WIBG Philadelphia Survey March 25 1963

Another Top 99 survey from Wibbage. Note Don L. Brink on the bottom, soon to be known as Scotty Brink. Study the groups in the survey carefully, in less than a year the Beatles would arrive and many of these groups would never chart again.

Click to enlarge, thanks to Scotty for the scan.

  1. Yes, it's true that once The Beatles arrived, th4e face of popular music eliminated many of the artists chances of charting. A deeper look into this situation, may reveal that it was a much broader cast of characters responsible for this phenomenon. It was the entire "British Invasion" that set the radio & record world onto a new path. Bands like The Dave Clark 5, Herman's Hermits, The Rolling Stones, & The Hollies were ALL as popular as The Beatles, for a while, but then, the Fab 4 slowly became the rulers of the musical world. As a side note, I believe that if The Yardbirds were to stay together for another 6 years, THEY would have upstaged The Stones. But, ya nevah know...
