Listen for the 101 # 1 Song of the Day Replay to win 2 tickets to the Second Chance Prom – with music by Frankie from the Bronx and the Oldies But Goodies Band– Saturday March 23rd from 6-9 at the LC Convention Center.

 

The 101 number one song of the day which became RCA’s fastest selling single of all time, had a distinctive article of clothing in the title but it was about much more than a piece of cloth.

The singer wrote the song while recuperating from an injury suffered in Vietnam.  He was a native New Mexican who served in the Air Force for four years.  After his discharge, he learned to play the guitar and formed a band which played in bars around the state but he didn’t enjoy much success.  So he went back into the military – this time the Army where he joined an elite group which inspired the song that was number one in America on March 11, 1966 – Staff Sargent Barry Sadler (Ballad of the Green Beret)
