                       WAVZ - THE TOP 100 SONGS OF 1974

(for 1974 and for this one year only, the WAVZ Program Director decided to
 buy a "syndicated" year-end countdown, to both play on-air and publish as
 "Official WAVZ Tabulations". However, the rankings did not match up with
 what WAVZ played/charted during 1974 at all. For example, WAVZ never even
 added/played #68 ("Clap For The Wolfman"), #81 ("Back Home Again") and
 only played #89 ("Please Come To Boston") briefly. Numerous other rankings
 were either "way too high" or "way too low". As a result, the station went
 back a few years later and re-tabulated an "internal, official 1974 Top
 100", using both the 52 WAVZ 1974 lists and the Top 100 ranking system
 WAVZ/KC101 had used in both the late 70s'and all through the 80's. Both
 lists were saved in station archives, with a notation similar to this
 attached, mainly just for posterity/accuracy going forward. This later
 list was never officially published, but appears here as scans 1 and 2.
 The syndicated/published countdown is also included here, as scans 3 and
