Top Ten Tuesday: KOOK (970 AM, Billings MT), 3/17/68

KOOK (pronounced "cook") in Billings, Montana went on the air in 1951 and presumably was a Top 40 station until 1998, when they changed to KBUL and broadcast a country format. They’re now a news-talk station simulcasting on 103.7 FM. And that’s about all I could find out about them, though I did find this ad from 1981:

The announcer on the commercial is Major Dan Miller. Anyway, let’s examine their Top Ten from St. Patrick’s Day in 1968. If you prefer the playlist, you can find it here.

10: Gary Puckett & The Union Gap, “Young Girl”

9: Donovan, “Jennifer Juniper”

8: The Monkees, “Valleri”

7: Petula Clark, “Kiss Me Goodbye”

6: The Troggs, “Love Is All Around”

5: The First Edition, “Just Dropped In (To See What Condition My Condition Was In)”

4: Manfred Mann, “The Mighty Quinn”

3: Hugo Montenegro, “The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly”

2: The Balloon Farm, “A Question Of Temperature”

1: 1910 Fruitgum Company, “Simon Says”

And that’s Top Ten Tuesday for March 14, 2023.

    1. I think I heard “A Question of Temperature” for the first time yesterday myself. A lot of times I won’t recognize the song until I play it, and I thought that might the case with this one but… nope…
