PHIL NEE - June 25th - ? and the Mysterians

Today from the archives we go back to a fun interview I had the chance to conduct back in the mid-90's with Rudy Martinez (Question Mark).   We talked about the fact that no one influenced him and he made several claims including the fact that he believes he was born on Mars.  The song '96 Tears' still gets requested often. 

The Mysterians put out some good records including 'I Need Somebody' and 'Can't Get Enough Of You Baby,' which should have been a monster hit. (It was much later for Smash Mouth.)  Several artists were inspired by the tracks that they recorded. 
Question Mark has been a dynamic performer through the years. When we did the interview in 1995, he was looking forward to getting out with some oldies package shows.  He was hoping to show his singing and dancing skills again.

Rudy Martinez is a strange bird!  And he has REMAINED a strange bird, even all these years since his big #1 Hit!  Your conversation with him in 1995 is FAR more normal than any from my own experiences!

Still, "96 Tears" is a garage band classic. (In fact, ? and the Mysterians placed fourth in our Top Garage Bands poll several years ago.)

Their follow-up hit, "I Need Somebody," made The National Top 20, but other great songs like "Can't Get Enough Of You Baby" and "Do Something To Me" failed to make much of an impression.

I last talked to Question Mark (Rudy Martinez legally changed his name to that!!!) after he lost most of his personal belongings in a house fire.  We were trying to help take up a collection to get the guy back up on his feet again.

I honestly don't know if he is still performing or not ... but from what I've heard, he was quite the wild man on stage!  (kk)

So we're exactly one week past its original "supposed to air" date ... and, truth be told, Chuck Buell and I are still both quite upset that his Father’s Day Gift-Buying Guide never made it to the FH Website last Friday Morning like it was supposed to … especially since we had each put a couple of hours work into the piece …


And that's why we’ve decided to run it today … 


Look at this as our post-Father’s Day Bargain Basement Close-Out Clearance Sale!!!  (Of course, none of these T-Shirts are real … but there ARE some very interesting concepts here, all courtesy of Mr. Buell)




Our Manager of the “Fantasy Forgotten Hits Gift Store for All Occasions,” and noted T-Shirt Designer, Chuck Buell, has informed us that our Special “Forgotten Hits Father’s Day Summer T-Shirt Collection” still has a few Great Choices available! (kk)

Hurry! Hurry! These T-Shirts won't last long!  ( And then the only good they'll be is to use them to wash your car or something. )

Gifting any one of these Fine Forgotten Hits Tees will have YOUR Dads “Feeling Good All Over!”

I used to work with a guy who made and sold t-shirts with Bob Dylan song lyrics on them … a risky venture to say the least when it comes to things like copyright infringement …

But, incredibly, somehow Dylan caught wind of this, saw them, and then even ordered a few for himself!!!  He also gave him full permission to carry on.  So, you just never know what could happen.  (Meaning, CB, your two dozen designs just may lead you into the next chapter of your professional career!!!)  Sometimes, truth is stranger than fiction! (kk)



(do you see what I did there???) 


Peter Asher - 60s and Beyond
A date at The Kate (theatre) to see Peter and Jeremy perform was changed up to a Peter Asher solo show after Covid hit once again. I have seen Peter's solo show, as well as Peter and Jeremy's double-up show, and it is just a no-brainer either way as to whether I wish to go. 

As with any of us, I could write an entire review about my feelings going back into concert viewing: the postponements, the financial struggles, the masks, the new safety precautions, the thrill of returning, the amazement of the positive impact on my life ... and there! I just summed it up and now I can get to the good stuff.

I am surrounded by a seasoned audience: Mark and Carol Lapidos, Charles Rosenay, Caswell Cooke and Ken (Michaels) and JoAnn Kassoff. This proves my point that Peter Asher is a class act. So many people return. This may change my review however, as I like to hear the reactions of newbies at each show. Hmmmm ... midway through the first act, I DO hear newbie reactions. The "What?," "OHHH," "Haha, that's good," and "I never heard that before" are coming through. So again, I am reminded that no matter where a performance occurs, there is always someone who is new to the show. Just like my classroom. Always someone who is new to what you have to offer. PLUS, it takes over 60 times for humans to hear something before it is truly embedded in their memories. I wish I had known that growing up. "MOM, I NEED TO PLAY THIS RECORD AT LEAST 60 TIMES BEFORE I TRULY KNOW IT! Honest!"

