Next Up: Block Buster, 1976

I was 8 years old when I got Block Buster.  It was 1976.  The year before Star Wars.  Yeah, that was a defining moment in my life.  Up until then, all I had was K-Tel albums like this. 

And this is a good one:  Block Buster.  It must have been released early 1976 as most of the songs are from the previous year.  "Fly, Robin, Fly" by the Silver Convention.  "Sky High," by Jigsaw.  "Swearin' to God" by Frankie Valli.  "That's the Way (I Like It" by K.C. and the Sunshine Band.

And my favorite in this collection:  "Why Can't We Be Friends?" by War.

Block Buster is the featured K-Tel album on Adventures in Vinyl this month. You can hear the album in its entirety on Saturday mornings at 11 am (CT) and Sunday afternoons at 4 pm (CT).

In addition, Adventures in Vinyl can be heard whenever you want.  That's right. If you want to hear Adventures in Vinyl on Wednesday at 1 pm, you can.  Just send us an email or call us at 206-350-9978 and we will play the episode at your convenience.  How's that for service?

Adventures in Vinyl is the only radio show dedicated to the lost art of the K-Tel record compilation.
