It came from the pages of Hit Parader
I have in front of me a copy of the May, 1985 issue of Hit Parader. Judas Priest and Iron Maiden are on the cover, but if you turn it over there is a rather odd ad on the back cover. It tries to make you think that it is another cover of Hit Parader, but really it's just an ad from RCA records. They try to plug all of their hard rock/metal bands such as Grim Reaper, Wrathchild, Shy, White Wolf and Boss. Oh, and the biggest name of all gets the picture on the ad and that band is Autograph. Right now if you are around 30 or under then you are saying who? However if you were of a certain age in late 84-early 85 then you remember these guys as a one hit wonder and that hit was "Turn up the radio". It got a lot of airplay and it was on Autograph's debut "Sign in please". The album is overall just okay and I bought it on cd a few years back for a dollar figuring it was worth that. Unfortunately for Autograph they never had another hit. Their second album the 1985 release "That's the stuff"got mainly poor reviews. In 1987 they returned with "Loud and clear" which I remember as being their best album, but it didn't catch on. I think they drifted away after that although they did release a rarities album in the 90's. Yet for a short period of time there a lot of people knew who Autograph were due to that one song and that's more than a lot of bands from that era can say.