A clip from the 1953 production of 'Isn't Life Wonderful" starts the show with a 9-year-old Peter Asher beckoning us to follow him. In this case into his world growing up, continuing through a magical life in theatre, music and stage presentation. Jeffrey Alan Ross, as always, joins Peter adding dialogue and video to enhance the retelling of stories and the performance of the musical harmonies I just love. I want you to go see the show, so I will only give you a fly-over of what we had the pleasure to experience.

I have been much impressed with the video tributes that Paul McCartney and Micky Dolenz have incorporated into their shows. Peter Asher has been doing that with/for Gordon Waller for 10 years or so. I had forgotten just how striking (ok some would use the word "hot") Gordon was and adding his deep baritone to Peter's harmonies again validates my love of their time together.

Peter talks about the song writers who played a winning role in their success. People like Carole King, Buddy Holly, Del Shannon and that other one ... what was his name? ... oh yeah! Paul McCartney! 
The stories about John Lennon and Paul McCartney dip into their brilliance in writing songs and Peter can relate first-hand how and when several were composed. The TV shows that Peter and Gordon appeared on and the concerts they performed are exposed in still shots and video. Did you know Peter and Gordon performed on the same bill as The Rolling Stones? But neither one was the headliner? The headliner was (drum roll please) FREDDIE AND THE DREAMERS! I do believe that things changed rather quickly after that. If you can find a viewing of Peter and Gordon on The Red Skelton Show doing 'In The Summertime' (You Don't Want My Love), WATCH IT! The most amazing dance performance of English gentlemen doing southern US hay dancing. Sorry Peter, I can't resist. The clip is to die for.

Jeffrey Alan Ross, from New Haven, CT (I got it in Jeff) is also from one of the incarnations of Badfinger, which is tied into Apple Recording, which is tied into Peter Asher, who is tied in to The Beatles and is Peter's Musical Director and because of all the connections I just stated was asked to perform Peter's favorite Badfinger song, 'Day After Day.'  This, along with all the other songs performed here live, was wonderful, lyrical, melodic. 
I loved hearing each and every song. 
Oh, so here is the set list:

500 Miles - Peter with Gordon on video
Crying In The Rain - Peter Asher and Jeff Ross
Paul McCartney doing original reel to reel of 'World Without Love'
Nobody I Know - Peter Asher and Jeff Ross
I Go To Pieces - Peter Asher and Jeff Ross
I Don't Want To See You Again - Peter and Gordon
Lady Godiva - Peter, Jeff and audience
True Love Ways - Peter with Gordon on video
As Tears Go By - Peter and Jeff
Day After Day - Jeffrey Alan Ross
World Without Love - Peter, Jeff and audience

This show was 2 1/2 hours long so there is SO much more I could tell you, but as I said ... it will mean so much more if you see it for yourself. The times from the 1950's to the present are all represented in a manner that is relatable to each of us.

I waited a day to write this as I wanted to hear Peter's radio show on Tuesday afternoon now that the school year has a break. His show 'From Me To You' is weekly on SiriusXm radio.  Two hours after that one, there was a premier performance of his new quarterly show. 'Tell Me Why,' in which he will be doing interviews. This first show was an interview with Olivia Harrison on her newly published book of poems to George. I have always enjoyed 'From Me To You' and the interview with Olivia on 'Tell Me Why' was very well done. Check out the radio shows and don't miss his theatre performance if it comes near you.

Jeremy, I missed you and I hope you are feeling better. See you next time.

