Top Ten Tuesday: KNOX (1310 AM, Grand Forks ND), 1/9/60

Grand Forks, North Dakota is where KNOX has been since 1949. In the late 1950’s it became a Top 40 station, then dropped that format for news and talk. It simulcasts on K300BG at 107.9 FM and K277DN at 103.3 FM. Here’s their Top Ten from January 9, 1960.

    1. April Stevens, “Teach Me Tiger”
    2. Frankie Avalon, “Why”
    3. Jan & Dean, “My Heart Sings”
    4. The Fireballs, “Torquay”
    5. The Browns, “Scarlet Ribbons (For Her Hair)”
    6. Johnny & The Hurricanes, “Reveille Rock”
    7. Miss Toni Fisher, “The Big Hurt”
    8. Santo & Johnny, “Tear Drop”
    9. Johnny Preston, “Running Bear”
    10. Freddy Cannon, “Way Down Yonder In New Orleans”

    And that’s Top Ten Tuesday for January 10, 2023.

    1. Was working part-time at Radio station WILS in Lansing Michigan. Loved the Big Hurt by Toni Fisher. Gave the opportunity to make a comment about her riding on the wing of a jet.


    2. That first song? Wow she needs a room to make herself happy. Yikes! I listened to thec2nd and thec3rd almost made it to the end and then just stopped and I can’t move forward which is a bummer.


    3. What a great list. My mom was a huge Browns fan (The Old Lamplighter was her favorite) and this song always tugs at my heart. My sisters and I all memorized Running Bear – it became a family favorite and we could pantomime it to perfection!
