FM Rock: August 1973
One last jump into the middle before I decided to strictly work on this series chronologically so as to not skip something that I'll later regret. Rock radio by this point in 1973 was slowly starting to move toward a more coalesced national playlist format but local DJ's still had very wide latitude to inflect the local flavors.
Still, so many of these tracks from this month remain classic rock radio mainstays - Skynyrd, ZZ Top, Allmans, An early rumbling of punk to come rears its head with the New York Dolls album's release which made its way to several rock playlists around the country.
