R&SRNR_145 – “THE TOP 40 LOST HITS OF 1959”

This episode spotlights "The Top 40 Lost Hits Of 1959." It was a vintage year for music, including some great records you never seem to hear on the radio, or the satellite or on anyone’s live stream anymore.

These include a song with the same title as a book written by the super star singer who sang it. Plus, the mostly-instrumental 45 that’s been featured in numerous major motion pictures, as well as national ad campaigns starting four decades after it was an international sensation.

We’ve also got hit records by two different groups of tree-dwelling rodents. Then there’s the hit record dedicated to a singer/songwriter who’s been inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame in two different categories.
