Bay City Roller

The Bay City Rollers were a Scottish pop band whose popularity was highest in the mid 1970s. The British Hit Singles & Albums noted that they were tartan teen sensations from Edinburgh , and were the first of many acts heralded as the 'Biggest Group since The Beatles' and one of the most screamed-at teeny-bopper acts of the 1970s .

Is this Bay City Roller frontman Les McKeown? Is it Lionel Blair having a bad hair day in his hay day? Or could it be Look East Floor Manager Stephen Bumfrey in 1983?

Plus, you'll hear all the groovy tunes on your wireless this week in 1972 and 1983. After 2pm...Benedict Martin tells us all things Horrible History, The Tea Pad Orchestra treat us to live music ahead of their show at The Bicycle Shop and we have an hour of the 50's with Rocking Roland.

Tomorrow on Radio Real Estate we will be drawing for the Front and Center Fair concert package PLUS I will be giving away tickets to Billy Currington and Oakridge Boys concert as well as "Roar and Rumble:. I'm feeling like Santa in August thanks to my great friends at the Northwest Washington Fair. Also Roger Roosendaal will join me in the studio. Studio number is (360)676-KGMI if you'd like to participate or listen in live anywhere on the planet on Podcast at KGMI.com. Hard to believe we're in our 13th year on air and it's so much fun giving goodies away to our loyal listeners, friends and colleagues. Congrats to Bonnie Vanderyacht who will be joining us front row at every concert including "Heart" as she won the drawing for Front and Center Tickets earlier this week at "Marin" Project. So what "Heart" song was your favorite and what were you doing when "Barracuda" was at the top of the charts? I was selling shoes in Pacific Center mall in Vancouver and the "Hot" style was Bay City Roller plaid runners. ...
The Roobs were were different. They were professionals. They were white, younger, older... born out of time into a world of Blue Oyster Cult and sideburns and bloat. They were punk rock. They didn't know it. They played everything. They confused people. They were on American Bandstand. You can see it on YouTube. It was anything but controversial. But they wore those wild Bay City Roller tartan super-bells. I learned alot watching the Rubinoos.
What a day..went from a water leak to heading out for my Dr. appt driving down freeway singing at the top of my lungs to my new Bay City Roller cd and went past the exit. Then the Dr found a different skin cancer on my leg and had to have a biopsy. POOP..she said it was one like I had to have cut out last time... :( ouch
Day 74 ~ STAYIN ALIVE; DISCO IS DEAD! Sadly, two disco greats died in the last few days, Donna Summer and Robin Gibb. I was only 10 years old when the era of disco was in it's full glory. I made my mother buy me a pair of skin tight pink satin pants, and my friends and I practiced dancing to all the disco hits. We went to the local teen club, known as 'The Centre', and watched with envy as the older kids moved with ease and palpable sex appeal to the beat. They wore flared pants, tight Bay City Roller teeshirts, and fabulous stacked heeled shoes, known as 'soul' shoes. Their hair was layered and flicked Farrah style, they smoked Dunhill, and wore long belted suede coats with large collars. I was just a little too young, and a little too English to be fully immersed in this era. It was a tantalizing American time; glamorous and sexy. The Brits love their pop music, flashy clothes and dancing, and embraced this aspect of Americana willingly. Not all though, there was a backlash of hatred for DISCO by the RO ...
