WARM AND THE SONGS OF JUNE

Toward the end of June, the turbulent year of 1968 had no sign of cooling off. Robert Kennedy was just buried. The Democrats were in serious disarray.  Richard Nixon was poised to be the nominee of the Republican party (but not before he was challenged by an actor turned Governor Ronald Reagan and things were as unsettled as ever in this nation. 
Meanwhile the number one song on WARM and most of America was Herb Alpert's Burt Bacharach ballad "This Guys In Love With You" The Four Seasons debuted at number 33 with "Saturday's Father from their album (which was an answer to he Beatles Sgt. Peppers, theirs was called The Imitation Life Gazette".) 
At number 13 the Alpert A and M Recording Co. influence was still being felt with Brazil '66 "Look of Love" and The People were at number 18 with "I Love You".
