Been thinking about some of the music we were listening to back in the old Oshkosh days (must have heard something on the radio). Decided to check some old cassette tapes and albums to see what I could come up with (finally got rid of the 8 tracks Mel, so no help there).

Seems to me we had Springsteen, Mellencamp, Petty---not much different there. Then there was Bob Seeger, Jackson Browne, Pat Benetar. Of course the tail end of the disco era and all that went along with that. Then there was the Urban Cowboy period and the country and country rock with the likes of Skynard, Marshall Tucker, the Outlaws....

I'm trying to remember some of the floor favorites---Tommie with Rod Stewart, Shoobie with Cheap Trick, Fleetwood Mac and ELO, Phil and one of my favs (Doucette), and of course the Cedarburg guys with that damn REO. Also seem to remember a lot of Meatloaf and progressive parties......

am sure I am forgetting a lot--somebody help me..... be continued......
