In 1977, robots were all the rage. After all, the most popular movie of the year introduced the world to two of the most famous robots of all time: R2-D2 and C3PO. It would only make sense that K-Tel would cash in by putting the previous most famous robot on the cover of it's new compilation album, Music Machine. That robot is, of course, "Robby" from Forbidden Planet and Lost in Space. Here, he dances to the various hits of 1977 in the commercial aired for the album:
Adventures in Vinyl. It is actually a pretty good album. In fact, all but one of the songs appears on the Year End Billboard Hot 100. On this album you will find Foreigner, Andy Gibb, K.C. and the Sunshine Band, Manfred Mann, Elton John and even Bill Conti with his theme song to the movie Rocky.
The album came with two posters as well: one of Andy Gibb and the other of K.C. from K.C. and the Sunshine Band.
Adventures in Vinyl can be heard on Saturday morning 11 am (CT), Sunday at 4 pm (CT), Tuesday 1 pm (CT), Wednesday 2 am (CT) and Thursday 10 am (CT).
This may be the last chance to hear Adventures in Vinyl. We have been on the air for a year and our subscription on Live365 will run out February 3. We are not sure we will be continuing the station. If you've been listening for awhile, thank you.
