Lost and Found: Bay Area Top 40 listings collection part one 1960 to 1967

Continuing with the “stuff I found in San Francisco” theme, here is the first part of a post about a folder I purchased filled with Top 40 listings from radio stations in the Bay Area which covered the periods of 1957 to 1967.  It’s fair to say that the collection is more complete during the earlier period but I’m more interested in the later period and was most interested in the sole listing from 1967 which includes references to some of my favourite bands – The Seeds and The Left Banke – so I’m going to do this backwards (like the credits for Robert Aldrich’s Kiss Me Deadly) and go from 1967 through to 1957.  I’ll have to see how I go with all the scanning – there’s a lot – so this may be in several parts.

This part starts, then, from 16 January 1967 and goes back to 4 January 1960.  I hope someone will find this of interest – personally I like all the doodling and comments the collector makes, but most of those will follow later with the listings from the 1950s.  Seems like the enthusiasm was fading by the early to mid 60s, which is a shame as I’d love to know what the collector made of bands like The Seeds and ? and the Mysterians and so on.

Anyway, here’s part one:

About tinynoggin

I love films (anything from exploitation stuff to stylish Eastern European cinema, but I'm not really into blockbusters and modern Hollywood), music (Serge Gainsbourg, Jane Birkin, Michel Polnareff, Left Banke, Francoise Hardy, The Seeds, Love, The Zombies, etc) and books (Kurt Vonnegut, Julian Maclaren-Ross, Michel Houellebecq, Patrick Hamilton, Alan Sillitoe, and more). I take photographs with my Lomography Diana F plus or my Olympus Trip and like making stuff in my spare time.
