GO TO FLICKR AND MY NAME IS TOKENSURFER THERE YOU'LL FIND THE KIMN CHARTS FOR 65
Jan 21, 10 CFOX CHARTS 0
 
OK GARY I STAND CORRECTED YOU HAVE A HANDFUL ON CKGM AND CFCF COMBINED. THE OTHER
TWO  MONTREAL STATIONS I DON'T KNOW  THEM. I WAS SPECIFICALLY LOOKING FOR CFOX 1470
WITH GEORGE  OR GORDON SINCLAIR THE DIRECTOR AND DEAN HAGOPIAN AND BOB SHAW AND ?
CHANDLER AND ROGER SCOTT. THIS IS FROM MEMORY, SO I HOPE I CAME CLOSE. SO I
MISSPOKE WHEN I MADE A GENERAL STATEMENT ON NO CHARTS IN MONTREAL. BUT THERE'S
STILL NOT MANY. I USED TO GO TO CFOX  15 MIN. ON MY BIKE FROM BEACONSFIELD AND MAKE
THE TREK TO POINTE CLAIRE ON HYMUS BLVD. AND PICK UP THE CHART THERE, STARTING
SOMETIME IN THE SUMMER OF '67  TIL I MOVED IN 69. I DON'T HAVE THEM ANYMORE MY
MOTHER MUST'VE THROWN THEM AWAY.
YOU COULD ALSO PICK THEM UP AT YOUR LOCAL RECORD STORE. 
I ALSO DEDICATED A SONG TO A GIRL NAMED LORELEI ON CFOX . IT WAS I WILL ALWAYS
THINK ABOUT YOU(NEW COLONY 6)  ANOTHER TIME I TRIED REQUESTING FRIENDS BY THE BEACH
BOYS, AND IT WAS NO LONGER ON THEIR PLAY LIST. YIKES!! SO I HAD TO COME UP WITH SOME
OTHER SONG QUICKLY AND CAME UP TOMMY JAMES MONY MONY. BUT I ALREADY  HAD THE DUMB
THING IN MY COLLECTION.  
CFCF'S KINGPIN WAS DAVE BOXER(BOXERMAN). HE DIED RECENTLY HERE IN VANCOUVER BC
CANADA. I TALKED TO HIM ONCE ON THE PHONE ABOUT 12 YRS AGO IN VANCOUVER BUT HE
REFUSED TO DISCUSS ANYTHING  ABOUT BACK THEN. SO I CAME UP EMPTY UNFORTUNATELY.
CKGM HAD DENNIS OUTREMONT IN THE EVENING. BUT CKGM WAS PRIMARLY A TALK NEWS RADIO
SHOW WITH PAT BURNS LEADING THE WAY. CFOX WAS THE ONLY 24 HR MUSIC STATION IN 65
AND 66. I DON'T BELIEVE CFCF WAS ALL MUSIC 24 HRS IT HAD A NEWS FORMAT IN THE
MORNING. BUT I COULD BE WRONG. 
IF IT WAS MY CHOICE I WOULD FOCUS FROM 64-69. AND GET AS MUCH OF THAT IN THERE. 
AND THE MID -LATE 70'S ARE FOR THOSE WHO NEED TO KNOW IF THE VILLAGE IDIOTS OOPS
SORRY I MEANT VILLAGE PEOPLE WITH HOW HIGH THEY MADE THE CHARTS WITH IN THE NAVY. R
U KIDDING ME?!. I'M BEING SIMPLISTIC TO MAKE A POINT. BUT YOU GET THE IDEA.  YOU'RE
STILL DOING A GREAT SERVICE REGARDLESS OF HOW I WOULD GO ABOUT IT. THAT'S MY 2
CENTS WORTH.

Hi Jim...

  Here's another survey that's been up for a few months, and a few albums on it
haven't been added to the database yet. Just thought I'd give you a heads up!

  Oh, and Tokensurfer -- as a fellow Canuck, I'm looking forward to seeing those
Montreal charts!  

  
  Cheers,

  - Kenn. 
Jan 20, 10 EZ / MOR Surveys Or Playlists Greg Wolf
 
Hi Everyone:
My name is Greg and I'm a new member here. I am very happy to be here! I love
looking at old radio surveys from the 60's and 70's and am glad to meet like
minds..I love music research!

