June 15th

Micky Dolenz and Peter Tork record their vocals for "Words", soon to be the flip-side of The Monkees' new single.  

Jimmy Wynn becomes the first Houston Astro to hit three home runs in a single game.  It happens at home in The Astrodome.  All three are solo shots but it's enough to give the Astros a 6-2 victory over The San Francisco Giants.

You'll see The Mauds score their first local hit on the WLS Super Summer Survey as their remake of the Sam and Dave soul classic "Hold On" debuts at #30.

The Music Explosion have a solid #2 Hit with "Little Bit O'Soul" ... but the flipside of that record also received a fair amount of airplay in other parts of the country.  (Sadly, never enough to cause the record to chart ... but several years ago Forgotten Hits Readers named "I See The Light" by The Music Explosion as their second biggest all-time favorite, forgotten b-side.)
