The first time I heard KC & The Sunshine Band was in second grade in 1975 on a record player. For those of you too young to remember, a record player looked (and still do, if you can find them) like this:
Now that we were listening to this album might not have been so shocking — well besides the fact that we were in second grade listening to the original bump-n-grind music– except where I grew up was Pennsylvania. Specifically, I was born and raised in a rural part of the state where the main (no, only) ethnicity was white as a Saltine cracker box except for the occasional black Sambos in people’s yards.
(Just for clarification while KC was a white guy, Harry Wayne Casey, but as you can see from the video above, his band was made up of a multitude of ethnicities. Strangely enough, later, as teens, we dug this rap group too that literally broke down walls and this artist.)
The girl who introduced our class to the new LP she had just gotten, I think, for Christmas, was none other than one of my nemeses: Robyn Richards, whom I’ve mentioned previously after getting spanked by Leigh from Leighonline in Humor Blogs Fantasy League Football.
Robyn would beat up on me regularly. She would sit on me and spank me, which I think I liked it in a totally (yeah, right) prepubescent non-sexual way. Now in retrospect, I think maybe that’s the way, uh-huh, uh-huh, I liked it.
