The KHJ-LA Complete Top-30 1969 Post One (January-February)


I held off posting this for a few days as I had upgrades and wanted to review one more time - and I'm glad I did: I corrected the tagging on some tracks got the chance to find a few more mono single mixes. You can be sure that many of the versions included here are very, very hard to find. Some of these were even taken as needle drops from a few friend's original 45s.

1969 follows the same format as 1968: every single track presented (mostly) in order, using original mono single mixes if they could be found. Original 1969 KHJ station IDs, DJ patter and advertisements separate the music on each weekly survey. Each file is tagged with the week's survey where the song initially appeared.

This was the year that I started collecting and following the weekly surveys.  I remember virtually every one of these songs entering the top-30 and tracked its course, trying to predict where each song would be the following week. It was a kind of hobby. And because I followed the surveys, I can place details of what happened in my life each week with precise details. This is the only time in my life where I can place exact dates on events. So collating 1969 brought back clear memories of my 13-to-14-year-old self. I hope there are others who'll have the same experience exploring this collection.

This post includes two sections - 1968 to 1969 simply repeats the songs that entered the top-30 in '68 and were still charting.  You'll need this for a complete 1969 but not if you're going to be playing this with alongside 1968.

Also included are a few "bonus" songs that charted into the national top-10 but didn't make it onto KHJ.  There are surprisingly few of these, but I believe it's important to see what was missing too.
