This was the #1 song in the country 40 years ago. That’s a pretty hip AM station, but that’s a lot of the inspiration behind this series, a time before segmentation ruled the day. To illustrate that point even further Sly & The Family Stone shared the Top 10 that week with acts as varied as: Sonny & Cher, Three Dog Night, The Chi-Lites, The Jackson 5, Melanie, Isaac Hayes, Bread, Don McLean and David Cassidy.

I’m not sure if there is that much diversity in sound these days.