Question for you all..I'm looking for surveys / playlists for EZ / MOR radio
stations from the late 60's up to the early 70's. Would love to find out what some
of these stations were playing back in the day. I've gone thru Google books and
located a lot of the Easy Listening charts from archived issues of Billboard
magazine and now am now trying to track down some from the actual stations if they
still exist.

Can you help? Thanks so much and once again very excited to be here!
Jan 20, 10 RE: KIMN CHARTS Gary Pfeifer
 
 There is no priority towards 1970's charts here at ARSA.  Charts from ALL years are
treated as equally valuable.  However, if you click on the Statistics button on the
left side of the page, you will find the great majority of surveys here ARE from
the 1960's - particularly the years 1965-1969. Why am I inputting the WDRC surveys
from the 1970's?  Because I was very generously given a complete 10 year run of
these surveys from a contributor. I don't have 1960's surveys from WDRC.  If I did,
I would be inputting those also.  Why has it taken me a year to input the 1970 and
1975 surveys? After I uploaded my initial batch of surveys here, I made the
decision to upload new surveys which corresponded with the current day of the year.
Hence, I most recent surveys I inputted as those with a Jan. 20th date. So, it takes
me a year to input a year's worth of surveys.  People have commented to me that they
enjoy this methodology and look forward to each week's new survey.  I have inputted
almost 8,000 surveys here and enjoy the variety of typing up different stations
rather than spending all my time inputting one station.  That's just my preference.
 There's no politics here.  We input whatever is available in our available free
time and welcome all newcomers and surveys from all years and locations!  

 You said there are no Montreal surveys here.  Look again.  There are Montreal
surveys from CKGM, CJMS, CKVL, and CFCF.

 Please enjoy the site and anything you're willing to share with us will be most
welcome!
 

Jan 19, 10 KIMN CHARTS TOKENSURFER HIPPIE
 
THANKS FOR THE HEADS UP. BUT WHY IS THE PRIORITY ON 70'S WHEN THE 60'S ARE MUCH MORE
RELEVANT WHEN IT COMES TO CHART ACTION. I MEAN I COULDN'T CARE LESS WHAT DISCO SONG
CHARTED IN THE MID -LATE 70'S.  THE PRIORITY SHOULD'VE BEEN 60'S FIRST. THE WDRC
CHARTS FROM JAN 67-DEC 67 AND 66 SHOULD BE ON THERE NOW NOT 1976.  IT BLOWS ME
AWAY. AM I THE ONLY GUY OVER 50 THAT FEELS THIS WAY. NOW YOU GUYS HAVE GOT  ME
MOTIVATED, I SWORE I WOULDN'T HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH FACEBOOK  BUT NOW THAT I
HAVE MY BEACH BOYS UP THERE. I'LL BE UPLOADING ALL THE DENVER CHARTS ON FACE BOOK.
AND IT WON'T TAKE TWO YRS. TO DO IT. IT'LL  TAKE CLOSER TO TWO WEEKS IF NOT SOONER.
THEN YOU GUYS  CAN TAKE WHAT YOU  WANT FROM THERE I DON'T MIND. I'LL LET YOU KNOW AS
SOON AS I START. I WILL NOT BE BOGGED DOWN BY POLITICS. AND THERE WILL BE SOME
MONTREAL CHARTS ON THERE AS WELL. I SEE NONE ON YOUR SITE FROM MONTREAL THAT'S
WHERE I GREW UP ORIGINALLY AND  CHUM  1050 TORONTO IS NOT REPRESENTATIVE OF 
WHAT TRULY WAS GOING ON IN CANADA IT MORE REPRESENTS WHAT WAS HAPPENING IN THE
STATES THAN ANYTHING ELSE. I MAYBE A LITTLE BIAS COMING FROM MONTREAL BUT THAT
DOESN'T TAKE AWAY FROM THE FACT ABOUT CHUM 1050.  
I GOT KIMN CHARTS WHEN I LIVED IN THE STATES FOR 16YRS MOSTLY  IN DENVER AND I JUST
WENT TO THE RADIO STATION AND THEY JUST HAPPENED TO HAVE PULLED OUT ALL THE CHARTS
FOR SOME PROJECT. AND THAT'S HOW I GOT THEM IN THE EARLY 80'S.
Jan 19, 10 RE2: KIMN AND WDRC CHARTS ARSA Jim
 
