This afternoon at 1:28, I’ll play a KOOL Turntable Tune from 1974.  It’s a one-hit wonder from a band that, in reality, is just a bunch of studio musicians.  The song’s lyrics include over 100 music and pop culture references of the day…all in 3 minutes 25 seconds!  They go so fast, it’s unlikely you’ve ever caught them all.
