The top 100 of 1961 concludes this week on The Early Years!

Affter you've enjoyed Come By The Hills with Sara Hillis tomorrow afternoon from 02:00 to 05:00, don't touch that dial, device, PC, Mac or smart speaker and join me in The Early Years where and when you'll enjoy the best music from Rock and Roll's Golden Age (its first quarter century) with an occasional nod to other decades and genres.
A single year, 1961, continues in the spotlight as I conclude the countdown of the top 100 from that year compiled by Billboard magazine. I'll pick up where I left off last week at #14 and continue to #1. What do you think it will be? After you hear the #1 song, I'll play some songs from 1961 that didn't make either the annual chart or the weekly chart. Next week, I'll play some songs that did make the weekly chart in 1961. If you have any favourite 1961 songs, send them along.
You can contact me any time by email at steve at with comments about the show and suggestions for future shows.
So join me, Steve Cutway, in The Early Years, as the top 100 of 1961 concludes, tomorrow afternoon at 05:00, after Come By The Hills with Sara Hillis and before Dan Sweeney's One Hit Wonders. The show replays Wednesday morning at 07:00 AM after Deep Dive with Graeme Innes and before Anthony Unleashed with Anthony Horvath, only on Mushroom FM, the home of the fun guys, making four decades of magic mushroom memories!