Peter Asher celebrated a birthday this week (#78) ... 
And Best Classic Bands reran this vintage interview with him, conducted by Jeff Tamarkin ...
Al Jardine (minus Carnie and Wendy) returns to Chicago's City Winery on August 29th, evidently right at the end of the Brian Wilson tour.
Our most recent experience with Al's concert at The Des Plaines Theatre was a rather sad one ...
But the last time I saw him at The City Winery, it was quite an enjoyable show ...
A new Stones documentary to be unveiled on Epix TV August 7th.
Clark Besch
Yes ...
This is the same UK Rolling Stones Documentary that we told you about a while back.  At the time, no deal had been made yet for a US airing (although we always knew it would happen eventually.)  It will now have its official US premier on the Epix Channel on August 7th.  
Split into four one hour episodes, each hour will be spent spotlighting a solo Stone (Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ron Wood.)  The films will show exclusive home movies taken by each of the band members and share unique perspective from each of them on what being a Rolling Stone is all about.  (In fact, the title of the program is "My Life As A Rolling Stone!")  Definitely worth checking out! (And SO glad that they were able to get all of this on record before Charlie left us.)  kk
Good interview here with Howard Kaylan, founding member of The Turtles, who celebrated his 75th birthday earlier this week ...
OMG.  I just checked the Global Charts.  "Running Up That Hill" is the #1 song in the whole world!  Maybe this will start trend.
Ed #1
The oldies seem to be all around us again.  I heard a commercial featuring "One Thing Leads To Another" several times the other night ... definitely sounded like The Fixx until the vocal came in!  (lol)  But still, what a GREAT track ... and certainly one of my favorites from the '80's.  (kk) 
Soulful Blues Legend JUNIOR WELLS Shines On New Compilation Of Vintage Singles!

Junior Wells is a towering figure among blues legends, the kind of multi-talented artist that would signal the direction of modern soul and R&B for generations to come. Wells was a thrilling performer, a mesmerizing harmonica player, and a captivating vocalist who blended numerous styles of soul, gospel and even early rock as can be heard on the very first sides that Wells cut in the mid-‘50s including “Cut That Out,” “Lawdy! Lawdy!” and “Tomorrow Night.”

These singles as well as Wells’ incredible run of late-‘50s and ‘60s singles, some of which still remain his most identifiable songs including "Hoodoo Man," "Lovey Dovey Lovey One," "Messin' With The Kid" and more, are being collected on a fantastic new compilation entitled Blues Legend. Set for release on July 8th, this collection will be available as either a 2CD package or a gorgeous 2LP vinyl set. Both come packaged with detailed personnel listing and extensive liner notes written by music critic and historian Dave Thompson. The audio has been digitally remastered to give these classic tracks the highest fidelity sound possible.

Check out the track “Cut That Out” along with a rousing video that has been created in anticipation of the release.

Loved CB's assessment of summer tunes through the years. Later on in life, one might consider him to be IN THE SUMMER OF HIS YEARS (1963-1964).

Thursday This And That

Here is an incredible tour of Joel Whitburn’s vault from 2005 …

Keep in mind that he continued to add to this collection EVERY WEEK thereafter based on each week’s new Billboard Charts!

(That's nearly a thousand more weeks!!!)


Hi Kent,
Wow! I am truly humbled by all of the outpouring of love and support from not only the Forgotten Hits readers, but from all of our customers and chart fans around the world. I've literally been either online or on the phone this past week talking with fellow "chart nerds" (a tag that I wear with pride), sharing stories about Joel and our little company. As much as I've enjoyed it, I really need to get back to working on The Gavin Report project!
A huge "thank you" to all you've done over the years to help spread the gospel. Joel always asked me "did you see what Kent wrote about us today?" He never lost his joy or enthusiasm for music and charts. In fact, he was at his desk the day before he died. He went out doing what he loved to do. May we all be so lucky!
PS: I know you're a stickler for the facts. Joel's wife Fran was paralyzed in a parasailing accident, not an automobile accident.

As soon as I read your email I remembered that!!!  I was always so amazed that even well into their 70’s, Joel and Fran lived live to the fullest, doing what they most enjoyed doing.  I know one of his biggest fears after her accident was that he was going to lose her … I don’t think he ever expected that he’d be the first to go.  So sad.

You must have SO many memories to share, Paul, of working with Joel over the past 30+ years … and I hope you’ll continue to share those with our readers … and keep us up to date on all new chart info that you may be working on.  Consider me a life-long fan.  (kk)


Nice collection of Joel Whitburn comments you're receiving. And interesting as you wrote,

>>>I’ve received more Joel Whitburn appreciative responses than for any other rock star to pass during the time I’ve done Forgotten Hits. His work touched EVERYONE  (kk)

I believe that to be so true.  As Ral Donner once sang in his Top 5 Forgotten Hit in the Summer of 1961, "You don't know what you've got until you lose it!" ( I know the facts I just mentioned about Donner and his Song are accurate because I got them from my Joel Whitburn Book, Top Pop Singles 17th Edition, Vol. 1: 1955-1989! )

(aka CB … who we hereby dub Chart Boy!!!)

