When they got to 1947, they paused the music to bring us one of, if not the, most famous comedy routines of all time. 1947 was the year Abbott & Costello gave the world Who's On First.
January 1951 & Patti Page makes her first appearance on the charts. The DJ tells us that this is the year publishers will release over 11,000 new books including J.D. Salingers' Catcher in the Rye.
We are now at hour #209 in the countdown. It's Nov. 1965 & the Yardbirds are on the charts with I'm a Man. And we follow that up with Fever by The McCoys.
Due to work I haven't been able to listen lately. So, I turn it on this morning & they are up to Hour # 328, June 1973. How's this for 4 songs that were on the charts at the same time.
Swamp Witch - Jim Stafford
Time To Get Down - The O'Jays
Money - Pink Floyd
Diamond Girls - Seals & Crofts
Ah the 70's, gotta love it.
I was pretty disappointed by this broadcast. I only listened to the 80's but I couldn't WAIT for it to be over! Most of the songs I had never heard before!
