Road train

In April 1976 I was too young to know what was in the music charts. If I did, I would have known that the number 7 song on 3XY's music charts was Convoy by C.W. McCall. Even then, I didn't become aware of this song until some years later when it was featured in "Radio Bart," the thirteenth episode of The Simpsons third season.

I well remember that song (and now I have it stuck in my head!). :) I was 16 at the time and the CB radio craze was in full bore, as was popular culture fascination with truckers, thanks I suppose to Smokey and the Bandit. I never knew it found new life on the Simpsons.

I didn't know that McCall had other hits, and went on to serve as Mayor of Ouray, Colorado, between 1986 and 1992.
