101 # 1 Song of the Day – 8-22-13

Listen for the replay between 10 and 7 today to win a pair of Harvest Wine Festival tickets.

The 101 # 1 Song of the Day was the second number one for a NYC group headed by a couple of guys who actually had a lot more success producing records for other people.

Nile Rodgers and Bernard Edwards were extremely success in producing major hits for Sister Sledge, Diana Ross, David Bowie, Madonna, Duran Duran, Debbie Harry and many others to the point that it created a strain on their time and resources.  Edwards once said that when they were on stage doing their own stuff, they’d often be thinking of the projects they were developing with other big stars of the day.  Something had to give and by August 22, 1979 when today’s featured single was at number one it would prove to be their 5th and final chart entry as performers with their own group which they called “Chic.”  The song: Good Times.