Oops! - Meant that I'll type in the WDRC 1967 surveys for you first.  -Jim
Jan 19, 10 RE: KIMN AND WDRC CHARTS ARSA Jim
 
Welcome to ARSA, Tokensurfer. Our major keyer-inner, Gary Pfeifer, is already in
possession of all the WDRC 1970's weekly lists. He started/finished inputting 1970
& 1975 in '09, is currently doing 1971 & 1976 this year, and will keep up this "2
years a year" pace until they are all in. I also own every WDRC 60's weekly list,
starting from mid-1961. Connecticut is already very well represented here in ARSA,
with over 1000 surveys in (only California/New York have more, among U.S. states).
All the old WAVZ/WNHC New Haven lists I own have already been entered, and I am
currently entering in my many WPOP/Hartford weekly lists. Because Gary is already
going great guns with the 1970's WDRC lists, I made my 1960's WDRC lists the lowest
key-in priority. I have personally made rapid key-in progress of late, so be
patient. And, since 1966 is your personal WDRC priority, I will key those in for
your first when I start keying in that WDRC decade. I have no scanner, so if you
have good scans for lists already entered into ARSA, please feel free to add them
in. So, because of our existing "entry plan" for WDRC, you may wanna add in your
KIMN info first. Please e-mail our ARSA "CEO", Tim Warden, and he can get you all
set up to contribute info. And you're right, a dozen or so very kind souls (led by
Gary) have worked their butt off to enter in our almost 13,000 surveys to date.
Welcome to ARSA!   -Jim (ARSA database accuracy guy/survey keyer-inner) 
Jan 19, 10 KIMN AND WDRC CHARTS TOKENSURFER HIPPIE
 
HI I'M NEW TO THIS SITE. I HAVE ALL OF THE CHARTS OF WDRC STARTING IN '66 UNTIL THE
LATE 70'S. I'M MISSING THE CRITICAL FIRST 8 MONTHS OF '67. OF ALL THINGS TO BE
MISSING THAT'S THE WORST ONE. IT'S ALL NEWSPAPER CLIPPINGS. THE '66 CHARTS HAS THE
TOP 60 AND THE REST ONLY THE TOP 36. THE PROBLEM WITH THE 66 CHARTS IS THERE'S
LINES AND CIRCLES AROUND THE PRINT. YOU CAN STILL SEE THE ARTIST AND SONG BUT IT
LOOKS MESSY. I CHECKED AND THERE'S ONLY ONE CHART FROM THE 60'S ON WDRC.
THE KIMN CHARTS ARE PERFECT. I HAVE THEM FROM 65-68. 95% OF IT. I NOTICED THERE'S
QUITE A FEW KIMN FROM 67 ALREADY. BUT HARDLY ANY FROM THE REST OF THE YRS. I
SUPPOSE I HAVE TO SCAN ALL THE CHARTS AND THEN WHAT. AND WHAT SIZE SHOULD THEY BE
UNDER 200 KB.  IT LOOKS LIKE A LOT OF WORK. TOKENSURFER
Jan 9, 10 Attention Tim...... ARSA Jim
 
Tim, Geno came up with a great idea today - he embedded a comment for me in that
chart field for a survey he added today, knowing that I'd soon see it during my
daily ARSA review. In the future, survey keyers and I now don't have to bore
everyone with "inside ARSA menusha stuff" here on Chart Chat. Geno noticed that the
"Cupid" by Johnny Nash chart data for his list went over to the song "Cupid" by
Johnny Rivers instead. Upon further review, I foubnd that all of the more than 30
surveys including this Johnny Nash song ALL went over to the Johnny Rivers song of
the same name, in error. It took me a while, but I did figure out a "temporary Jim
workaround" for this, and now all current ARSA surveys with Johnny Nash's "Cupid"
have the chart info where they should be. But there's still a bad algorithm in the
master logic somewhere, and future ARSA surveys including this song will still
wrongly place the data under Johnny Rivers, until a permanent fix can be done at
your end. You have the only key to the "Algorithm Dept.", Tim, so just a heads up
to you, sir!    -Jim 
Jan 4, 10 CHUM Toronto RE3: 1981-12-12 / CHUM-FM ( Toronto, Ontario ) ARSA Jim
 
