Greetings ETHS Class of 1970 Graduate!

As most of you already know, our 50th Reunion has been rescheduled to the weekend of September 9th-12th, 2021.  We have "rebranded" our gathering and the ETHS 50th+1 1970 Reunion now gives us an extra year to plan and promote, promising to be even better than our 50th.  (Ha!)

Our hope is that the Pandemic will be in the rearview mirror by then so that we can safely get together and party like it was 1970!  (Surely you remember how you could party back then. . . )

As we eagerly anticipate this exciting event, we thought it would be fun to take you down Memory Lane with songs that were popular during our senior year at ETHS.  One of our classmates delved into the archives and found the Top 40 lists from June 1970.

Each week, we will entertain you with an email as we count down from song #40 until we reach the #1 hit of June 1970 which will arrive to you in, you guessed it, September 2021.  Just in time for our Reunion. 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 

JUST ADDED!  Would you like to see the hits performed by the original bands? Roger Badesch has created an ETHS 1970 Countdown Video Playlist on YouTube and will update it weekly as the hits are revealed!!  Click here for the link.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

As it happens, song #40 captures the moment and kicks off our weekly tunes by asking a very pertinent question:

"Are You Ready?"

By Pacific Gas and Electric

Well. . . ARE you? 

Because we ARE!
