50 Year Flashback: March 30th, 1965

Here's our first Canadian Chart from 1965 ... and this one was just too good to pass up.

It's CHUM's Annual April Fool's Day Chart with some GREAT title and artist parodies throughout ...

"Dairy 'Cross The Jersey" by Gerry and the Milkmen!!!

"Game Of Love" by The Tennis Players!!!

"I'm Telling You Now" by The Finks!!!

"That'll Be The Day" by Doris and Dennis!!!

These charts were always a hoot ... but I think we can still squeeze out a couple of legitimate hits here if we try hard enough.

"The Birds And The Shes" by James Bond is at #2 ... naturally that's the Jewel Akens hit ... we haven't featured that one yet.

We'll also sneak in The Kinks' "Tired Of Waiting For You" (shown here as The Grey Cup), Wayne Fontana and the Mindbenders' "Game Of Love" and Canada's own Guess Who with "Shakin' All Over"!
