Where Were You October 26, 1972?-- Part 2

Continuing with the songs being played on Chicago's WLS and WCFL, both AM stations.

HONKY CAT-- ELTON JOHN-- just falling off the charts
I'LL BE AROUND-- SPINNERS-- some of the spectacular Philadelphia Soul
THUNDER AND LIGHTNING-- CHI COLTRANE

GARDEN PARTY-- RICK NELSON & THE STONE CANYON BAND--Little Ricky Nelson also got started back in the 50s. James Brown was still recording as well and had started back in the 50s.
CITY OF NEW ORLEANS-- ARLO GUTHRIE
GO ALL THE WAY-- RASPBERRIES

YOU'RE STILL A YOUNG MAN-- TOWER OF POWER-- from Oakland Bay
BURNIN' LOVE--ELVIS PRESLEY-- the third 50s artist still in the charts in 1972-- all still going strong.
BEAUTIFUL SUNDAY-- DANIEL BOONE-- The Number One Song from this date, 36 years ago. English singer-songwriter who swore he was a direct descendant of Daniel Boone. A one-hit wonder.

A great Stroud quote from the show: "Isn't it amazing how much great music was out at one time. Every time I do a Time Warp, it always astounds me that one particular date in time can give you so much great music. It was a feeding frenzy. Everybody creatively feeding off everybody else back in the era."

Great Memories in These Time Warps. Thanks, Bob. --RoadDog
