This Sunday on WJPA's VInyl Countdown, it's back to February 17, 1969 when six degrees of separation - or less - connected many artists in the top 40. Tommy Roe, who had the hottest song that week, was childhood friends with Joe South, who was also in the top 20. Glen Campbell, a musician on the new Grass Roots single, also had his own new song debuting that week - Galveston - which was written by Jimmy Webb, who also wrote “The Worst That Could Happen,” which was still in the top 40. And Kasenetz-Katz, who were in the top five with the 1910 Fruitgum Company, had the highest debut of the week with yet another studio concocted group - Crazy Elephant.

You'll hear those hits, and all of the big songs of February 17, 1969 this Sunday at noon on WJPA.

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