This Sunday’s WJPA Vinyl Countdown recalls the hits of December 12, 1966 when “Winchester Cathedral” was the number one song in the country.


It was also the week:



  • A soul band from Harrisburg released what many people considered a garage rock anthem – but there’s not a guitar to be heard anywhere on the single.


  • The Blues Magoos were celebrating their first top 40 hit with concerts that featured gigantic lava lamps.


  • Pittsburgh’s Contrails and Turtle Creek’s Vogues both were in the top 40.


  • Gary Lewis released his final single before joining the U.S. Army.


  • And the number one song on WJPA was by the Monkees.



You’ll hear that hit and all of the big hits of December 12, 1966 this Sunday at noon on WJPA. The Vinyl Countdown is presented by Canonsburg’s Guitar Gallery and Slovenian Savings and Loan.
