don't have a lot of stuff left from those days, but I did keep a small personal scrap book of news paper articles.
One of the best perks was the fun stuff we would get involved with. We did a promotion for the circus one time and jocks from all the area radio stations rode elephants in a race across the local mall parking lot. I happened to get the biggest elephant, and as you may know, circus elephants are trained to follow one another in order of size. Me and "Suzy" won every race, but not due to my riding skills! I was just hanging on for dear life! LOL
