Question
IN 1975 I RAN UPON AN ADD FOR THE TOP 100 ROCK, MOWTON, AND POP SONS OF THE 1960-1969 AM RADIO CHARTS. AT THE TIME, THEY WERE ON LP' ONLY TO MY KNOWLEDGE.

DO YOU KNOW WHERE I CAN OBTAIN AND PURCHASE?

Answer
As I understand the question, you're looking for the titles of the top Mowtown and Pop songs of the 1960's. For Mowtown, at least, just google Way Back Attack.com. There you'll find all the titles and artists names. I didn't find a Pop songs listing but it must be there someplace on the Internet. To hear the songs, you can go to Youtube and enter the song name and artist's name. Also, you can list the songs and hunt for the original records at garage sales and swap meets like I do.

I have a good general knowledge of oldies rock and roll, traditional country and some pop music up until the late '60s and especially pre British invasion stuff. Automotive songs are a specialty of mine and I love Doowop and R&B oldies.

I had my own radio program on a local volunteer station, CJSF, from 2001-03, in which I played automotive related music from my own collection as well as spoke about the latest old car shows in my area. I'm also a singer/songwriter with 3 songs recorded on CD and many more I'd like to record.

Organizations
I'm a member of S.O.C.A.N. and a local old car club, Lions Gate Model A Ford Club. I'm also a past member of the Pacific Bluegrass & Heritage Society as well as a songwriters group.

Publications
My writing appeared for 16 years in a national Canadian newspaper called Old Autos, published twice monthly. In it, I published stories on every automotively related song I knew of. For instance I did an extensive article on the many group names which took their names from car makes and models,

Pop and rock music history was taught as a part of the radio broadcasting course I took at B.C.I.T.
