    Played on the '60s channel today: Richard Chamberlain's Blue Guitar. It was written by Burt Bacharach and Hal David and reached #12 on the adult contemporary chart and #42 on the Hot 100 in November 1963. The B-side was also a Bacharach-David composition, a nice little ballad called Close To You. Yes, Chamberlain was the first to record it – and after you hear the first ten seconds of it, you'll know why it was not the A-side.

    The '50s channel just played I Remember by the Five Discs, a doo-wop group from Brooklyn. It was a top-30 hit in New York and Boston in 1958 but never charted nationally. The group formed in 1954 as the Flames. Two former members of the Lovenotes, including lead singer Mario DeAndrade, joined the Flames and in 1957 the group recorded a demo of I Remember. After getting turned down by several labels, they signed a contract with Emge Records, changed their name to the Five Discs and re-recorded the song for their first single. DeAndrade left the group a year later. The Five Discs went through several lineup changes and had a few more hits in the New York area, including Never Let You Go in 1962. They changed their name to the Boyfriends in 1963 and released one single as Dawn in 1968 before going back to being the Five Discs. Here is I Remember, one of the doo-woppiest doo-wop songs ever recorded:
