Who would expect that this year's total would exceed the $14,000 mark in 100 hours of Radiothon '80. J03 Kathy Schoenlein kicked off Radiothon '80 as some big money was pledged from the start with the Ma- rine Hymn being the first popular request. Phones started to ring as pledges anywhere from $1 to $25 were called in to request their favorite songs. From the very start, it seemed that the radiothon would either be a MARINE-A-THON or a R0CK-A-TH0N. By three o'clock, the amount pledged had reached $700. The Marines were working hard to keep the Marine Hymn in the top-of-the-hour slot and to keep Patrol Squadron 46 in check with the dedication of Aerosmiths' "My Big Ten Inch." The Marines were taking over the show with the first two songs of each hour. It was the half hour slot that provided an exciting chain of events. "Tie A Yellow Ribbon" was to last only a short time. With the help of the friends and neigh- bors of Skip Groce, he was "Back In The Saddle Again" with a shaky imi- tation of Gene Autry's well known rendition. It was the Naval Faci- lity who pledeged $ 359 tr» hear tne tune "Hot Stuff" by Donna Summers that replaced "Tie a Yellow Ribbon." See Radiothon on page 3
