This is the second post in a series with playlists from my audio reel tapes that were recorded from FM radio broadcasts during the 60’s and 70’s that I liked. I decided to create Spotify playlists so I could listen to the music again, and share with others. And it’s a lot cheaper than converting all those tapes to DVD, and better quality too. This brings back lots of memories for me, and I hope you enjoy them too.
I listened to these songs on Progressive WOWI-FM 103 radio (pronounced Wow-Wee) from Norfolk, Virginia in February 1971 while stationed at Langley Air Force Base during the later stages of the Vietnam War. I attended a Jefferson Airplane concert nearby on the lovely campus of William & Mary in historic Williamsburg, Virginia during July 1972. If interested, I have included old radio broadcasts at the end of this post.
