1978 saw Wayne Gretzky playing his first professional hockey game for the Indianapolis Racers. He was traded to the Edmonton Oilers after 25 games. The Montreal Canadiens won their third consecutive Stanley Cup, beating the Boston Bruins 4 games to 2. On radio, in the Top 40 this last week of September 1978, there were some new artists like A Taste of Honey and Chris Rea.
