This explains the cheesy bits of my music taste

Looking back on the top hits of the radio station I worshipped in high school, I find a lot of dinosaur rock and power pop mixed in with the new wave and punk. See http://earlhoward.com/kroq_1980.htm and http://earlhoward.com/kroq_1981.htm and even http://earlhoward.com/kroq_1982.htm for details.

  1. Wow!
    The 1981 and 1982 lists perfectly describe why I loved that station during those years. The 1985 list perfectly describes why I returned to listening to Rush, Yes, Zepplin, and Tull.
