[gallery][gallery] It didnât seem to matter that we cried and told her no.
Kim told us it was time, she really had to go.
She wants to go home to Dallas, to be with her mom and dad.
Just in case youâre wondering, we told her Dallas was BAD.
Even Alex says heâll miss her, theyâve become quite a team.
Heâs hoping soon heâll wake up and her news was a bad dream.
But alasâ¦yes, sheâs leaving, so hereâs some pics to reminisce.
We love ya Kimâ¦best of luck---& from your family at Majic---a big kiss.

Below are videos we dug up of songs from the 1970's that will make you go "oh wow, I remember that one!"Sammy Davis Jr.-The Candy ManIt's Sammy, baby! Doing his #1 hit from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. Try NOT to smile and sing a long...I bet you know every word!David Naughton-Makin' ItDavid was the guy from the "I'm a Pepper" Dr. Pepper TV commericals. David actually had a brief TV show based on this song.Andy Gibb-Love Is Thicker Than WaterAndy Gibb. Died so young of a drug overdose. In the late '70s he had gotten as big as his brothers, the Bee Gees. Do you remember that he was also the host for a brief time of "Solid Gold"?The Babys-Isn't It TimeLead singer John Waite became famous as a solo act in the '80s with his song "Missing You." However, with the Babys he had two big hits...Everytime I Think of You and this one.Olivia Newton-John-Deeper Than the NightIn the latter part of the '70s Olivia's career was on fire. Grease, Xanadu (oops)...this song got high on the charts but is one of her forgotten hits...and she looks beautiful in the video.John Travolta-Let Her InUh, speaking of Grease, remember John Travolta's brief solo career? This song came out prior to Grease and Saturday Night Fever, during his Vinnie Barbarino days on Welcome Back Kotter.Bo Donaldson & the Heywoods-Billy Don't Be a HeroShe warned him not to be a hero...of course, Billy wouldn't listen. Did she grieve when he died? No...she threw the letter informing her of his death away.Brick-Dazz"Dazz" was the combination of disco and jazz. This song remains one of the funkiest tunes ever, although often lost in the discussion of the biggest funk songs of the '70s...and check out the FLUTE solo!Salicat-Motorcylce MamaYou get serious extra credit if you remember this hit from 1972!Maxine Nightingale-Lead Me OnOne of the slow dance favorites at the discos in 1979. Not only do you get to see Maxine in the video but you get Dick Clark from American Bandstand too! Earlier in her career Maxine had a huge hit with "Right Back Where We Started From."Sanford Townsend Band-Smoke From A Distant FireA one hit wonder for sure...this song with the wailin' sax shot up to number one. Everyone expected big things from them but they never produced another big hit.Shaun Cassidy-That's Rock N RollTeen Idol David Cassidy's younger brother Shaun had a brief career of his own, starring on TV's "Hardy Boys" and burnin' up the music charts with "Hey Deanie", Da Do Ron Ron" and this one.Burton Cummings-Stand TallBurton sang for the Canadian rock band The Guess Who before launching a solo career with this song.Crystal Gayle-Don't It Make My Brown Eyes BlueRemember her amazing long hair?Meatloaf-Two Out of Three Ain't BadThis song was so different and completely stood out from everything else on the radio.Coven-One Tin SoldierFrom the movie "Billy Jack".The Sweet-Little WillyThe Sweet had other hits such as "Love is Like Oxygen", "Fox on the Run" and "Ballroom Blitz." Their outfits and hair were pure early '70s glam.The Floaters-Float OnYes! Remember this one? Each of the singers reveals his Zodiac sign and tells the ladies why they should go with them to love land.Roger Voudouris-Get Used To ItRoger came and went in a flash...maybe it was because his last name was hard to pronounce.Randy VanWarmer-Just When I Needed You MostOK, wimpy and whiney...but the guy did have a crystal clear voice!Ozark Mountain Daredevils-Jackie Blue"If You Wanna Get To Heaven" was another hit by OMD...Jackie Blue was their biggest.Tavares-It Only Takes A MinuteThey brought you "Heaven Must Be Missing An Angel", a version of "More Than A Woman" and this "timeless" song.David Dundas-Jeans OnThis song started off as a commercial jingle in England...and we all know England's jingles are our hit songs.Michael Jackson-BenMichael sings the theme song from a movie about a rat.Patrick Hernandez-Born To Be AliveWe were born to be alive. When it came to disco, lyrics were for the most part irrelevant.Bobby Sherman-Easy Come, Easy Go
Bobby! The early '70s teen idol dances his way back into your heart!Leo Sayer-Long Tall Glasses
I know you remember "You Make Me Feel Like Dancing" and "When I Need You", but do you remember this one, his first chart hit from 1975?Sniff 'N the Tears-Driver's Seat
A very cool song that belongs on your ipod.Leif Garrett-I Was Made For Dancing
All all all all night long.Roger Whitaker-The Last Farewell
When you hear this one again, it will be hard for you to believe that not only did this song make the top 40 charts but was a BIG hit!Jigsaw-Sky High1975 was a pivotal year in '70s music...disco was getting huge with KC and the Sunshine Band and others. You had everything from country (Rhinestone Cowboy) to rock (Bad Company) to disco and pop. Britain's Jigsaw hit number 3 with this one hit wonder.Edison Lighthouse-Love Grows(Where My Rosemary Goes)
Mainly a group of studio musicians from England who performed and had hit songs as several different groups. Lead singer Tony Burrows is NOT the guy in this video. For some reason there was no Milli Vannilli fallout over that back in the day.Reunion-Life Is A Rock(But the Radio Rolled Me)
We radio people love songs about radio. This fast-talker mentions a catalog of artists from the era. Can you keep up with him? I'll start you off...BB Bumble and the Stingers, Mott the Hoople, Ray Charles Singers...now you're on your own!Michael Johnson-Bluer Than Blue
Now, THIS is how to do a sad song.LTD-Back In Love Again
LTD came along in the funky mid-to-late 70's when bands like the Commodores and Parliament were all over the airwaves. Lead singer Jeffrey Osborne later left the group and had a successful solo career.Carpenters-We've Only Just Begun
OK, so maybe Karin Capenter dressed like she was auditioning for Little House on the Prairie...but did she not have the greatest voice in pop music history?Climax Blues Band-Couldn't Get It RightSpeaking of voices, the lead singer for CBB had a very cool set of pipes too.Bee Gees-Nights On Broadway
Not one of their first hits that come to mind---the Saturday Night Fever songs are most remembered...but this one and Jive Talkin' are the songs that brought the Bee Gees back to the US charts in 1975.Leblanc and Carr-FallingThese guys almost look too cool to sing such a sweet and syrupy song. Do you remember it?Dr. Hook-Sharing The Night Together
The same guys that gave you "Cover of the Rolling Stone" swept us off our feet in 1978 with this one.Stampeders-Sweet City Woman
When you watch the video you'll see that this band was a big deal in Canada but had only one hit in the US. Possibly the only hit song ever to mention macaroons.Bay City Rollers-Saturday Night
The tartan invasion!Defranco Family-Heartbeat It's a Love Beat
The kid was ripping off Donnie Osmond and the rest were channeling the Partridge Family. Pay special attention to the dance moves...you may need them in group therapy some day.Donnie Osmond-Puppy Love
Since we played the kid who ripped off Donnie, we feel obligated to give the Dancing with the Stars champion his due here.Gino Vanelli-I Just Wanna Stop
It was all about the hair.There you have it! What other lost songs would you love to see and hear again?

