Top 96 Songs Of The 1970's

On Sunday, December 2nd, 2012, I had the pleasure of revealing our “Top 96 Songs Of The 1970’s.”  We polled voters, motors, and freeloaders…scientists, paleontologists and pessimists…pretty much asked everyone we could find what they thought, and came up with a list that represented the tastes of the masses.  As unscientific as it gets, but it was fun to play all 96 songs.  Here’s the full list for your review (and debating).  – Charlie T.

Off to the Races!


NASCAR racing season kicks off tomorrow  (Saturday 4/7) at the All American Speedway...Placer Co Fairgrounds in Roseville.  Gates at 4, racing at 5..looks like the weather will cooperate this weekend!   Years ago, I had a chance to sit in as official videographer for a few races. Perched in a crow's nest above one of the turns, I felt like I was right ON TOP of the action..and it was exhilarating!  You'll get a similar feel in the stands...4 divisions to check out. Lots o' fun for the kids...don't forget the earplugs!  More info at www.allamericanspeedway.com  (where the picture comes from).

Ozzy 1987 "Tribute" to Randy Rhoads

It was 30 yrs ago this week that Randy Rhoads died..as the plane he was on-board crashed while it was buzzing Ozzy's tour bus. Then...25 yrs ago this month...Ozzy joined me in studio, as we played the just-released Tribute album in its entirety--on a turntable!  I KNOW it was Ozzy, cuz he had  O-Z-Z-Y tattooed on his knuckles.  Ozzy expressed genuine sadness over the loss of such a talent as Randy, my fave Ozzy guitarist because of his classically inspired metal riffs.  BUT...what I also felt from Oz..was a sincere sense of FAMILY as he chatted on about his 2 small kids...Jack & Kelly.   SO..it was no surprise to ME that the Osbournes was such a strangely compelling TV show, some 20 yrs later.  I wonder if the new cartoon the F*n Osbournes will have the same appeal??

REAL CORKERS

Ran into these 4 ladies (& their male companions) at Shenandoah Vineyards last Saturday--during the Behind the Cellar Door event in Amador County. If you look CLOSELY, you'll see--besides their techni-color hair--each of them is wearing a vest made entirely of CORKS.  Marvel at their handiwork--and the number of wine bottles that had to be EMPTIED to obtain those corks.  Enjoyed spending some time with these folks, as WE emptied several more tasty bottles.  Many wineries are now bottling their wines using screw-tops....but it JUST won't be the same--certainly when it comes to hand-made clothing.

Ozzy!

Ozzy will be in Sac Friday night for a book-signing at Barnes & Noble on Arden.  His new book is "Trust Me, I'm Dr. Ozzy"--and it reminded me of the afternoon I spent 0n-air with him in 1987.  Note the TURNTABLE  tracking his vinyl album..the Randy Rhoads tribute.  After chatting with the Prince of Darkness for a while--about the tragic loss of Randy..about his music--but also about his FAMILY life (his kids were basically toddlers at the time)...it occurred to me that here was a legendary rock god, fighting his demons, while also dealing with everyday family issues that all of us have encountered in our own family unit!  --so, it was NO surprise to me when the Ozzy MTV reality show was such a curious hit.   And it also won't surprise me if his book becomes a best-seller.  The man has some stories to tell--even if you have a hard time UNDERSTANDING him when he tells them.
