On this day, February the 10th, 42 years ago, VAN HALEN released their debut album; the band's freshman effort, if you will.
In 1978, I was a dorky 15 year old high school sophomore, without a Valentine.
But I did have have the cassette of VAN HALEN'S first album, and it was love at first sight.
Hence VH 1 is tonight's "Vinyl @ Nineyl" on The Fox.
