WCFL Chicago Top 40 Charts 1965-1976 lists, by title and artist, every tune that charted on the WCFL-AM weekly music surveys in the Windy City from the first chart in late 1965 through the final survey in February of 1976 (less than a month before the station itself stopped playing top 40 music altogether). WCFL's status as Chicago's second great top 40 radio station should in no way diminish the memory of what it accomplished and the enjoyment it brought to the city in a little over a decade-a decade that can truly be called the "golden age of Chicago top 40 radio." Combining high energy, attitude and musical daring, WCFL even managed at one point to dethrone perennial top 40 powerhouse WLS-AM. Re-live the days of "The Voice of Labor" with these rankings of the top songs of each year, the top artists and songs of the decade and a listing of every #1 hit. For those who grew up in the Windy City or are fans of Chicago radio, WCFL Chicago Top 40 Charts 1965-1976 is an essential reference.
