This past Saturday, Wendy Rice went back to the year 1967 on her Saturday Morning Flashback show on Chicago's WXRT. This was a great high school year for me as I was a sophomore and then junior at Palatine High School in Palatine, Illinois. I started working at Burger King on Northwest Highway (US-14) in Palatine and I met Liz.
I have since had two 1967 vehicles. The first was a 1967 Pontiac Tempest which I drove a lot to school and also to NIU for my Master's Degree. The other one was a 1967 Pontiac Firebird convertible.
These are the songs she played:
I AM THE WALRUS-- Beatles
SWEET SOUL MUSIC-- Arthur Conley
SOUL MAN-- Sam and Dave
(WE AIN'T GOT) NOTHIN' YET-- Blues Magoos
HAPPY JACK-- Who
LET'S LIVE FOR TODAY-- Grass Roots
SUNNY AFTERNOON-- Kinks
EXPRESSWAY TO YOUR HEART-- Soul Survivors
Name That Tune (from above songs): "The Taxman's Taken All My Dough." --RoadDog
