K-Tel's "Right On" from 1976 (Better late than never)

This month on Adventures in Vinyl we are taking a trip back to 1976 for K-Tel's Right On, a great compilation that features a very 70s blonde, decked out in denim, giving the "thumbs up" on the cover.  That's always one of the great things about K-tel:  unadulterated 70s kitsch.  This album was advertised on TV and the woman on the album cover also appears in the commercial, uncomfortably dancing under an array of disco lights.  This could be the best K-Tel commercial ever:

This album features another eclectic collection of hits (and misses).  From Thin Lizzy to the Bay City Rollers, from Paul Anka to Heart, this album is a nice snapshot of popular music in the mid-1970s.  

So, take a nostalgic trip back to 1976 on Adventures in Vinyl.  The show can be heard at the following times (all times Central):

Sunday 4 pm
Tuesday 1 pm 
Wednesday 2 am
Thursday 10 am
Saturday 12 pm (note that this is a change in time.)
