Aah, 1973. Richard Nixon was president. Bell bottoms were still fashionable. You could still buy soda in returnable bottles.

And our transistor radios were blasting out songs like "Chevy Van" by Sammy Johns.

Yeah, it's a song about a guy in a creeper van. Or is it a love song about a beautiful yet fleeting memory?

The song went to #5 in 1973 and launched Sammy John to the top of the pop culture mountain.

Wait. It was a one hit wonder. One that everybody seemed to want to hear in its entirety on Triple M in 2020.
