October 1, 2014: The 101 number one song of the day was recorded by a group that lost its name to Paul Revere and the Raiders so they reverted to something they had used when they were barely in their teens.

The 101 number one song of the day was recorded by a group that lost its name to Paul Revere and the Raiders so they reverted to something they had used when they were barely in their teens. They took that name from a song they used to sing but a group of record promoters liked the band but hated the name so eventually they decided to call themselves Rick and the Raiders. They did proms, sock hops and local clubs and eventually did some back up work for the Stangeloves who recommended them to one of the founders of Bang records who had a song that needed a group. They got together and released the song which would arrive at number one this week in October, 1965. But this was the same time that Paul Revere and the Raiders was on the rise so they were told to come up with something new. Instead they came up with something old – their original name – The McCoys – Hang on Sloopy
Headed by Rick D. Zehringer who became Rick Derringer.

The 101 number one song of the day was written especially for one half of a famous duo and the writer brought the song to their producer. Problem is, the producer had just quit working with them out of frustration. Today’s song played a role in bringing back the producer but the other half of the act was on the way out for good. He was Snuff Garrett and had helped the pair get back on the charts for the first time in several years but creative differences with the male member of the act brought the relationship to a premature end. Lyricist Mary Dean didn’t know that when she told Garrett that the female member of the duo was the only person who could do it justice. He agreed and started a process which would bring them back together. Meanwhile, it was the beginning of the end for her and her former partner – both professionally and personally. And that brings us to the song that reached number one this week of October 1973 for Cher – without Sonny (Half Breed)

September 29, 2014: The 101 number one song of the day was written and performed by the same guy who wrote “Sugar, Sugar” for the Archies. But afterwards, he fell on hard times until several years later when he achieved his biggest success with today’s song.

The 101 number one song of the day was written and performed by the same guy who wrote “Sugar, Sugar” for the Archies but afterwards, he fell on hard times until several years later when he achieved his biggest success with today’s song.

Andrew Joachim was born to Lebanese parents who emigrated to North America in the early 1900’s. But after some initial writing and recording success his chart career turned as cold as a Canadian winter where he grew up. He decided to form his own label calling it Ice records. He financed the recording session for the song you’re about to hear himself. He could only afford to cut two sides and because he considered the song to be so good, he included an instrumental version of it on the flip side. It took 14 long weeks to get to the top but by September 29, 1974 it finally way there. By this time he had started using a shortened version of his birth name and here he is with today’s 101 number one song of the day – Andy Kim (Rock Me Gently)

September 26, 2014: The 101 number one song of the day was never finished and wasn’t supposed to be a hit – but it was for a guy who had the Mamas and Papas as back up singers.

The 101 number one song of the day was never finished and wasn’t supposed to be a hit – but it was for a guy who had the Mamas and Papas as back up singers. The writers recorded a rough vocal so the singer could hear it before the final mix. A copy of that version got into the hands of a record label executive who turned over to a guy who worked for LA radio station KFWB. Within hours, the song, which was supposed to be a flip side to another – as yet undecided – song – was playing on the air and while the head of the record company was furious, it was too late. But nobody else seemed to care and the record was on its way to number one where it sat on September 26, 1965. Today’s featured singer had introduced the Mamas and Papas to the record label president who signed them and their first duties were to sing back up vocals for the man who got them their first contract. That earned him a mention in their autobiographical song “Creeque Alley” but after the song you’re about to hear, he never had another hit – Barry McGuire (Eve of Destruction)

September 25, 2014: The 101 number one song of the day was recorded by the only American to have a number one hit in Great Britain during a 68 week period that began August 8th 1963 through June 25th 1964. And he did it twice.

The 101 number one song of the day was recorded by the only American to have a number one hit in Great Britain during a 68 week period that began August 8th 1963 through June 25th 1964. And he did it twice. This man was so popular in Britain that when he toured the country in 1963 his opening act was the Beatles. The two songs that reached the top during the aforementioned period were “It’s Over” and today’s featured single…which took a little longer to get to number one in his home country but that’s where it was on September 25, 1964 for Roy Orbison (Pretty Woman)

September 24, 2014: Most of us know that Paul McCartney lost a bidding war to Michael Jackson for the rights to Beatles music but he was successful in purchasing the publishing rights to the music of the creator of today’s 101 number one song of the day – and a lot of that music was created right here in New Mexico.

Most of us know that Paul McCartney lost a bidding war to Michael Jackson for the rights to Beatles music but he was successful in purchasing the publishing rights to the music of the creator of today’s 101 number one song of the day – and a lot of that music was created right here in New Mexico. Today’s featured artist started taking piano lessons at 11 but within a year, he got hooked on the guitar. The song you’re about to hear was produced by Norman Petty and much of the singer’s subsequent music was recorded at Petty’s studios in Clovis. Later, Paul McCartney would buy both the studios and the music to ensure that the memory of the man who was at number one on September 24, 1957 would live on – Buddy Holly (That’ll Be The Day)

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. The contest never came off but the suggestion itself got them the name you know them by. 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.

September 22, 2014: The 101 Number One Song of the Day was written, produced and performed by the self proclaimed “Prophet of Love.”

The 101 Number One Song of the Day was written, produced and performed by the self proclaimed “Prophet of Love.” When he was only 11 years old he played piano on the classic 50s hit “Goodnight My Love” by Jesse Belvin. And then he grew up and – out to about 300 pounds. Despite his girth, his half sung, half spoken baritone quickly established him as a romantic figure – if not in person, at least in the background. During this week in September, in the year 1974 his biggest hit became number one in America for Barry White. (Can’t Get Enough of Your Love, Babe)

She was no stranger to success. In fact, she had amassed an incredible 12 number one hits as part of a group. That number was more than anybody but the Beatles and Elvis. But now she was on her own and she was nervous about beginning this new phase of her career. Although she was already famous for her singing voice, her producers were captivated by her speaking voice and so the original version of the song was rearranged to capitalize on her full vocal range. The result reached number one on September 19, 1970 for the now solo Diana Ross (Ain’t No Mountain High Enough)

September 18, 2014: The 101 Number One Song of the Day was co-written by John Lennon but Paul McCartney had nothing to do with it. It was the product of a former mime who changed his birth name so he wouldn’t be confused with one of the Monkees.

David Robert Jones was born on Elvis’ 12th birthday and by his own 12th birthday he was already deeply interested in music and was studying the saxophone. As he grew he became more interested in combining theatrics with his music. Eventually he came to be known as the ultimate chameleon of rock because of his constant changes in musical styles. With the help of John Lennon who can be heard singing on the end of today’s song, and guitarist Carlos Alamor, he came up with the song which reached number one this week in September, 1975. By this time, David Jones had changed his last name to Bowie – after the knife, he said. The song: “Fame”
