Guilty Pleasures Month Day 2

Sometimes, a guilty pleasure is all about the memory it is connected to.  The summer of 1979 brought this 11 year old the special treat of Chicagofest on Navy Pier.  I was there for one of the earlier farewell concerts of the Doobie Brothers

There were lots of things to do, there were Arcades and Comedians and lots of things that an 11 year old in 1979 didn't understand, but the thing I received and understood was a promotional give away from WLUP.  It was a 45rpm record with 2 tracks per side..

I still own that record and it lead me directly to today's guilty pleasure song--Romeo's Tune by Steve Forbert.
