This week in music: 1970

(KFVS) - Let's travel back in time and check some headlines from 45 years ago.

It was in 1970 when President Nixon asked Congress to allow 18 year olds to vote.

Also that year, Soviet cosmonauts set a record of 17 days in space.

Wall Street set a record by gaining 32 points in a single day.

And radio took a softer sound.

This week, Billboard Magazine's Hot 100 had the group Bread at number five with "Make It With You."

The Jackson 5 checked in at number 4 with "The Love You Save."

At number three was Freda Payne with "Band of Gold."

Three Dog Night held down the number two spot with "Mama Told Me Not to Come," a song that had just spent two weeks at number one.

And in the top spot was The Carpenters with the biggest hit of their career. "They Long to be Close to You" spent 4 weeks in the number one position and is considered one of The Carpenters signature hits.