My Favorites –

"DAILY #1 HITS" (1940 - 1992)



Kent - I Don't Know If It's Possible To Do A Countdown Of Joel Whitburn Books … Most Sales #1 and Least Sales, Last Place. I Think He'd Like That. 


Not sure where you’d get those stats (unless Record Research would be willing to share them with us!)  It’s a tough call, too, because Top Pop Singles, for example, has gone through something like 17 revisions since the first book came out in 1969 … so while it’s the company’s flagship publication and, since it’s been around the longest, would have the greatest accumulative sales, other books (like the Comparison Chart Book in particular) became immediate best sellers, too.

The weekly charts by decade for Billboard, Cash Box and Record World are priceless editions.  (I remember going to The Chicago Public Library and copying many of these charts from microfilm … probably one of the worst headaches I’ve ever had after flipping through all those pages through the viewing lenses!)  I just had to have them all … so when Joel began publishing these, in pristine condition, I finally pitched my barely legible copies and have referred to his ever since.

Over the years, I have purchased HUNDREDS of copies of his books and, as I’ve said, there has not been a single day, during these past 50+ years, that I have not referred to at least one of them.  It is the most complete, documented history of the charts possible, an invaluable tool at your fingertips whenever you need it.

Over the years, I have added chart history books for our two big Chicago AM Powerhouse Stations, WLS and WCFL, the CHUM Chart Book from Canada, the complete history of British Pop Singles … and special new publications put together by fans (like the Milwaukee Chart book that FH Reader Ken Freck put together a few years ago) and have been on the fence for a complete collection of Australian Chart Hits for years (a VERY expensive collection that only has incidental interest to me … yet I still feel like I can’t live without it!  Lol)

For me, it has always been impossible to pass by a countdown show, no matter what the subject matter or how it was assembled.  (That’s why you’ve seen so many Readers Polls here in Forgotten Hits over the years!)  So finding Joel’s books (and the very fact that they even existed) has been a God-send for me.

My most-used references have to be the Billboard Chart Hits and the Cash Box Chart Hits, followed by the Record World and now Radio and Records editions which, until the Chart Comparison Book came out, meant I would often have to look up chart information in three or four places.  Now (through early 1982 anyway!) I can reference just this one book – along with my own notations as to how well these songs did on our local charts, Canadian Charts and British Charts.  Joel’s efforts have helped to make Forgotten Hits a much more complete and authoritative source of this information … and I am very thankful for this.  (kk)

As a fellow Whitburn-ian devotee since my youngest days, I hereby proclaim one Joel Whitburn as a first ballot Rock & Roll Hall Of Famer.
For he has accomplished WAAAAAY more for rock & roll music legacy than many of the inductees!

Mike Markesich

I totally agree … and that was one of my very first thoughts as well when I first heard of his passing.

Joel was a voting member for years … and I think at one time part of the nominating committee … but he told me that after seeing the way the nominees were being selected, he stepped down from that post and only remained a voting member.  (Perhaps more commentary on the way things were being done under Jann Wenner’s reign as President ... not that the fans didn’t already know this!)  kk


>>>There weren’t many, but we helped correct a few Record Research errors over the years.  One that’s STILL published wrong is the fact that Brian Wilson did NOT write The New Colony Six song “People And Me.”  That song was written by BOB Wilson, who was a member of the band at the time.  I swore Joel fixed this error when we first pointed it out … but then somehow it reverted back to the Brian Wilson credit … which simply is not true.  (I think it may have been right for one edition only but I don’t have them all handy enough to go digging!)  Paul, maybe you can add this to your list of things to be updated for the next edition.  If I remember correctly, David Lewis told us a few years ago that Bob Wilson was still playing gigs around Nashville at the time.)

It's interesting that it was corrected and somehow reverted to the incorrect info. 

Bob Wilson was indeed playing with his band "Timeline" regularly until just prior to Covid arriving in 2020. During breaks, Bob and I talked several times about NC6 and the overall Chicago music scene of the sixties and seventies. We fans were unaware that Bob was dealing with some serious health problems during the last couple of years he was performing. He's still with us now but isn't doing any gigs at present. We all wish Bob the best in hopes he'll get past these hurdles and be back up on stage for some superb rock and roll. As retired principal at Nashville School Of The Arts, Bob is one of the most beloved high-school principals to pass through this town. My wife met one of Bob's former students recently, who is also now working in education, and this lady echoed other things we've heard about Bob being so supportive of musicians and other students of the arts.

