Cupid Missed ~ Valentine's Day 1965

Transistor radios were creative in '60s/'70s

It’s time to bare our hearts for February 1965 …
Oh! The temptations of LUV! WRIT* / Milwaukee DJs plucked our heartstrings in their cute cowboy hats for the Feb 7th song survey

Listeners quickly felt the foibles of crushed love to start the month of romance moaning “You’ve Lost that Lovin’ Feelin’” (Righteous Brothers). What other station dodged Cupid’s arrow?

After Valentine’s Day, WABC / New York fans jumped on the dump bandwagon putting Gary Lewis & the Playboys’ “This Diamond Ring” at the top … She took it off her finger, now, it doesn’t mean a thiiiiing … 

So much for love … but both stations saw the kitschy “Love Potion Number Nine” (Searchers) climb to the top ten. Our hearts take a beating but keep on ticking.
