The KFRC survey is back up - with the correct survey images this time.

Yup, works fine now. Thanks!
Oh, source for the cat. no. on the Ginette Reno single is Ted Kennedy's book
"Canada Top 40".

Thanks everyone. Kenn, it's interesting that you mentioned breaking singles as on
1/15/1971, there were two World Premieres: Tom Jones' She's A Lady and Mungo
Jerry's Baby Jump. At least one of these went on to be a big hit!

I have also experienced similar frustrations in the past, when ARSA pre-post survey
information is initially entered in error - often, it can't immediately be
changed/corrected, for some reason. My workaround has always been to just wait a
week or two, and then try again to make the exact same change. I have no idea why,
but the change will then often "take", for some unknown reason! But, since I've
already had do a special "CHUM workaround", to leave the redundant "FM" band name
in the call letters field for CHUM-FM (despite the existance of a separate "Band"
field already inside ARSA, so ARSA can distinguish it from CHUM AM - an error also
waiting to be fixed), goodness knows what will happen here, when "bad ARSA code
meets more bad ARSA code". Due to Tim's ARSA time constraints, maybe he would
consider giving me a special "second programming code access key", just for such
VERY minor code fixes. I did it for a living for 10 years, and I am very confident
that I could quickly repair lots of these very minor ARSA issues. But, it can be
quite dangerous to have more than one person have this kind of powerful system
access, and to set all this up for me may create more work for Tim than it would
end up saving him! Knowing this, I will respectfully and totally defer 100% to
Tim's wishes here, either way - I'm just throwing the offer out there. By now,
Tim's had six years to evaluate my ARSA efforts/competence. I only make this offer
now in an attempt to help ARSA become less quirky, and to make Tim's ARSA life

Thanks for the catch, Rob, and for making the correction, Ken! Don't know how I
slipped up so much on this one.

I agree with you, Kenn. A change to the title in the database with a notation
would seem to be appropriate considering the unique circumstances pertaining to
this title. Strange that the record label did not correct the error at some point.

Likely mismatched because that was one of the early surveys added in 2004 when the
matching engine wasn't nearly as accurate. Cheers.

For the current entries on the "Everybody Dance" survey page, all but one entry
should be for "Dance, Dance, Dance (Yowsah, Yowsah, Yowsah)".
The lone correct entry is for KSOL, San Francisco, 1978-05-22.

I am missing quite a number of 1966 & 1967 WHB 40 Star Surveys that I'd love to get
copies of and the timing would be perfect as I'm currently contributing all of my
1966 surveys and will be starting 1967 soon. I'd be more than happy to contribute
any you have to the ARSA data base courtesy of you. Probably the easiest way to do
this would be for you to scan them and e-mail the image to me as an attachment at
firstname.lastname@example.org. If you'd rather, I'll provide my mailing address and
you can mail me a paper copy or save an image to a thumb drive and I'll do the
scanning and uploading to ARSA. Let me know and am very much looking forward to
hearing from you.
Happy Holidays! - Lee

Thanks for making those corrections. There's still a slight problem as the two
separate entries for "You Took The Words Right Out Of My Mouth" in the database
aren't sorting correctly. Perhaps just combining them into one entry will solve

Thanks for the warm welcome.
yes I have almost all CIHi charts through 1991. In the mid eighties instead of
attending classes, I spent many hours pouring over microfilm at the university
I'm just glad I've found a reason to dig all those charts out, and relive my past.

Ignore the prior comment of mine - I see what you mean now. Everything is fine
on the top level survey page, but about half the LW numbers dropped by one position
on the data base input form for some reason. I believe everything should be correct
now. Let me know please. Thanks for pointing this out.

||RE2: 1981-09-19 / CKY ( Winnipeg, Manitoba )
Thanks, as always, for your hard work and detailed explanations! I figured you
just missed the LP info, so no worries. With the phenomenal amount of material
being added to the database these days, it's bound to happen once in a while! (I
always try to enter the LP info on any given survey, and of course many 80s surveys
for AOR stations are ONLY of LPs.)
Oh, and I've entered a few scanned surveys, but I get most of my survey info from
microfilmed newspapers held at various libraries. Unfortunately, there's no way to
effectively scan the microfilmed images -- at least not a way that I can afford!
Still, anytime I come across a scannable survey, I try to add it to ARSA.

||RE2: 1981-12-12 / CHUM-FM ( Toronto, Ontario )
Just to be clear, I always give you a day or two to input new albums/singles into
the database -- and you usually manage to fill them in within hours (or even
minutes) of my postings!
This particular entry had been up for about a month, though, without the relevant
LPs being added to the database. So I figured it had just slipped through the net
somehow, and thought I'd give you a heads up. Anyway, it's fixed now...thanks!
By the way, you've been on fire recently, entering (I think) something like 200
or so surveys in the last few weeks. Don't know how you manage to do it, but
congratulations. (And congrats to Gary, Roy, Rick, Geno and the other regulars

||RE2: 1982-12-23 / CFMB ( Montreal, Quebec )
I get almost all of my charts from microfilmed newspapers. If I can figure out
how to copy charts from microfilm (the library has a newfangled machine that might
just allow me to do that), I'll not only send you a copy of a CFMB chart, I'll
start posting the chart images here on ARSA!
|Oct 30, 12
||RE2: 1983-10-06 / CFMB ( Montreal, Quebec )
Going forward, there should only be 1-3 new chart entries per week on these
alternative charts for 1983. There's also some 1982 weekly charts, the first one
of which will probably have a number of new-to-ARSA entries ... but I won't post
that one for a few weeks, to give you a break!

Paul, Kenn nailed it exactly. Even though an ARSA algorithm temporarily mis-assigned
that 45's data to a different song, not to worry - it won't (and didn't) stay that
way for very long - even if a "black dot" appears. I normally get a few of those
every week; it's just an automatic part of my daily ARSA cleanup routine. And, like
Kenn said, if a couple of days goes by and it's still wrong, then feel free to Chart
Chat me. But, especially during the first 24 hours after you've keyed it in, be
patient, because I'll 99.9% have both found it/fixed it myself by the next morning.
In other news, Paul, I have NO idea how you've found surveys for stations like WNBC
and WBLI. They're both highly desired and highly elusive. Like Kenn, I wanna extend
a major thanks to you for your incredible surveys contributions to ARSA of late.
Thanks to our other terrific "regular keyers" as well. Man, we're on fire! -ARSA
