 Lee,

   Very much appreciate your understanding and cooperation! Beginning with 1965,
there will be many more WABC's surveys already entered using the printed survey
date.  I know you'll try your best to make your newly entered survey as consistent
as possible with those in the database.  Thx!

   Gary

Hi Gary

The changes you suggested have been made.  I totally agree with you about the
confusion created by the difference between WABC's survey unveiling and printed
survey dates; perhaps this is why the Musicradio77.com WABC website does not
contain any survey images. Prior to my beginning to enter 1965 surveys, this WABC
date variance was not an issue as relatively few WABC surveys had been contributed
to ARSA and I used the website survey dates with only a few date conflicts. 
However, since the ARSA data base contains quite a few 1965 WABC surveys, I've had
to return to my survey files and change the survey dates I downloaded from the
website so as to fit ARSA's 1965 WABC survey date continuity flow. A few more
anomalies might occur as I go forward but there really aren't that many 1965 WABC
surveys left to contribute.  While this date variance is kind of confusing, I feel
the 1965 WABC survey gaps in the ARSA data base deserve to be filled and am happy
to do so.  Cheers.

  Hi Kenn,

   It was a single released on Tower and it's now been added to the database.  Thx
for pointing this out!

Hi Gary...

  Thanks for fixing the Mathis and Mack tracks!  Here's another misfiring redirect:
 The #72 hit on this 1968 chart ("Everyday" by The Main Attraction) is currently
redirecting to the 1983 hit "Everyday I Write The Book" by Elvis Costello & The
Attractions.  Once the The Main Attraction song is entered into the database, this
problem should cease.  

  (Just FYI, I can't find a single release for this track, but it did appear on The
Main Attraction's 1968 LP "And Now...The Main Attraction".)

  Cheers,

  - Kenn.

 Lee,

  Thanks for your response.  I see that the previously entered 2/20/65 WABC survey
(taken from the printed survey) corresponds with 2/16/65 survey on the
www.musicradio77.com website, which is not the 11 day gap usually seen between the
unveiling and printed survey dates.  I agree with you that it then appears logical
that the 2/13/65 printed survey would correspond to the 2/9/65 survey on the
www.musicradio77.com website.  However, if we do that, it appears that there then
is a missing survey - what printed survey date does the www.musicradio77.com
website's 2/2/65 survey correspond to? 

  I see the 3/6/65 printed survey corresponds with the 2/24/65 survey on the
website - back to the 11 days again.  Either the date on the 2/20/65 printed survey
was in error or the gap between the unveiling and printed survey dates varied from
time to time.

   This whole thing about the difference between WABC's survey unveiling and
printed survey dates has always made my mind spin. :)  I've tried to avoid this
confusion by only entering WABC surveys where I had the printed survey or
copies/images thereof.

   Here's my suggestions and if you donít believe these are proper, please let me
know.  Modify your note to indicate that this survey corresponds to the 2/9/65
survey on the www.musicradio77.com website and also change the LW numbers to the
LW's from the 2/9/65.  This will at least eliminate confusion of anyone comparing
the two.  I know this is not perfect but I don't see any ideal solution.  No matter
what we do, something is out of wack.  Right now, we still have the missing 2/2/65
survey.  If printed surveys of these dates show up later, we can always modify
dates to whatever is actually shown on the printed survey.

  Thanks for your assistance.

Hi Gary

I agree with you concerning the confusion on this survey as I was confused by this
particular survey once ARSA Jim made us aware of the 11-day gap between WABC print
and unveiling dates.  I also agree that this 2/13/65 WABC survey should  correspond
with the musicradio77.com 2/2/65 survey.  What I think happened is that when I
looked ahead to the printed WABC 2/20/65 survey you had previously contributed, the
LW data didn't correspond with the musicradio77.com 2/2/65 survey; rather, the LW
data corresponded with their 2/9/65 survey which is what I used while dating it
2/13/65, making the appropriate LW data changes, and ignoring their 2/2/65 survey. 
Since the real answer may be lost to history, it appears we can either let this ride
(and eliminate the Note), use the musicradio77.com 2/2/65 survey (and date it
2/13/65) and ignore the LW mismatch with the printed 2/20/65 survey, or delete this
survey and move on.  Your call and standing by.

