It was 40-years ago today we first heard from Huey Lewis and the News.
It was on this day in 1983 the band released its breakthrough album, “Sports.”
It went on to sell 7-milion copies and produced five hit singles.
Lewis says he was surprised how well the album did, considering they were hoping to get just one hit on the radio
Huey Lewis and the News were based in San Francisco and ultimately achieved 19 top ten singles across the Billboard Hot 100, Adult Contemporary, and Mainstream charts.
