KFXM Top Hits of 1961
In 1961 KFXM did not publish a year end survey for the top hits of the year. I did some calculations a few years back based on the number of weeks on the KFXM charts and the position on the charts to come up with the top 113 of the year. Right now I don't remember the details on the formula I used, so please don't ask. Songs that hit #1 down to #11.
#1 for 1961 on KFXM Hello Mary Lou/Traveling Man Rick Nelson
Some songs that charted on KFXM that didn't make the top hits Heart & Soul-Jan & Dean, Baby Blue-Echoes, Barbara Ann-Regents, Spanish Harlem-Ben E. King, Unchain My Heart-Ray Charles.
A couple of national hits of 1961 that did not chart on KFXM A Little Bit Of Soap-Jarmels, Dedicated To The One I Love-Shirelles
