It was 30 years ago today -- Playlist no. 1

It can't be true but I cannot tell a lie -- my first radio show on 91.7 FM in Milwaukee was 30 years ago this week. May 14, 1980 to be exact. It was on a Wednesday night from about 6:15 pm to 8 pm (seems I had a problem getting the transmitter started). The station was then known as WSOE and it was supposedly just an MSOE campus station but the signal carried a few miles beyond that. The DJ who was on after me was -- Jules! She started there in 1977 as an actual MSOE student DJ.
In honor (and horror) of my very first show, I listened to the tape and logged the playlist. It is eclectic, as they say. Oldies (they weren't on the radio at the time, so it was sort of cool), FM rock stuff (more like the late lamented WZMF than market leaders at the time WLPX and WQFM) -- oh, and some of the acts that 'MSE made famous in Milwaukee like the Jam, the Clash and Jonathan Richman. Here goes....
