    I find it to be a bittersweet experience, you have to be in the right mood, as I am today. Other times it can be depressing, especially so many RIP.
    I'm just glad I , like you, got to live it!! Great time to be into music, it was coming at you from every angle , in every style, all these new records, it seemed endless didn't it?? The ever progressing American Top 40. No time to worry about who was what race , what age , what sex, what genitalia, what homeland, or of what combination of all of the above. It was all about the music.

    So,
    this Top 40, for the week of June 6, 1970, the highest debut song at number 15 is:


    The Jackson 5 , STOP THE LOVE YOU SAVE!

    The one station that epitomized what you just said was ..........CKLW! A Canadian station that was a true powerhouse!
