Re: Rhythm Radio

Good start for the top 10. The Curtis Mayfield written "Let's Do It Again" by the Staple Singers at #10. It's bubbling under the top 6000 here at AM.

New Jersey's own Moments are on right now. The #12 song of the year, a pretty ballad called "Look At Me (I'm In Love)."

Soon after this they became known as Ray, Goodman and Brown.
