The 70’s on 7 replay of American Top 40 this week comes from the week of January 6, 1973. An exceptional week -full of great singles. So many great singles but I’d have to narrow it down to “Superstition” Stevie Wonder or “Papa Was A Rollin’ Stone”- The Temptations as the two greatest. 1973 and no Osmonds or Tony Orlando and Dawn!!
