Try these. A couple have 50 choices, of course, so I will narrow them down if needed. I think that these will go quickly once the most obviously connected ones have been spotted. There is a connection and an odd one out.

1 An American state capital.
2 A team sport.
3 An actor, novelist, film director and screenwriter (with slightly different spelling).
4 An American state.
5 A town in Berkshire.
6 An unsuccessful candidate for the US presidency.
7 A London mainline railway station
8 A semi retired Irish broadcaster.
9 An English group who are best known for their only UK number one from 1970.
10 A species of deciduous or semi-deciduous tree.

Sorry still none are correct. So that I do not mislead, I think that the Irish presenter is better known for Irish TV. From memory Mungo Jerry have had 2 number ones (Baby Jump and In the S...)

They have, but Edison Lighthouse is the only one I could find with just 1.

Not Mathews S C either (not sure if that is a 1970 song). There is definitely a group who had only one number one in 1970. I hope that I do not give too much away if I say that I went to a quiz once where the question setter believed that this group was an individual.
