50 Year Flashback: July 6th, 1965

We kick off July with a chart from KLBK in Lubbock, Texas, where we find The Rolling Stones on top again with their monster hit, "Satisfaction".

Elvis Presley sits at #3 with "Crying In The Chapel" ... and he's also got the #9 hit with "Easy Question".

Herman's Hermits have two hits on the charts as well with "Wonderful World" (#5) and "I'm Henry The VIII, I Am" at #14.

Roger Miller's got a great two-sided hit at #18 with "It Happened Just That Way" / "One Dyin' And A Buryin'" ... and Chad and Jeremy and The Byrds both have hits on this week's Top 40 Chart as well as the "Good Guys Disc-Coveries" chart of up-and-coming hits ... quite a list with 24 selections as well as a "Pick Hit Of The Week".

KLBK took some title liberties with some of these listings.  Normally, we'll find abbreviations on many of the surveys that we feature ... but these guys felt a need to ADD words to some of these song titles ... as well as a couple of the artists' names.  That's why you'll find examples like "Here Comes The Night" by The Them, "I'm A Little Fool" by Dino, Desi and Billy and "You'd Better Come Back Home" by Petula Clark.
