Blast From The Past -- How It Used To Be

As most of you know, and if you didn't you do now ... ISLAND/DEF JAM/MERCURY N.E. Regional Promotion dude DAVE REYNOLDS is from TORONTO, CANADA, eh! He was digging through some old stuff in storage -- probably looking for something to put on eBAY -- and found a copy of an old CANADIAN trade publication from 1972, called "Playlist." This one features a new artist ... JIM CROCE!
See, they used to use something antiquated called the Postal Service to get things like this to radio stations -- a few days to a week behind when something actually happened. And everyone at the station would fight for a look at it! No kidding! Check it out, a 1972 edition of "Playlist," right here.
