Good Friday evening, and welcome to Top 10 Flashback. We’re going back a bit further than usual this week and featuring music that will mostly be “before your time,” but I think you’ll understand. Tonight, on this solemn anniversary of one of the darkest days in America, we will jump on the bandwagon and reach back 50 years to see what AM Top 40 radio was playing before the music stopped that afternoon. It’s both historically significant and a good snapshot of what Americans were listening to just before the Beatles came here.