Ahhhh, Tricky Dick. Richard Nixon. He was our president in the late '60s through the early '70s...until he was caught obstructing justice and overseeing break-ins at the Democratic headquarters at the Watergate and forced to resign from office. Later he was pardoned for all crimes by his successor Gerald Ford. Although he also did things like bomb Cambodia during the Vietnam war, he also is credited with opening the door to the west with China. With the events of his life in mind we've put together a little list of songs that Mr. Nixon may have had on his ipod.

Shuffle Through History allows us to take a trip back in time and speculate what famous people may have had on their ipod...if they had ipods. This week we go back to 1492. Christopher Columbus needs some tunes for a long boat ride he's taking. Here's what he's come up with so far. What would you add to his list?America- Neil DiamondSailing- Christopher CrossCome Sail Away- StyxCloser To Home- Grand Funk RailroadRide Captain Ride- Blues ImageThe Last Farewell- Roger WhitakerAll Around The World- Lisa StansfieldSailing- Rod StewartShips- Barry ManilowScenes From an Italian Restaurant- Billy JoelCalypso- John DenverSon of a Son of a Sailor- Jimmy BuffettWreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald- Gordon LightfootSea Cruise- Frankie FordBeyond the Sea-Bobby Darin
Majic 95.5 wonders what famous people would have had on their ipods. Today we go back to Nero, who became Emperor of Rome before his 17th birthday. Emperor Nero supposedly played his fiddle while Rome burned in 64 AD. Alas, Romans did not have the fiddle at this point in history but it is a good story. Most historians believe he actually sang as Rome burned. So, it only makes sense that Nero would have needed some inspiration as he looked down on the furnace that Rome had become in July of that year. What would he be rockin' to? Here's what we think...what would you add to the list?
Light My Fire - The DoorsFire - The Ohio PlayersDisco Inferno - The TrammpsThe Flame - Cheap TrickFire on the Mountain - Marshall Tucker BandSmoke on the Water - Deep PurpleBurnin' For You - Blue Oyster CultFire and Ice - Pat BenatarBurning Down the House - Talking HeadsFire - Pointer SistersKeep the Fire Burning - REO SpeedwagonBurnin' Love - Elvis PressleyOld Flame - Alabama