David Lewis


>>>I had always hoped that once Joel got the Comparison Chart Book off the ground, he might consider publishing our Super Charts as well (kk)
Did you folks ever consider bypassing the trades altogether and doing super charts based on the over 100,000 surveys contained in the awesome Airheads Radio Survey Archive?  This would also bypass the trades' rule that a song was not eligible unless it was released as a single, as many of these surveys had no such restrictions.  

I looked up a few of your Top 3333 high-charters that did not make the Hot 100.  It gives an idea of what the charts might have looked like had this rule not restricted them.

The most striking example of many was Stairway To Heaven  Not counting its 1976 live remake, it was #1 on 10 charts, beginning January 16, 1972.  It appeared on 148 surveys.

At first, I was surprised not to find "Here Comes The Sun" listed, but then I investigated further.  It turns out that 19 charts had the entire Abbey Road album listed on their singles chart ... four of them at #1 beginning on November 12, 1969.  And I checked ... they were all singles charts.  Abbey Road beat out "Wedding Bell Blues" for #1.

This was also the case for other Beatles albums, and for those of some other classic rock artists, like the Rolling Stones, the Mamas & Papas and Jimi Hendrix.  This is probably accurate, because top forty radio seemed to have every song on these albums in rotation whether they were released as singles or not.

But wait, it gets better.

Beginning on February 22, 1964, 25 singles surveys listed "All Beatles Records" or some variation of that on their chart, NINETEEN AT NUMBER ONE.

Top that, Drake!

Ed #1


During the most creative time in music, the weekly surveys and charts weren’t allowed to list album tracks … or listener requests.  (We talked recently about how The Monkees’ 1967 version of “Valleri,” taped of the tv show, would win Most Requested Song every single night for weeks on end … and yet you couldn’t buy it … in ANY configuration … at the time.  (At least you could shell out your eight bucks and get the new Led Zeppelin album and listen to “Stairway To Heaven”!!!)

And yet now, here we are, some 50-something years later, and EVERY song from EVERY album is suddenly eligible to rank on the charts … and in FAR too many cases, every track on any given LP DOES, in fact, hit the charts, albeit most only for a week or two.

Still it completely distorts the history of the charts that Billboard continuously (and erroneously) compares as if all things were equal … which they’re not … not even close!

You mention the entire “Abbey Road” charting … that was the big thing with “Sgt. Pepper” when it first came out … I lost track of how many surveys I saw while research our 1967 series that showed the entire LP at #1 … and most of the tracks were played that way, too!  (Not all, mind you … which makes that kind of ranking somewhat deceiving … but certainly the “Sgt. Pepper” / “With A Little Help From My Friends” medley, “Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds, “When I’m 64” and “A Day In The Life” were played every bit as often as the most popular singles in the land.

As it is, The Beatles placed 34 “sides” in The National Top 100 during 1964 alone … together, they accounted for 285 accumulated weeks charted … or nearly 5 ½ years worth of chart action in one year’s time.

We’ll never see anything else quite like it … other than somebody like Drake, of course.  Or maybe the Cast of “Glee!”  (kk)


Several of Brian Wilson’s musical friends got together to wish him a Happy 80th Birthday this past Monday … 



And this from Spud (courtesy of Howie Edelson) …

80 Things We Love About Brian Wilson

Randy Bachman and Burton Cummings have finally rescheduled some of their cancelled tour dates.  As of right now, all appearances are confined to Canada … but fans here in The States are hopeful that they’ll make their way down across the border at some point in time as well.


Cancelled due to Covid (and then Canada-imposed traveling conditions), all shows (other than a special one night concert held in Winnipeg in August of 2021, celebrating Manitoba Unite 150) were ultimately cancelled.  (We had second row seats for their appearance here in Chicago … I doubt that THAT’LL happen again!!!  lol)


Here’s the list of confirmed Canadian dates:

July 17th – Peterborough, ON – Peterborough Memorial Centre
July 19th – Toronto, ON – Budweiser Stage
July 20th – London, ON – Budweiser Gardens
July 22nd – Kemptville, ON – Kemptville Live Music Festival
July 23rd – St. Catharines, ON – Meridian Centre
August 5th – Grand Forks, BC – Canada Rock Fest
September 3rd – Vancouver, BC – PNE Amphitheatre


I do have to say that I am a bit more excited an optimistic about the new Baz Luhrmann "Elvis" film coming out this weekend after watching the special 20/20 profile Tuesday Night.  (I'm sure it's available On Demand should you have missed it.)


