Chart compiled by listeners voting
on the songs they hear on Radio Dupree

This chart is ... weird. It begins and ends with Yes, but still doesn't. And inbetween we find five Steely Dan songs and the same song two times by the same artist!

To address that last oddity first we've sent our statistics and archive experts to explore the fact that George Harrison's My Sweet Lord is at 6 and again at 10. We'll see what they come back with and add to this post whatever info they find.

Four different albums and five different songs make Steely Dan hitting a record when it comes to simultaneous songs on the Radio Dupree chart. One third.

And what about Yes? Anderson, Bruford , Wakeman and Howe had all played in Yes and Jon Anderson saw this 1989 album as a reunion of sorts. But legal aspects kept them from recording and touring as Yes. Suggestions of calling the band The Affirmative or No wasn't adopted and the decided to stick with their own last names.

And that's it for this month.

King of the World...always number one in my son's book. He has loved that song since he 7 or 8. As he says, what's not to like. A repeating killer keyboard line(performed by Donald Fagen on an arp soloist) and nuclear annihilation. I am so proud. :-)
