SOTW -- Classic KISS -- "Calling Dr. Love"


This week, we are dusting off a 1977 45 rpm record, featuring KISS and "Calling Dr. Love."

This is an original disc from my collection, purchased during my "Kiss Phase" when growing up. I had my favorite KISS character, of course. I really liked Peter Criss and drew his face everywhere. I had a Paul Stanley poster in my "area" in the crawlspace (which, incidentally, was still there when my parents moved a few years ago.)

My Junior High, in 1976, won a contests and KISS even played a show in the gym. That was a few years before I was a student there, but everybody was talking about it.

If you haven't seen the new A&E Biography special, KISStory, do it. It is a great trip down memory lane.

"Calling Dr. Love" premieres at 11am July 7, 2021 and repeats again at 11pm (Eastern). Plus, catch it throughout the week.

The Song of the Week -- "Lilywhite" by Cat Stevens

This song eluded me for a long time. That is, until I watched After Life, a series on Netflix written and directed by Ricky Gervais. He also stars as Tony, a man who is struggling with the death of his wife. This song ended Season 1, and it is now the SOTW.  Listen Wednesday, at 11am and 11pm, EST -- and throughout the week.
