As some weirdo on the radio used to say back in the day ... "Time to bug out for the dugout and blow this pop stand / stay outta trees".
I probably should wait until December to send this to you -- but I might not remember then!
The #7 biggest record of 1967 in Hartford was "No Good to Cry" by the Wildweeds, a Hartford-area group who were extremely popular locally but didn't make much of a splash nationally. ("No Good to Cry" spent four weeks on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, peaking at #88.) The lead singer and guitarist of the Wildweeds was Al Anderson, who later found fame with NRBQ and as a songwriter.The other oddity I noticed is Don Grady's "The Children of St. Monica," which came in at #47 in Hartford but didn't even make the Billboard Hot 100 for one week; it peaked nationally at #132. Don Grady, who died five years ago, appeared on My Three Sons for 12 years and later had a successful career as a songwriter. I'm not sure why "The Children of St. Monica" was so hot in Hartford, but it certainly was!
