Top Ten Tuesday: WTSN (1270 AM, Dover NH), 2/24/63

WTSN in Dover, New Hampshire went on the air in 1956 as a Top 40 station. At some point (Wikipedia doesn’t say when), they switched to a News/Talk format. TSN stands for Twin States Network, signifying that they serve the Seacoast region of New Hampshire and southern Maine. They’re members of the Red Sox, Celtics, and Bruins radio networks, and have a translator station, W251CF, at 98.1 FM. They identify themselves as "News Talk 98.1 WTSN." Here is their Top Ten from February 24, 1963. I can honestly say that, until yesterday afternoon, I hadn’t heard #10 through #4.

  1. Little Eva, “Let’s Turkey Trot”
  2. Neil Sedaka, “Alice In Wonderland”
  3. The Orlons, “South Street”
  4. Rick Nelson, “That’s All”
  5. Johnny Mathis, “What Will Mary Say”
  6. The Tornadoes, “Ridin’ The Wind”
  7. Richard Chamberlain, “All I Have To Do Is Dream”
  8. Skeeter Davis, “End Of The World”
  9. Roy Orbison, “In Dreams”
  10. The Four Seasons, “Walk Like A Man”

And that’s Top Ten Tuesday for February 21, 2023.

          1. Yes to both. I watched The Thorn Birds, and also read the book (which was better IMO). I remember him as Dr Kildare, but not exact episodes. He was also Prince Charming in The Slipper and the Rose I think.
