On this Day September 24, 1966

The Association started a three week run at No.1 on the US singles chart with ‘Cherish’. The New Christy Minstrels almost recorded the track but Association member and songwriter, Terry Kirkman, held onto Cherish instead of selling it for $1000. The finished recording played for 3 minutes and 25 seconds, but the singles label listed the time as 3:00 so that DJs wouldnt be discouraged from playing a long song.