 Hi Lee,

  There's a bit of confusion on this survey. In your NOTE, it states that the
printed survey date was 11 days after the actual unveiling date (and the date used
on the musicradio77.com website).  So, this 2/13/65 printed survey should
correspond with the 2/2/65 survey shown on musicradio77.com. However, this survey
corresponds with the 2/9/65 survey on musicradio77.com and the LW numbers don't
seem to match up with either.

   Could you please clarify or correct. Thanks!

    
Nov 22, 12 CFRA Ottawa RE: 1958-11-22 / CFRA ( Ottawa, Ontario ) Gary Pfeifer
 
Hi Kenn,

  I added the Jeanne Mack single (thanks for the label info) and the entry on the
CFRA survey is now directing to the proper song.

  
 Found that "Heavenly" by Johnny Mathis was released on a Columbia extended play
(EP) with 3 other songs.  All have been added and the Johnny Mathis entry on the
survey now directs properly.

  Thanks for bringing these to my attention.

Hi Gary...

  For this survey, the track "Jimmy" by Jeanne Mack is redirecting to "Jimmy Love"
by Jeanne Black.  Once the Jeanne Mack single is entered into the ARSA database
("Jimmy"/"Dirty Dishes", on Class 2060), this should take care of itself.

  There's a similar problem with the Johnny Mathis track "Heavenly", for the CFRA
survey of 1959/11/21.  It's currently redirecting to a Johnny Madara track of the
same name.  I can't find evidence that the Mathis version of "Heavenly" was
released as a single, but it's track 1 on his 1959 LP "Heavenly".

  Cheers,

  - Kenn.

Will do; have a great weekend.

 Lee,

  I couldn't find a way to contact the website administrator either.  Let's stick
with the decision to leave them off unless further evidence of their
authenticity/origin is obtained.

Re: the WKIX year end surveys.

I again revisited the website and couldn't figure out any way to contact a site
administrator.  The closest I could find was a link for a Blog site but there
hasn't been a post to its since 2007.
Nov 8, 12 WKBR Manchester RE4: 1961-11-05 / WKBR ( Manchester, New Hampshire ) Gary Pfeifer
 
 Lee,

  I agree with your reasoning and conclusion.  Is there any way to contact the
website's adminstrator to determine whether they have any info regarding the origin
of those surveys?

Re: the WKIX year end surveys.  
I revisited the website from which I obtained the WKIX EOY surveys and could find
nothing to indicate their origin.  Given this, along with the fact that they are
text copies and there seems to be some controversary as to their credibility, I'll
refrain from contributing the 1965-1974 (and earlier) WKIX EOY surveys from that
website.  Cheers.

 The second part of this post regarding WKIX should have been addressed to Lee. 
Sorry.

  Marty,

  Glad you enjoyed seeing the WWRL survey.  It is an honor to have someone who was
actually involved in the compilation of the contents of some of the surveys we so
much cherish here!  How long did you spend at WWRL?

 Rick,

  Enjoy your Sedona visit!  A most beautiful and relaxing place!  Be sure to visit
the Red Rock River Crossing area.  As Sedona is about a two hour drive from here, I
visit frequently and always return refreshed.

  Re: the WKIX year end surveys.  If those are indeed the official published
surveys and not an error on the website, then you can certainly add them in the
future - with maybe a notation of how they mirror WABC's.
Nov 6, 12 WKBR Manchester RE: 1961-11-05 / WKBR ( Manchester, New Hampshire ) K.A. Scott
 
Enjoy your time in Sedona, Rick -- you've earned it!  Looking forward to more of
those great early 60s charts upon your return...

Cheers,

- Kenn.

Gary

I've been out of town for the past 5-6 days and just came across this post.  That's
certainly interesting that this WKIX Top 100 of 1964 is a mirror image of WABC's Top
100 for 1964, and that the ensuing WKIX Top hits of the year do the same.  I have
the ensuing 1965-1974 WKIX Top Hits Of Year surveys you referenced; do you want me
to not contribute these when the time comes since there seems to be some questions
as to their authenticity and the Raleigh- NYC connection?

Thanks also for the kind words.  This brings back many memories.  Iíll be in Sedona,
Arizona for the next two weeks, so I will be back at it when I return. Lots to go
yet.  Take care, all. Rick
