Issue #359 - Charlie Van Dyke makes his last appearance on the survey until August 1973. He went to WLS in Chicago and returned to KHJ to do morning drive when Robert W. Morgan departed.
Seven records debut this week. Highly unusual.The oddest is "Taxi." I love that record, but I was always surprised that KHJ played it. It's long, and KHJ did NOT edit it as I recall, not even cutting the falsetto portion in the middle.Of course, in the schoolyard, we all loved "Troglodyde." Couldn't get enough of "one of the Butt sisters."
Steve. I'll make it simple. At this time in 1972 Drake wanted his 18-34's back. For this he eschewed the normal teenybopper top 40 and played a hipper list. In other words he wasn't programming to your school yard.
I think with Joe Tex's "I Gotcha", this was the first time that a song dropped to the #30 position since "Jumpin' Jack Flash" on 7/24/1968 ?
