We have come a long way from 1978. This was the year that the new immigration act stated that homosexuals were no longer on the list of the “inadmissible class.” New movies in 1978 included Grease and Animal House while TV welcomed a few new shows like WKRP and Dallas. The Trammps and the Bee Gees were 2 of the artists featured on the Top 40 this week in 1978.
