KFXM Tiger Mag Sept 15, 1967
Hey, it's Dean Martin, with Little Old Wine Drinker, Me cuttrntly on the charts. With an article inside. Click on it to enlarge it. But it's dropping down the charts. There is a mention of a Johnny Bee filing in for Charlie Walters while on vacation. Was that you Jonny Bruce? Good picture of Sherman Mason in the news room.
In Sept 1967 The Monkees were still popular enough that the station compiled a list of favorite Monkees songs. Words was #1. Oldies stations still play 4, 8, and 18. Daydream Believer hasn't been released yet. I like 17, 19, 20, 21, 25 and 29, which 19 is the same as 29.
Sonething I had never realized before, according to the articles on the following page on August 27th Brian Jones died, and Bian Epstein was found dead on the same day. Haven't checked any other place for the information. Is that correct? #1 again The Letter-Box Tops
#34 Debut People Are Strange-The Doors/ This song was the basis of two slide show presentations I did first in high school and also in college. I like the song.
To Sir With Love-Lulu making it's first time appearance.
OK, here's a guilty pleasure of mine. Personal pick The Last Waltz-Englebert Humperdink. I don't know why, it just that I really like the song! If it came on the radio today, I wouldn't change the station. I guess I'll have to find it and post it on my other blog.
