The 101 number one song of the day was recorded by a group so new -it didn’t have a name.  So one of the members suggested they have a contest. 

They were working at a Memphis studio recording the song you’re about to hear.  If it was going to be released, they had to call themselves something so during a break, according to songwriter Wayne Carson Thompson, somebody piped up with the comment, “Well, let’s have a contest and everybody can send in fifty cents and – a box top”  On September 23rd, 1967 (The Letter) was number one in America.
