The Infulence of Music for a Suburban Kid in the 1970’s

Looking back, the first ten albums I ever owned HIGHLY influenced my life, my future choices in music (and my choice in boyfriends, and jobs, and friends, and . . . you get the picture, right?) In no particular order, here they are:

Genesis – Foxtrot
Led Zepplin Four
Foghat – Fool for the City
Fleetwood Mac – Rumors
Chicago – Greatest
Kansas – Leftoveture
The Who – Tommy
Rolling Stones – Some Girls
Kiss – Destroyer
Doobie Brothers – Listen to the Music (Greatest Hits)

And in the number eleven spot – Queen. Anything and everything Queen.

This was FM radio in the late 70’s. This was KFOG. This was KOME. This is what I lived and loved to listen to in my little suburbia world .
And then I heard the Clash for the first time . . .
