    I was not even a teenager but I do remember most of these on the radio very clearly in my mind. The old tube clock radio was always playing on top of the refrigerator in our house.

    Otherwise it was on the Delco am radio in my dad's 1969 Chevelle SS with "Astro Ventilation" .. now that was a nice car.

      That was the year I graduated from college in May so this chart is 3 months later. Layla is one of my favorite albums. But, Wayne Newton? Mouth and McNeil? Gimme a break.