By all accounts and appearances, they seem to have done The King Of Rock And Roll right ... and in some of the clips shown, young actor Austin Butler truly BECOMES Elvis on screen ... enough so to win over Priscilla and Lisa Marie Presley.  (I'm sure we'll go check it out this weekend ... been waiting long enough for this one to come out!)

Lots of trailers and clips on YouTube ... but check out the 20/20 special if you've got an hour to kill ... I think it'll win you over, too!  (kk)

LA Theater: Frankie Valli in the House for Granddaughter's Premiere in

"Pretty Woman" Musical


Hope your First Day of Summer today is as Summertime as it can be!

(I know your days have been feeling long for you lately ... 
But for me, today was a LOOONG Day!  
Oh.  Wait.
"Today was the first official day of Summer and the longest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere."
Nevermind . . .



Thank you, Annette!

Now admittedly, the attached Top Ten Song from 1966 is one of my many favorite “Summertime” Songs because he sings “Chuck-chuck Chuck-chucka-Chuck-chuck!” right off the top!


So, come Rock On with me, because it is “Summertime, Summertime, Sum-Sum-Summertime” ( 1958 ) and “In the Summertime” ( 1970 ) I don’t have time for the “Summertime Blues” ( 1958 )!


 I just want some “Hot Fun in the Summertime” ( 1969 ) with maybe just a gentle “Summer Breeze” (1972 ) to cool down a hot town’s “Summer in the City” ( 1966 ).


And that’s my “Summer Song” ( 1964 ) and my “Theme from a Summer Place” ( 1960 ) where I can enjoy a few “Summer Nights” ( 1978 ) with just a slight chance of “Summer Rain” ( 1968) all before too quickly “Summer’s Gone” ( 1960 )!


For now tho, I’m off to hang out with my “Boys of Summer” ( 1985 )!


CB ( which stands for “Chuck-chuck Chuck-chucka-Chuck-chuck Boy!” )



>>>We’ve got a brand New DADDY ISSUES Sweet 16 (kk)

Don't forget the song, Dad Gave My Dog Away, by T. Texas Tyler. It's one of about 35 Dad songs I posted on my Facebook page on Friday.


Nope, we didn’t do that one!  (lol)   

But we probably did come up with several dozen more that we could have used had we chose to go beyond our 16 song limit!  (Once you add in Dad, Daddy, Papa, Father, Pops … as in “Pops, We Love You,” which almost made the cut … as did “I’m Bugged At My Old Man,” it would have been pretty easy to put together a two hour Father’s Day Radio Special!  (kk)   


When I started to read Wednesday's FH, the first thing that came to my mind was a record that did fairly well here in the OKC area back in 1969. 
It was called OKLAHOMA CITY TIMES and was recorded by singer Hamilton CAMP.  It was written by songwriter Paul Hampton. 
The nightly newspaper is no longer being published. 
At the time the record came out, the record got extensive air play on radio station WKY. Nothing unusual about that in that the Oklahoma Publishing Company also owned radio station WKY.
When I saw the bear taking off with campfire provisions, I thought of YOGI by the Ivy Three in 1960.
That last sign you posted, it started out by saying "Don't Come Knockin'." That reminded me of Fats Domino.
Kent, there is one thing I like about FH. No matter what the subject matter is about, most of the time it reminds me of a record I haven't heard in many, many years. Of course I'm talking about "On the Radio" as Donna Summer would have said, One more thing. The flip of Camp's record was called HONEY WINE, which could have been used a few days ago on your songs about wine. Of course no one would know or remember this song, cause it was a "B" side. I never played it.
Beginning this Friday night in the 7:00 hour, Me-TV-FM will kick off a “Lost and Found Weekend — The ‘70s,” a weekend devoted to the most popular songs of the ‘70s decade that have been virtually forgotten by radio stations today. Every station but MeTVFM, of course.  

I love the List Mike Wolstein contributed to Forgotten Hits the other day!


Unbelievably True and Eye-rollingly Sad.
