1979 saw many firsts, like the introduction of the compact disc and Happy Meals at McDonalds. The Dukes of Hazzard and the Littlest Hobo started up in 1979 and Joe Clark became Canada’s youngest Prime Minister, although he didn’t last too long. In the early spring of 1979, songs on the radio included hits by the Doobie Brothers the Village People.
