I certainly didn't plan to feature two Lost Rock Tracks Of The Week
from the same year, let alone the same season of the year. Nevertheless, two tracks from the Summer of '82 are featured this week--both by, IMHO, two criminally underrated bands.
April Wine--If You See Kay (1982)
From the Power Play
album, this track and Enough Is Enough
--another awesome track--were both in heavy AOR rotation during said Summer. I feel that the aforementioned tracks and All Over Town
from 1981's The Nature Of The Beast
are/were their best AOR radio tracks.
This chorus of this track raised a lot of eyebrows because it sounds as if the band is slowly spelling a, ahem, certain word that never would have passed the censors. Coincidence? I love this track and band. Well worth a listen.

Shooting Star--Breakout (1982)
This Kansas City-based band was an early 80's fixture on AOR radio with several tracks from a handful of LPs receiving significant airplay. I hate to appear lazy, but a Google/Wikipedia search will provide you with more AOR radio tracks than I can list here.
This track, from the album Hang On For Your Life
was/is particularly memorable to me. Not to mention, it kicks total, well, you know what.

I hope that you enjoy these tracks.
