Thank You Rich Appel and Bob Radil for the IRS 104

Oldies radio can be boring since stations like to play it safe by playing the same greatest hits over and over again.  I think I'm a little tired of hearing Brown Eyed Girl by Van Morrison, Mony Mony by Tommy James and the Shondells, and Happy Together by the Turtles among many other "burnouts".  These are not bad songs, but listeners are just tired of them.

For several years Rich Appel has conducted a survey of songs that should have charted in the Top 10 years ago.  Many songs become more popular as oldies than they were as hits.  He calls this the IRS (It Really Should have) 104, which he plays as we must submit our tax forms.  I submitted my list to Rich, but 8 Miles High by the Byrds was my only selection that made the list which can be seen at

These 104 were heard on Friday night on Bob Radil's show on Rewound Radio and Saturday and Sunday on Rich Appel's show The Rest of the Week on WRNJ from Hackettstown, NJ.

Thank you Rich and Bob for all your efforts.
