It's back to January 16, 1967 this week on WJPA's Vinyl Countdown when:

After failing to follow up "Cherish" with a bonafide hit, the Association attempted a "Return to Paradise" with a song based on that 1940s song

Neil Diamond was competing with himself, as his "I'm A Believer" by the Monkees was at the top of the national charts and his own "You Got To Me" was just starting to get airplay

The debut single by the Fifth Dimension was a remake of what was supposed to be the Mamas and Papas first single, before it was pulled in favor of "California Dreamin."

Bill Minkin turned his impersonation of Senator Bobby Kennedy into a hit record - a unique version of "Wild  Thing" and the number one song was the title song from a movie starring Michael Caine ..

You'll hear that hit, and all of the big hits of January 16, 1967 this Sunday at noon on WJPA.

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