This Week: The Top Hits of 1961



It was the year of new beginnings . . . JFK’s Inauguration…Barbie meeting Ken for the first time . . .  Alan Shepard becoming the first American in space . . .  Roger Maris hitting 61 home runs . . . and a group from Liverpool playing at the Cavern Club for the first time.

This Thursday at 9 PM, Alan Seltzer will play the top hits of 1961 in another Flashback special show on “The Grooveyard”.  We’ll count down the Top 25 songs of the year and share as many other hits that charted in 1961 as possible.WCWP logo
