    I was only 9 years old in 1970. That’s the year my baby sister was born. The 70s produced some great hits and many are still my favorites today.

    It was nice to get a bit of music education with these introductions! Happy MM to you, my friend and thanks for joining us on Monday’s Music Moves Me! =D

    I really don’t remember these two groups probably because I was too young at the time, and these were not groups that my mother listened to.

    Both first for me. I liked the 2nd better than the first. I think he might have been hitting the “rainbow”. *grins*

    Good stuff.

    Sorry getting here so late this week.
