August 1969

Hi – Every once in a while, I see a listing of the top 40 for a certain week. This year someone has been highlighting 1969 – and the top 40’s are generally killer. This week in August 1969 is no exception.

So, armed with the list of the songs for the week ending August 20-something, 1969, I put together a podcast of those tunes. I left out a couple that I didn’t have/don’t care for, but here are 16 of the top 20 songs for the week.

Let’s think about what we were doing 50 years ago, listening to the radio, with The Rolling Stones, Johnny Cash, Tommy James & the Shondells, Jackie DeShannon, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Tony Joe White, the Youngbloods, the Guess Who, Kenny Rogers & the First Edition, Bob Dylan, the Archies, John Lennon & the Plastic Ono Band, Stevie Wonder, Junior Walker & the All-Stars, Three Dog Night, and Tom Jones.

This podcast is, as always, available to stream or download at There should be more content there, and I will try to put more things up this year. The podcast is also available to download as a podcast at your favorite podcast streamer – iTunes, Stitcher, etc. The podcast is called Check that out sometime. I welcome suggestions and comments, too – leave them as you will. Thanks for everything you do to encourage me.
