Today's Tickets @ 2 Song: "(In A) Big Country" by Big Country

Did You Know: “Heart Of Glass” By Blondie

This afternoon’s ‘Tickets @ 2’ song is “Heart Of Glass” by Blondie. Blondie’s members Debbie Harry and Chris Stein (who were later married) wrote the first version of the song in early 1974. They didn’t have a proper title for the song, and would refer to it as “The Disco Song.” Harry explained: “Lyrically, it was about a stalker who was pursuing me, and Chris saved me from him.

Harry and Stein wrote the song in their dingy New York apartment. Debbie explained: “I was tired of hearing girl singers write or sing about being beaten by love. So I said, there are a lot of girls who just walk away.”

When you hear the 1978 # 1 hit between two and three we’ll take caller # 7 at 1-800-232-KRTH (5784) to win a 4-Pack of tickets to see the Dream Works Animated “Turbo” courtesy of the Auto Club.
