I was watching that game on TV (vs. the San Diego Padres). What made that streak even more incredible was that Seaver struck out the last batter in the 6th inning, then went on to strike out the side in the 7th, 8th and 9th. So the streak ended because the game ended! It might have gone on even longer if the game had gone into extra innings (it wasn't unusual in those days for a starting pitcher to go 9 innings or more).

From our FH Buddy Davie Allan, whose biggest hit "Blues' Theme" is about to debut on The Super Charts ... Davie also has a new album available thru iTunes, Amazon and CDBaby ... we've run links to a couple of tracks before (including a couple of vocal tracks by eighteen year old Paige Mills, who Davie is very proud of.) More details below ...
I've also included three instrumentals for my hardcore fans.
Hey Kent -
Perhaps this has been addressed before on this site, but why did the WLS weekly surveys occasionally alter a song title slightly? For example, "A Little Bit Me, A Little Bit You" shows as "Little Bit Of Me, Little Bit Of You" or "Somethin' Stupid" came out as "Say Something Stupid" (with no apostrophe). Maybe 'LS had English teachers proofread their surveys first? The WCFL surveys didn't have that issue. A little nit-picky, I know ...

Hey, it used to bug the heck out of me, too ... The Beatles classic "All You Need Is Love" was shown as "You Need Love" throughout its chart run ... and there were numerous others (as well as untold misspellings of the artists' names.) Probably more a case of "get it out there as fast as you can" than anything else ... our Top Tunes Of Greater Chicagoland would sometimes have a little fun with the artists and song titles on purpose ... lots of clever puns and little jokes were commonplace (and helped to make sure you read their charts closely.) kk
I am sending another old audio clip now that we are looking back 50 years since the Messengers' Midnight Hour was climbing the Midwest charts.

The sounds of FH67 are resounding in my ears!
Hey, can you tell Dem Bulls (da bears ha ha) to back off my Celtics a little ! (Hi Mark / Gohawks)
Have a great Weekend!
Everything old is new again ...
Promoters have announced a 50th Anniversary Monterey Pop Festival, to be held from June 16th thru June 18th ... EXACTLY fifty years after the first one in 1967.
I had the chance to listen to the new Sgt. Pepper deluxe box set the other day ... some interesting things on here (and some pretty tedious ones as well) ... but this is all stuff that has never been commercially released before so it's nice to have it in pristine sound. The packaging is exceptional and it'll be available on May 26th. You can preorder your copy now through Amazon.com. (kk)
