This Sunday's WJPA Vinyl Countdown remembers March 25, 1963, when exactly half of the top 40 records were recorded by solo male artists, including Chubby Checker, Rick Nelson and Bobby Darin and ... Actor Alan Arkin's former group, the Rooftop Singers, were back on the chart after their breakout hit called "Walk Right In."

The Delcos were about to have a number one song with "Arabia" - a tune that never charted outside of Western Pennsylvania.

After watching TV's "Perry Como Show," 15-year-old Peggy March decided she wanted to be a singer, so she sang at her cousin's wedding.
And several weeks later, she had the number one song in the country.

You'll hear that hit, and all of the big hits of March 25, 1963 this Sunday at noon on WJPA.

The Vinyl Countdown is presented by Guitar Gallery, Monongahela Valley Hospital and Slovenian Savings and Loan.
