Top Ten Tuesday: KRBE (104.1 FM, Houston TX), 5/9/78

KRBE in Houston started out as, of all things, a classical music station in 1959, at a time when the FM technology was still plagued with stations fading in and out. It stayed a classical station until the late 1960’s, when it switched to Top 40. They’re now broadcasting a mix of Hot Adult Contemporary and Top 40. Here’s their survey from 44 years ago, May 9, 1978.

  1. Barry Manilow, “Can’t Smile Without You”
  2. Andrew Gold, “Thank You For Being A Friend”
  3. Chuck Mangione, “Feels So Good”
  4. John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John, “You’re The One That I Want”
  5. Paul McCartney & Wings, “With A Little Luck”
  6. Yvonne Elliman, “If I Can’t Have You”
  7. The Bee Gees, “Night Fever”
  8. Heatwave, “Always And Forever”
  9. George Benson, “On Broadway”
  10. Bonnie Tyler, “It’s A Heartache”

And that’s Top Ten Tuesday for May 10, 2022.

  1. What a 190 from classical to pop. I enjoyed listening to the music even this one from Chuck Mangione. I always like Bonnie Tyler
