Top Ten Tuesday: WLLL (930 AM Lynchburg VA), 10/20/73

Not really much to tell about WLLL in Lynchburg, Virginia, other than currently they run a Black Gospel format. They first took to the airwaves in 1963, and we know they were a Top 40 station in 1973, where this survey comes from. Let’s see what was in the Top Ten almost 50 years ago…

  1. Bob Dylan, “Knockin’ On Heaven’s Door”
  2. Art Garfunkel, “All I Know”
  3. Uriah Heep, “Stealin'”
  4. Eddie Kendricks, “Keep On Truckin'”
  5. Isley Brothers, “That Lady”
  6. Jackson Browne, “Redneck Friend”
  7. Rolling Stones, “Angie”
  8. Gladys Knight & The Pips, “Midnight Train To Georgia”
  9. Joe Walsh, “Rocky Mountain Way”
  10. Seals & Crofts, “We May Never Pass This Way Again”

That’s Top Ten Tuesday for October 18, 2022.

  1. These are great tunes. I believe o have that CD of Art Gunfunkle which I love. I like him more than Paul Simon. You know…I heard of that city before and I would want to change that name.


        1. Lynchburg, VA was named for John Lynch, who ran the ferry along the James River. Lynchburg, TN and Lynchburg, OH were named after the one in VA. It’s from Gaelic Ó Loingsigh. I know what you’re thinking, though….


  2. I haven’t thought about Uriah Heep for a long time, John. One of those bands that, if you hadn’t heard their songs, you might buy the album for the cover art.
