Before I started this blog, I posted about songs from old AT40s on Facebook, January-July 2017. I’ll be moving them here over time. This entry has been edited somewhat from the original.
When I published this on FB last year, the previous week’s 70s rebroadcast had been the 77 countdown that featured “Blinded by the Light” at #1. Seven years later, Manfred Mann’s last go-round on AT40 popped up. It’s at #36, heading to #22. One wonders how they were allowed to incorporate the Olympic flag (and what I assume is actual footage) into this video. The timing for it was pretty odd, too: the Sarajevo Winter Games had just ended, and the LA Games, with actual track events, weren’t happening until late July.
