Six O’Clock Triple Shot – 10/29/14 ‘Dark Side Of The Moon’ Sets Charts Record
(The Six O'Clock Triple Shot is a daily feature of three songs that share a common theme, heard weeknights on 94.9 WMMQ)
We jump into the Rock 'n' Roll time machine tonight, going back 31 years to October 29, 1983. This was the day that Pink Floyd's iconic LP Dark Side Of The Moon set a record for the longest streak with an appearance on the Billboard 200 Album Chart. After charting for the 491st consecutive week, it dethroned the record held previously by Johnny Mathis for his Johnny's Greatest Hits album. By the time it was all said and done with, Dark Side Of The Moon would continue its streak until October of 1988 after it finally from the charts after 741 weeks.
Tonight, we mark the occasion with a quasi-trio for you, called Side One. Tune in for "Speak To Me/Breathe/OnThe Run", "Time", and "The Great Gig In The Sky". It's tonight's Six O'Clock Triple Shot on 94.9 WMMQ.
