Little Black Egg-Nightcrawlers
In 1966 I first heard Little Black Egg by The Nightcrawlers. I've always liked this song, and I knew it was a hit here. Years later I found out it wasn't a national hit. It didn't even hit the national charts until 1967 and it only reached #85. A fact I did not realize until recently that it only charted on K/MEN. I went though the KFXM & K.MEN surveys from the time it was released, and it was never listed on any KFXM surveys. On K/MEN it was listed for 11 weeks.
That was one of the nice things about having more than one top forty radio station in your town during to the 1960s, you got exposed to a few more songs.
In 1967 it never did rechart on KFXM or K/MEN. It was being played on K/MEN but did it ever get played on KFXM as an oldie?
