Today’s 101 #1 Song of the Day was recorded by Harold Ray Ragsdale who was just 16 when he was signed by Capitol records in 1957. The hits started coming in the early 60’s with Mercury Records. By this time, he had changed his name and actually took his mother’s maiden name – as for the single that reached number one on this day in 1974 – we’re sure it made his mother proud…or not. Hear it next on 101 Gold. See, it was an ode to the fad in the early 70’s of running around nekid in public… (more…)

The artist who recorded the 101 number one song of the day started out as a fallen woman looking for a savior but ended up knocking off one of the Hot 100’s longest running chart toppers.  (That’s Next.)  She was born in Hawaii but moved to London where she wound up singing the role of Mary Magdelene in Jesus Christ Superstar.  Later, when the show moved to Broadway, she relocated to New York.  It was there that she met Eric Clapton and sang back up vocals on the guitarist’s fabled “comeback tour.”  She also sang vocals on “I Shot the Sheriff.”  But she left Clapton after being introduced to the BeeGees who were about to begin recording their Saturday Night Fever soundtrack… (more…)

Today’s 101 #1 Song of the Day was co-written by Jackie DeShannon and she recorded it in 1974 but it was not commercially successful until another artist recorded it in 1981. She recorded it live in one take and that version became the number one song of all of 1981 and it spent a total of 9 weeks in the top spot. Hear the rest of the story and the song next on 101 Gold… (more…)

Today’s 101 #1 Song of the day started out as an improvisation during a concert in the late 60’s at a skating rink in Canada – the band felt they needed to liven up the crowd…and they thought the tune, with its impromptu lyrics was actually pretty good. They happened to see a kid in the crowd recording it on a cassette so they asked for the tape so they could record it in the studio and by May 12th, 1970… (more…)

The 101 Number One Song of the Day is about a teacher who returned to the High School he attended as a teenager and the writer who was especially hired for the project found it to be a somewhat difficult challenge. —It was written for a TV series which would launch the career of a man who would become an international superstar.  Since it was originally just a TV theme song it lasted less than 60 seconds.  But it became so popular that a second verse was later added so it could be released as a single… (more…)

Today’s 101 #1 Song of the Day was from a performer who was just the third British woman to score a number one on the U.S. Hot 100…and her singing career was launched with a reality show in 1979…hear more next on 101 Gold.

The 101 number one song of the day got to the top with the help of searing solo guitar work by Eddie Van Halen who did it for free.  (the song is coming up next)  He said, “I didn’t care, I did it as a favor.”  The man who wrote and recorded the song was so multi-talented that none other than the master of dance Fred Astaire, who lived in the same neighborhood when the performer was just a little kid said, “He is a wonderful mover… (more…)
