My mom ordered this and played it over and over on our console turntable. Oh how I hated this album collection after time....

The voiceover sounds like Bill "Rosko" Mercer, a veteran New York disc jockey (ex WOR-FM 98.7, WNEW-FM 102.7 and WKTU 92.3).

As for this compilation . . . it was first issued by Columbia in 1972 (KG 31345). And is it me, or was the pitch of the songs goosed up by about 3 percent for this ad?

I know some people was mad as heck that night, lol!! The way the words at the bottom of the screen was soooo slow that I can't imagine how the people felt waiting for the numbers to see if they won, lol!!!

It would be interesting to hear an aircheck of the early Loop...get an idea of what they were putting out on the airwaves before they went personality-driven, unabashedly hardcore rock.

It says video not found or access denied. I can't play it at all.

Was that pilot they're talking to high? What was the matter with him?

It used a red/white/blue motif. That wouldn't do today, too offensive. Now it would be pink, cream and aqua, with a vegan represented just so no one feels left out.

So much better than Ving Rhames bellowing "AW-Bee's! We have duh Meats!"

I miss those big cans of Hi-C Citrus Cooler - it was the perfect drink to go with brown sugar cinnamon Pop Tarts.

Where do you guys think you're going? Have some beer before you go out driving on those dark, icy roads!
