WSAI RADIO 1360 SURVEY FOR CINCINNATI WEEK OF MAY 23, 1970
1. The Wonder Of You - Elvis Presley--I bought the 45, 1 of the the most overproduced records in history but my Mom loved it! 2. Which Way You Goin' Billy - The Poppy Family-Bought it! 3. Gimme Dat Ding - The Pipkins-Creeped me out! I was reading the other day that this was the same folks who did the music for THE GROOVY GOOLIES. 4. The Long And Winding Road - The Beatles-1st Beatles record. 5. Reflections Of My Life - The Marmalade-A huge group in England but this was pretty much their only US hit, an over-orchestrated ode to depression. One of my favorites as I became an angst teenager. 6. My Baby Loves Lovin' - White Plains-I had never heard of sex so it never occurred to me this was a sex song! 7. Ride Captain Ride - Blues Image-Loved it! 8. Everything Is Beautiful - Ray Stevens-Bought the 45 at JC Penny. 79 cents! Te most I'd ever paid for a single to that point. 9. Get Ready - Rare Earth--Not a favorite then but always nostalgic to hear nowadays. 10. Hitchin' A Ride - Vanity Fare-kinda creeped me out. 11. Band Of Gold - Freda Payne-Loved it! Got to see her live about 8 years later. 12. Run Through The Jungle/Up Around The Bend - Creedence Clearwater Revival-Liked these so much I bought the album! 13. It's All In The Game - Four Tops-A favorite at the time. 14. Brother Rapp - James Brown--Don't recall this one at all. 15. Cinnamon Girl - Gentrys Loved this. My first favorite Neil Young song about a year or two before I knew who Neil Young even was! 16. Maybe I'm Amazed - Paul McCartney-Bought the album! 17. The Letter - Joe Cocker-Liked it but liked the original better once I dissevered it. 18. Love On A Two Way Street - The Moments-Liked it. 20. Spirit In The Dark - Aretha Franklin-No memory of this. 21. Come Saturday Morning - The Sandpipers-Loved the song and the movie it came from--Bought the 45. 22. Question - The Moody Blues-AM radio usually only played the short version of this but it was enough to make the Moody Blues all-time favorites. Eventually I got everything they ever did and saw them twice in concert. 23. Soolaimon - Neil Diamond-Loved this. My older cousin had given me a single of "Girl. You'll Be a Woman Soon" which I didn't like. I was oblivious to the fact that he had much BETTER stuff. 24. Viva Tirado - El Chicano-If I ever heard this it made zero impression. 25. Reach Out And Touch - Diana Ross-I had seen her on TV. Loved this song 26. Daughter Of Darkness - Tom Jones-Tom was also a TV favorite and this became a favorite song of his for me. 27. Let It Be - The Beatles-I went back the following week and bought this one! 28. United We Stand - The Brotherhood Of Man-Liked it! 29. Dangling On A String - Chairmen Of The Board-I sorta kinda remember it...in a way. 30. Mama Told Me - Three Dog Night-Such a longtime favorite that I posted a clip of them singing it on Facebook just yesterday! PIC HIT Hey Mr. Sun - Bobby Sherman-I had gotten into Bobby's records because my 6th grade girlfriend was into them so I bought this and all his records until she moved away. MOST REQUESTED SONG Which Way You Goin' Billy - The Poppy Family--Susan Jacks was the lead singer on this dirge of a song...which I did buy. Her brother Terry Jacks, also in the group, went on to solo fame with his version of the depressing song "Seasons in the Sun."
