American Top 40- The 60’s -week of November 27, 1965. What really strikes me about this Top 40 is the lack of British acts- we have hit singles from The Beatles and The Rolling Stones but the British Invasion is not all that evident in this particular Top 40 in late 1965.

  1. Happy Thanksgiving Day, Hans! “Turn! Turn! Turn!” by the Byrds is hands-down the best of this bunch. I enjoyed reading founding member, Chris Hillman’s newly-published autobiography, “Time Between,” this past week.
