The following 400 songs were played a lot during our years at AHS. We have included songs from 1969-1972. We thought you would have some fun going back and remembering some hits that are special to YOU.

On Friday night, we will have a DJ at the Cocktail Party (Arrowhead Golf Club). On the Invitation/Registration form, we asked for a favorite memory or song. Here is your chance to vote on a song or two that you HAVE TO HEAR. We will make sure that the songs with the most votes are played on Friday and maybe Saturday and Sunday too!
