Win free tickets to the Second Chance Prom next Saturday night at the Las Cruces Convention Center. Be caller number 10 when you hear the 101 # 1 Song of the Day Replay.
The 101 number one song of the day wasn’t supposed to be a hit because it wasn’t supposed to be a single.
At the last minute it was included as a flip side and it became known as strictly a radio hit. Producer Ted Templeman remarked later that, “some little radio station started playing it in the South and it just started getting played around the country.” Looking back he thought that it stood out from other songs because of a vocal a cappella in the middle of it. With little or no promotion it arrived at number one on March 15, 1975 for the Doobie Brothers, “Black Water”
