Top Ten Tuesday: KIJV (1340 AM, Huron SD), 11/18/55

KIJV in Huron, South Dakota (about halfway between Sioux Falls and Pierre) has been at 1340 AM since it first went on the air in 1947. Now simulcasting on 95.3 FM as “Tiger 95,” they’re playing Hot Adult Contemporary music. Here’s their survey from all the way back in 1955, before I was born…

  1. Gale Storm, “I Hear You Knocking”
  2. Gogi Grant, “Suddenly There’s A Valley”
  3. The Platters, “Only You (And You Alone)”
  4. Al Hibbler, “He”
  5. Tennessee Ernie Ford, “Sixteen Tons”
  6. Billy Vaughn featuring Ken Nordine, “The Shifting Whispering Sands”
  7. Mitch Miller, His Orchestra & Chorus, “The Yellow Rose Of Texas”
  8. The Four Lads, “Moments To Remember”
  9. The Four Aces, “Love Is A Many-Splendored Thing”
  10. Roger Williams, “Autumn Leaves”

And that’s Top Ten Tuesday for November 22, 2022.

  1. I had no idea that I hear you knocking is that old. I just keep hearing the rock version in my head. What a nice variation even though I am not a huge fan of talking in the songs like this( although I love Lorne Greene). The Yellow Rose of Texas…good ole Mitch.


  2. When I was a little girl I LOVED “The Yellow Rose Of Texas” and would dance around to it. I think the imagery of a yellow rose, which we didn’t have around us, resonated with me. I had blonde hair, I was a yellow rose.
