Vinyl Countdown

Terry’s Memorial Day 2021 Countdown


This Sunday’s WJPA Vinyl Countdown replays the music of June 22, 1970 when the Beatles had their final top five hit, The Jackson Five scored their third consecutive No. 1 song and Three Dog Night released what became the biggest single of their career.

It was also the week:

  • Crosby, Stills Nash & Young scored with a quickly-composed song about the events at Kent State University.

  • Ronnie Dyson, who first achieved fame as a cast member of “Hair” had his first pop hit with a song from another Broadway show called “Salvation.”

  • A band that named itself after a Captain Kangaroo cartoon character had a top five hit on WJPA.

  • And Edwin Starr took an album cut from a Temptations album and turned it into a milllion-selling single.

You’ll hear that hit and all of the big hits of June 22, 1970 this Sunday at noon on WJPA. The Vinyl countdown is presented by Canonsburg’s Guitar Gallery and Slovenian Savings and Loan.
