60s Eastside Flyers - Page 23

     Below are music charts from KRLA, one of the three major top 40 radio stations in Los Angeles in the 1960s, KFWB and KHJ being the other two.  These charts demonstrate the fact that Chicano artists, most from East L.A., shared the top 40 with major artists of the era such as The Beatles, The Supremes, Elvis Presley, The Beach Boys, James Brown, and Ray Charles.  Below each chart, I list the Chicano artists, their hit song title, and chart position.
