50 Year Flashback - August 24th, 1965

Here are The Kingsmen, on top AGAIN in 1965 with their 1963 Chart-Topper "Louie Louie", holding down the #1 Position on this week's KOMA Chart this time in Oklahoma!

This puts them ahead of some of the hottest artists of the day, including The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Sonny and Cher, The Beach Boys, Bob Dylan and The Righteous Brothers!

And check out pre-Monkees David Jones' #7 hit "What Are We Going To Do", up 13 places from #20 the week before!

Brand new on the chart are "Eve Of Destruction" by Barry McGuire, "The In-Crowd" by Ramsey Lewis and "The Summer Wind" by Wayne Newton.  KOMA Klimbers making their mark this week include "Catch Us If You Can" by The Dave Clark Five (one of those GREAT Songs of Summer, circa 1965) and "Agent Double-O-Soul" by Edwin Starr.
