        WMCA New York Survey for Week of 15 November 1957
         NEW YORK'S OFFICIAL GUIDE TO RECORD POPULARITY  
                    WMCA'S TOP 21 SINGLES                
     MONTHS OF EXPERIENCE, study and testing, and a survey of
     top record men in the nation, have convinced WMCA that
     there can be no real accuracy in measuring disc popularity
     beyond the first 21 tunes!

     This week WMCA introduces the magic "TOP 21" - destined to
     become the big number in music - the latest most authentic
     guide to New York's top tunes plus an up-to-the-minute
     report on up-and-coming albums and singles heading for the
     "TOP 21"!

     Thanks for making WMCA your music station!
