A-Z Billboard Singles – Letter H

Gary: I have written F,G and now H while spending March in the State of Utah, St. George to be exact.  Gorgeous place, nice people, great golf and good food. 
The Reference Book is still the same;
624660-M
Now for the letter
H

Hall,Larry / Hamlett Ohio, left us in 97 age 57 / This song was a Contest Song on CHUM Radio in Toronto. They could not find a winner, as they only played 3 notes.  I knew the song, but I had a job, so I told my mother who was home in the mornings, she called early, like an hour before the contest, she told them the answer, they wanted it gone (To win you had to have name and artist, that’s what I do), she waited the hour and won.  It was only $100 but in 62 that was a big deal and it was nice that my mother won.
