101 #1 Song of the Day 3-28-12


The members of America were all children of American parents serving in England. They formed their group in London and developed a large fan base by performing in clubs and opening for acts like Pink Floyd. When they got a record contract they headed to the states to tour with the Everly Brothers. They were glad to head back home even though they had only briefly lived in the States. “A Horse With No Name” is rooted in homesickness and was number one on this day in 1972. When you hear it again be caller #10 to win a $30 gift certificate for dinner at Texas Roadhouse!
