WARM AND THE SONGS OF JUNE
Late June 1969 was an exciting time in WARMland. Local schools were merged into districts and there was literally no neighborhood public school anymore. New friends and rivalries were made but the mainstay for young people was the Mighty 590.
Plus this was a mere month before America made the attempt to land on the moon. Talk about a buzz in the region!
Three Dog Night had the number one song with its initial hit appropriately named "One". "Love Can You Make You Happy" by Mercy was at number 6 while the Spiral Staircase was at number 7. The latter tune by Pat Upton and the group became a regular song played at class reunions well into the next century.
Plus a local group, The Buoys debuted at number 35 with "These Days". That was significant because Susquehanna corporate never let their local stations promote regional groups on vinyl if they didn't think the group or record had a chance.
