In my years of recording music off the radio, I almost always was able to get the name of the song and the artist written down, so I would know what was on my tapes.
However, there were songs that either I missed hearing what was said about the song, or some songs were played where the announcer simply did not identify the title or artist. All of these are songs that I enjoy, but I would enjoy them more if I knew this additional information.
Here is how you can help! Take a listen to these songs, and if you can provide corrected information (the correct title, the correct artist name, the year it was released, and the album from which it came), send me a note via the Contact Page. Just identify the letter of the song, and give me your thoughts.
I wish I could make this a contest, and offer a prize for the most answers or something. All I can offer is my sincerest thanks!
