    1. On this day in 1981 {September 22nd} Marty Balin was a guest on the CBS-TV weekday-afternoon television program, 'The Merv Griffin Show'…

      At the time his "Atlanta Lady (Something About Your Love)" was at position #60 on Billboard's Top 100 chart, four weeks later it would peak at #27 {for 3 weeks} and it spent thirteen weeks on the Top 100…

      Besides "Atlanta Lady", the Cincinnati, Ohio native had two other Top 100 records, "Hearts" {#8 in 1981} and "What Love Is" {#63 in 1983}…

      Marty Balin, born Martyn Jerel Buchwald, passed away at the age of 76 on September 27th, 2018…

      May he R.I.P.

    2. Sweet sweet voice for a sweet sweet man! Helped people that were attacked by Hells Angels at Altamont and got beaten up, as well. We miss you already, Marty!

    3. RIP Marty. There's just something about you. I miss you and I hope you and Paul and Signe and maybe Spencer or Joey Covington are getting it together up there.

    4. RIP Marty, truly a distinctive voice from the era. 15 y/old the time, but remember your songs and voice along with Starship & Airplane on the airwaves back then…

    5. Today Marty went home to be with our Lord. This very morning one of his songs was playing in my head. Were you trying to tell me you'd gone, Marty? Did you know how very much I love your music, admired you. Thank You for what you left us with.

    6. Hearts I still hear here and there, but THIS is what "lost 80s" is about. Almost have NEVER heard this since current. BTW, I still teasingly call this song "Alana lady".
