    • The only one I didn’t recognize was the Roberta Flack song which at least to me upon hearing it- is kind of bland. I know I heard it back then just not very memorable IMO.

    • I don’t remember or have ever heard Prove It All Night. I don’t remember Dave Mason’s version of Will You Still Love Me…and, I just read where it stopped at 39 and was his last Top 40 hit. I don’t remember Hot Love, Cold World.

      The rest, I remember.

    • I think there were singles that just didn’t get much play on local stations- maybe they were Top 40 over the nation but in certain areas- no. I would listen to the Top 40 back then and there were songs that I would rarely if ever hear on my radio otherwise. Of course the ones in the Top 25 usually got play everywhere I figure.

    • On the 70’s on 7- I listen every Saturday morning at 6am to a repeat of the American Top 40 that is replayed from back in the day- that is the one I feature. For the one I do mid-week on the 1980’s- I pick a Top 40 and listen to all the songs again on youtube.

    • I am always up around that time.. they replay it during the weekend- but I always catch the first time.
