Happy October! I thought it would be pretty neat to take a look back to see what we were listening to as October started fifty years ago.

Back in October of 1970, Diana Ross had a huge hit with Ain’t Not Mountain High Enough, CCR’s Lookin Out My Back Door was at it’s highest position on the charts at #2, and the trio Dawn, led by the one and only Tony Orlando, was at #3 with Candida which stayed on the charts for 11 weeks.

Here are the top five for your listening pleasure!






The Jackson 5, Rare Earth, Anne Murray, Edwin Starr and Free wrapped up the top 10. To check out the complete Hot 100 from this date 50 years ago, click the link below!
