So instead of just that song, which I'll post later, I'm going to put up other things which go along with the general topic of "Souvenirs of the Past".
One I put up earlier is the song "I'm Number 1" by Pac-Man - from back when that was true.

These next things are from generic radio jingle records made by Pepper-Tanner, later the William B. Tanner Company.

There are quite a few of these things still in use today.

Which brings me to the feature song of this post.
When I saw this title on a 45 in the store, I got it, on the off-chance that this was maybe about Olivia Newton-John.
Then when I got home I played it.
Wellll, yeah, it's about her all right. In a way I didn't quite expect.
Apparently, the Most Promising Female Vocalist award winner in country music was getting some flack from a few country fans for her recent pop success. So this song was written as an answer to that.
Now - how Porter Wagoner's suit designer got mentioned in the conversation, I have no idea, but anyway...
This was the flip-side to Stella Parton's 1975 country hit "I Want to Hold You in My Dreams Tonight".

I think I have my pick for the 2 songs I'd love to hear a radio station play back-to-back: this, followed by "Physical".
I'll close this post with a remnant of another thing that looks like it's on the way out. This is from another Pepper-Tanner record made for use on radio stations.
