Toronto - A song by a Canadian composer was the most performed single piece of music on U.S. radio and television last year.
ASCAP has announced that "Aquarius" by Galt MacDermot of Montreal was played more frequently than any other song during 1970.
ASCAP officials advised the Composers, Authors, and Publishers Association of Canada - of which MacDermot is a member - that two other songs from the musical score of Hair, Let The Sun Shine In and Good Morning Starshine were in the top five foreign songs played on U.S. radio and TV.
"This is the first time that Canadian musical works have ranked so highly in overall U.S. airplay," commended CAPAC general manager John Mills.
