Posted in 101 #1 Song of The Day

Listen for the replay to win 4 tickets to Western Playland.


The 101 number one song of the day was sung by a man born Charles Hatcher whose first paycheck was a Sealy Posturpedic mattress – but he had to split it five ways.

He was performing as part of quintet called the Future Tones.  They entered a local talent contest on a TV show and won.  The first prize was the mattress.  Eventually he moved out on his own and onto Cleveland where he was signed to a contract by Ric Tic Records which was bought by Motown.  He recorded a song written by Norman Whitfield and Barrett Strong which went to number one on August 29, 1970 and although Vietnam itself was never mentioned – the time was right for the man since renamed – Edwin Starr (War)
