  1. It is a great top 40…I found one that I knew but didn’t know who did it…Daniel Boone Beautiful Sunday…like you said yesterday it’s been decades since I heard that… hell 31-40 is top shelf.

    • I love finding old songs like that… Donny didn’t let us down…I missed the F the first time I looked…the Osmonds must balance it out.

    • I agree. I saw all of the A’s B’s and it was like one classic song after another. It was before disco…bad disco that is… and the Soul songs were still soul. Not a bad one in the batch…the big O not included.
