    WHAT IS THAT BEEPING SONG THAT PLAYS ON THE 70s ON 7 CHANNEL??

    I love it so much but i have no way of finding the song name as there are no lyrics. It is very out of place for a 70s song. It is on one of the more popular playlists as it is on fairly frequently.

    Thank you,

    Marley

    I'm guessing you heard Popcorn, a 1972 instrumental by Hot Butter. The '70s channel plays it two or three times a week.

    The Dogstar Radio website -- Sirius, "the dog star." Get it? -- has many years of playlists for most of the music channels. Channel 7 is not listed in the dropdown menu but you can see the playlist by going to the '60s channel playlist, changing the 6 to a 7 in the URL and hitting "enter."

    By thanking me, are you saying I correctly identified the "beeping song"? Hot Butter was a sextet from New York. Popcorn was written by Broadway composer/arranger/conductor Gershon Kingsley. His original version appears on his 1969 Music To Moog By album. Here it is:

    My son used to have an Atari 5200 and one of the games he liked was called Pengo. You got to be a penguin and kick ice blocks around and try to squish little bloblike creatures. The music in the game was "Popcorn." I liked the game too and that's why I use the name Penguin.

    Hey y'all, sorry to bogart a thread...Sirius listener care sent me to www.dogstarradio.com but I all I see is a database error message. Am I doing something wrong? IT happens with more detailed URLs as well, i.e. http://www.dogstarradio.com/search_playlist.php

    Thanks!
