Mark writes, "Here is the inside, fascinating account involving the complex U.S. charting of the cool, overlooked Kinks' tune, 'Who'll Be The Next In Line.' Featuring the result of five months of deep research, as well as keen insights provided by Doug Hinman— the foremost authority on all things Kinks— this essay will take you back to the classic Top 40 radio world in the summer of '65. The outcome is exclusive info and revelations, which will demonstrate graphically how the single was promoted against the steep, challenging odds presented by the American pop music business. For the loyal readers of my articles, you will notice a more casual, hopefully readable style and approach—no more Headers! I trust that you will enjoy my latest piece, and if you do, please spread the word. Thank you for your interest and support. As always, I appreciate the opportunity that Dave Emlen has afforded me in sharing my research and writing with you." Mark Teehan, 04/18/2022
