This week in music: 1962

(KFVS) -

Let's put a quarter in The Breakfast Show juke box of memories. This morning we dial in this week in 1962.

Here are the songs topping the Billboard chart 53 years ago.

At number five "Palisades Park" by Freddy Cannon.

Holding down the number four position was the theme to a popular John Wayne movie: "The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance" by Gene Pitney.

Checking in at number three was a performer who visited Cape Girardeau quite a bit in the 1970s as host of the station's annual telethon: Johnny Tillotson with "It Keeps Right on A-Hurting."

Mr. Acker Bilk was at number two with "Stranger on the Shore."

And in the number one spot was Ray Charles with a song that also was being played on country music stations: "I Can't Stop Loving You."
