My first radio station job was in the summer of '88 and I was working at a small FM country music station in my hometown of Clarkston, Washington. Radio Broadcasting was so different back in those days, it was before compact discs and computers,so we played music off vinyl records called 45's.
I remember my mom kept calling the request line over and over for a certain song, it was her favorite at the time and it's a perfect song to celebrate with on this Mother's Day.
Nope... It's not "Mama Tried" by Merle Haggard.
