    Great start with King Elvis! And then I always loved Bobby Vee and Bobby Vinton. Bringing back hey Jude by The Beatles one of my favorite recordings, and Rod Stewart I did not realize that song had gotten to a number one. I loved his later recording of forever young I thought that was one of his very special songs. Has so much feeling in it. Maybe you could add that one of your next medleys. Ending up with exile which I never really listened to. Good song, and a number one hit. These were great Ray thank you so much for putting this together! You’re the best! 🥰

      Thanks, Sandy 🥰
      There were some pretty good songs at the top of the charts on September 27 throughout history. I’m very glad you enjoyed it, and I’ll keep Rod’s song in mind for the future! By the way, Maggie May was #1 for six weeks!

    This was a great selection of music! From 10 years old in 1956 to 32 in 1978, what a change, but loved them all.
