Hit Songs Of 1967

Norm Gregory at KPUG in 19671967 was my first year in commercial Top 40 radio. Here are some of the songs I played (over and over) at KPUG, Bellingham WA USA.

It was the Summer Of Love. Like many West Coast disk-jockeys I got an invitation to The Monterey Pop Festival. Damn, I wish I still had that postcard.

My hippie girl friend (Whatever happened to Kathy Sally??) painted yellow flowers on the interior of my black 1956 Volkswagen. It was a long gone good time.

Some of the songs I love to this day. Some not so much. The songs presented here do not reflect any of those feelings.

The Royal Guardsmen
“Snoopy vs The Red Baron”
Tell It Like It Is
Aaron Neville

I Had Too Much To Dream (Last Night)
The Electric Prunes

I Dig Rock & Roll Music
Peter, Paul & Mary

Beatles – All You Need Is Love

Your Precious Love

Re: Mirage.

I love it when Tommy yells “Wait a second” between sung lyrics. And “Here she comes again.”

Incredible visual of late 1967 when my family moved from Little Rock A.F.B. to Fairchild A.F.B. and the kaleidoscope of events that ensued. As a sophomore at Medical Lake H.S. I recall the long bus rides from the air base to the high school and the radio station that was always selected was KJRB. All the tunes are like an old friend. Thank you so much for posting this site.

I am reminded that the summer of 67 was a wonderful top 40 summer. Arguably also it had to mark the summer sparked the emergence of the FM underground progressive radio movement.
