January 9th

The biggest movers on this week's chart include "Color My World" by Petula Clark, up another ten places to #22, "98.6" by Keith, now sitting at #26 (up from #37) and "Stand By Me" by Spyder Turner (#27, up from #41).  

The Buckinghams make a HUGE leap into The Top 40 this week, climbing from #65 to #37 (that's a jump of nearly thirty places!)  The Bob Crewe Generation ("Music To Watch Girls By"), "Wild Thing" by Senator Bobby and "Bring It Up" by James Brown (#61, up from #92 the week before) all make significant moves this week as well.    

The Buffalo Springfield appear on "Where The Action Is". 

The Monkees' second album, "More Of The Monkees", is released.  In a few weeks it will displace their debut LP at the top of the national album sales chart.  Later this evening, the episode "The Case Of The Missing Monkee" airs on NBC.  "Steppin' Stone" is the featured song.
