January 1980 Cassette

1-2-13                         January 1980 Cassette

1980.01 K7_NEW

On 1/2/71, the triple LP “All Things Must Pass” by George Harrison charted at No. 1 in the US.  Roger Miller, born 1936.  Chick Churchill of Ten Years After, born 1942.

I made a cassette for each and every month of the 1980’s.  Fortunately, the first box I opened was from 1980.  I don’t think I still have the entire 80’s anymore.  But at least I have enough to start with.  For at least the first 8 months of this year, at the beginning of the month, I will detail what’s on my “Monthly” cassette for that month.  My tapes were typically titled “Misc. Etc.”  As you can see, a lot of January stuff is from the previous year.
