Jan 30, 10 K.G.B. CHARTS DUPLICATED Ben E. McCoy
the last two postings for KGB Radio show charts for
dates 11 October 1967 and 25 October 1967, yet
the published survey for October 25th is a duplicate
of the 11 October survey previously posted.

thought i should bring this to someone's attention.
thank you guys!
Dec 29, 09 K.Y.A. MAGAZINE REPRINTS Ben E. McCoy

your inclusion of selected pages from the famed KYA radio
magazine is one heck of a treat as a 2nd pager to their weekly surveys...
yeah, the prices on that 'modern' 3-Speed portable record player might seem a
bargian now, but back then, how come
the manufacturers left off the 16 RPM speed??? anyone remember that ancient speed
mode and WHAT it was previously used for?

anywho, kudos to the ROY man for keeping his postings so interesting out here in
The Great Internet Wasteland.


Feb 16, 10 K.Y.A. NEWSPAPER Ben E. McCoy
hi there, Roy:

just wanted to express my appreciation for your ongoing efforts on publishing a 2nd
page accompaniment to the 
KYA radio surveys you post from their newspaper's era...
have found so many nostalgic memories i'd forgotten about while reading through the
second pagers.
the current posting about P.J. Proby really takes me back
to a time when so many poets-turned-sognwriters charted some
exceptional recordings of artistic merit.
thanks again for the extra effort you have done
posting those KYA newspaper extras!!

best regards,
ben e. mccoy.
howdy back to you, Roy:

notised there a now 4 small frames on the page for
KYA survey date 722-1966, two of which are "X" out and the remaining two frames
show page 1 and 2 of your most recent posting... HOWEVER, both the main ARSA Home
Page and the KYA survey page (for same date) BOTH show boxes with "X"s in place of
the usual larger sized front survey page!
therefore, there is thing to click on and my browser shows
"Error on page" for the KYA page with those 7-22-66 postings. sure hope all what i
have said here makes sense cuz the bottom line is that the survey pages in quesiton
will NOT enlarge to their usual reading size, 10-4?

yup, some weird things be happening at ARSA lately, hmmmmmmm.

(confounded) ben.
Feb 27, 10 K.Y.A. SURVEY QUIRKS Ben E. McCoy
hi Joel,
good eye for discerning the presence of The Rolling Stones big hit from 1965
appearing a year later, 1966, back on radio K.Y.A.'s weekly survey's...
from my own knowledge and experience in the radio broadcasting business, i am
reminded of the fact that many grand olde hits returned to both local and national
pop charts following their initial survey runs. examples include Chubby Checker's
"The Twist" (1960 and 1962) being the most famous, and The Youngbloods with "Get
Together" (1967 and 1969) as a notable reissue; and then, there was the late Bobby
"Boris" Pickett's "Monster Mash" which re-charted many times over the years,
certainly, in the Bay area, the Stones amassed quite a cult following, so it is not
surprising their biggest hit record resurfaced at KYA.

Feb 1, 06 K104 Erie, PA Top 104 Surveys John Gallagher
I used to work at K104 (now Star 104) in Erie, PA and have contributed 3 year end
surveys to Gary for 1985, 1986 and 1987. Enjoy!

Love the surveys site. I also posted a link to the surveys site at Many
of us mobile dj entertainers were on the radio at one time. So, hopefully you'll
see some new additions soon!
Sep 17, 15 KACE charts Paul H.
There is a small typo for the recent KACE chart additions...the state is misspelled
as Calirfornia, should be California.
Aug 19, 07 KADI - Radio in St. Louis John Schwob
Gary or Tim,

I have started adding some surveys from KADI in St. Louis and somehow I did
something wrong and there are two different stations called KADI 96.5 FM in St.
Louis.  How do I get those combined into one station.

Sep 12, 07 KBZY John Gallagher
Kinda wondering how KBZY did in the ratings. A rather large rotation (though, not
uncommon in those days) and MANY songs I'VE never heard of...
Mar 8, 11 KCPX NEWS SURVEY March 8, 1968 Ben E. McCoy
Gary, thanks for the information on our source material for
the KCPX surveys...  FYI, i really enjoy reading
this station's publication!

Mar 7, 11 KCPX NEWS SURVEY March 8, 1968 Ben E. McCoy
Hi Gary,

was wondering why the FOURTH page of this really cool
radio station publication was not published this time around... would appreciate
that missing 4th page being posted, that is, IF there was one.

thank you for consideration of my request, Sir.

best regards,

ben e. mccoy.
Jan 3, 16 KDAY SURVEY Nov. 18, 1961 Ben E. McCoy
dear Gary,

i notised this week's posting of a 1961 KDAY survey being
described on ARSA's index page as being "R&B";
however, during that time period, KDAY Radio was
most definitely a "TOP 40" station.

Jun 26, 12 KDON K.A. Scott
Not sure why, but most of the surveys for KDON have duplicates.  There are two exact
same versions of the surveys for November 20, 1966; September 22 & 29, 1967; and
July 31, 1970.

Jan 20, 12 Kenn: CKGM 90's, going forward..... ARSA Jim
Thanks for the offer to step up, Kenn. I'm leaning towards just putting "Canada" in
as a temporary placeholder for CKGM info stragglers. I know you go back and
re-check your entered charts after the fact. So, when you then see the incomplete
label/catalog fields, do your research, see what you can find, then initially
"Chart Chat" your findings for me to then update into ARSA. If this works out OK,
I'll then just give you my personal e-mail, for you to then provide me periodic
info updates as you get 'em, so as not to bore everybody else with such details on
here long-term, OK? By the way, I checked, and it turns out the CKGM lists at issue
here were transcribed to the 'Net from handwritten lists, by the very same guy that
had first jotted down the info as it  originally aired. A noble quest, indeed. And
we have entered in some vintage Buffalo chart info gathered just this way
previously into ARSA, so there is precedent. But I've already found numerous
artist/title spelling errors on his CKGM transcriptions, further complicating my
research to date. Personally, this "all human being method" of his isn't my
favorite way of obtaining reliable ARSA source info (station-generated lists,
either published or "official in-house" are), but you're obviously quite gung-ho on
the 10+ years of CKGM info he's uploaded this way, and you feel that his info has
been deemed to be reliable enough for us to use here. And Kenn, since you're our
"Canada ARSA CEO", I will just "table" my own reservations about it, and totally
defer to you here, buddy!    :)  Thanks again.  -ARSA Jim                  
Aug 30, 07 KEOS Rob Ellis
Tim,  I added a survey for KEOS before I added the station.  KEOS appears twice now.
 Can you eliminate the blank one?   Thanks.

Looking for any KEWB jingles from the 60's.  Particularly from the "color radio"

Nov 29, 08 KFRC - 610 Survey for November 29th John Gallagher
The survey is listed as being from Nov. 29, 1972, when actually it should be listed
as Nov. 29th, 1971.
Jan 30, 11 KFWB Robert Harlow
Rick, Yes Oldiesloon does not have the Fab 40 Surveys for   for 1/4,(no 1/11 ever
published)  or 1/18/58.  They have the Al Jarvis /Music City list instead. The
first real KFWB Fab 40 Survey shown on Oldiesloon is the week ending 1/25/58.
