Wayne Newton's DREAMS OF THE
EVERYDAY HOUSEWIFE is charting
high on both stations.
Bug Glen Campbell's version is
nowhere to be found. I think
they were out at the same
time. I remember hearing it
but I guess not at these stations.
I liked both versions and still
do.
Who played Campbell's version.

Nilson's EVERYBODY'S TALKING
making it's debut? I don't ever
remember hearing in Summer of
68. Not played much, I guess.
It didn't even make the Billboard
100 that year.
But it sure was big hit one year
later. Amazing.

Same thing happened to another
RCA record: Youngbloods' GET
TOGETHER. Not much ado in 67 but
what a hit in 69.

We played Glen Campbell's version on KFXM. Jonny Bruce

If KFXM played the Campbell version
also, it didn't list it on
the charts. I see NEWTON but
Campbell is nowhere.
Musta been an "extra" somewhere
on the non-published survey.

The control room had a list of
songs that went beyond the published
list.

I also remember hearing Glen Campbell's version, and in 1968. Besides KFXM and KMEN I was able to pick up KCBQ (San Diego) in the daytime. Maybe that's where I heard it. Any KCBQ experts? Did it chart on KCBQ?
