Would you like to go see George Thorogood at the Inn of the Mountain Gods this Sunday for free? Listen for the 101 # 1 Song of the Day and replay and call 527 1011. Caller number ten wins to tickets from 101 Gold!
The 101 number one song of the day comes from one of the 70s most popular bands. But they also had their share of critics which included some of rock’s most influential writers.
One wrote, “I dislike the (band) with the same adolescent fervor that I reserved for the BMOC in my prep school and for many of the same reasons: fear, politics, style, envy.” The writer went on to opine that “if they weren’t so successful they wouldn’t be worth disliking so much.” On February 26, 1977 they scored their third number one and this is it – for the Eagles,
New Kid in Town.
