This Sunday’s WJPA Vinyl Countdown rewinds the music to November 6, 1967 when the group that inspired The Partridge Family TV series had its first number one song.
Also that week:
A group whose early concerts featured a six-foot-high can of Crisco as one of its props was back on the charts – cementing its standing as the top American rock act of the year.
Gladys Knight & the Pips had their first top 20 hit since 1961 with a song that was first recorded by the Miracles, but never released as a single.
Pittsburgh’s Racket Squard – the former Fenways – were high on the WJPA charts with a song called Hung Up.
And one of WJPA’s highest debuts of the week was by Cher – singing about divorce from a man’s point of view.
You’ll hear that hit and all of the hits from November 6, 1967 this Sunday at noon on WJPA.
Vinyl Countdown is sponsored by Canonsburg’s Guitar Gallery, and Amber Bennett Berkshire-Hathaway Home Services.