Oh, now I get you, Kenn! Yeah, every couple of months or so, I don't how (senior
moments, probably!), but somehow a title/artist entry sneaks in without me ever
seeing it. If the CHUM survey had been in ARSA for that long, then I defintely
goofed. I probably checked on of several newly-entered CHUM surveys at one time
(and yes, I've been goin' real hard of late adding in CT's WAVZ/WNHC/WPOP surveys;
and I must say, you're no key-in slouch either, Kenn!) :) And I must've accidently
missed clicking/browsing on one of the CHUM lists. So, were it not for your
heads-up here, it would still be that way - oops!. So, many thanks, buudy!   -Jim
Jan 4, 10 CHUM Toronto RE2: 1981-12-12 / CHUM-FM ( Toronto, Ontario ) K.A. Scott
 
Hi Jim...

  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
too!)

  Cheers,

  - Kenn.

  Cheers,

  - Kenn.  
Jan 2, 10 CHUM Toronto RE: 1981-12-12 / CHUM-FM ( Toronto, Ontario ) ARSA Jim
 
Thanks for the heads-up, Kenn, and Happy 2010 to all ARSA friends/laborers as well!
Nothing to worry about, though, because the first ARSA thing I do every night is to
check all of the day's newly entered surveys, for any new 45s/LPs that haven't ever
shown up on an ARSA survey before. (Thankfully, it happens less and less with every
passing day, as we grow larger and larger!) I will then add in all of the correct
title/artist/label/catalog # info for it. So the next time you notice that
happening, Kenn, just leave it the way you did this time. And, within in a day or
two, if you go back and browse the survey in question, you will then observe that
those new titles have now been fully incorporated/assimilated/accounted for, in
either our master ARSA 45 or LP database.   -Jim 
Jan 2, 10 CHUM Toronto 1981-12-12 / CHUM-FM ( Toronto, Ontario ) K.A. Scott
 
Hi Jim....

  Just noticed that two of the hitbound albums from this chart haven't been added
to the database yet.  An understandable oversight considering the the deluge of
surveys you've had to deal with this year!  

  By the way, happy 2010 to all the contributors to (and users of) this site!


  Cheers,

  - Kenn.  
Jan 1, 10 RE: Bill Anderson ARSA Jim
 
Nice pickup, Geno! A faulty ARSA algorithm was indeed the problem. I have just
manually repaired all three chart weeks for "Me."  -Jim
Jan 1, 10 Bill Anderson "Me" Geno Rice
 
This single appears in 3 successive surveys CKLW-1964-06-09;16;23 but it maps to
different unrelated singles in the ARSA database.  I believe such a short title can
fool the matching algorithm.  The title is correct and should be on Decca 31630.
Dec 30, 09 THAT OLDE 16-RPM SPEED Ben E. McCoy
 
yup, Kenn, the storybook recordings you referred to were oen use for the
anachronistic 16-RPM speed control which was still being manufactured into record
players into the 1960's era.
another reason for this very low speed was for TRANSCRIPTION DISKS utilised for
recording programs back in the golden days of early AM-broadcast radio -- shows,
sports, news, commercials, commentaries, interviews, soap operas, you know it.
ah, those were the days...

Dec 30, 09 RE: K.Y.A. MAGAZINE REPRINTS K.A. Scott
 
My parents used to have an ancient record player that had all four speeds.  (16, 33,
45, 78.)  My understanding is the 16 rpm albums were usually "talking books" on
record, for the blind or visually impaired.



Dec 29, 09 K.Y.A. MAGAZINE REPRINTS Ben E. McCoy
 
AWESOME, ROY, TOTALLY AWESOME MEMORIES!

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.

ben-san.

Dec 23, 09 RE: KYA LATTER-DAY SURVEYS Roy Ballard
 
hi ben! yeah, i added the 2nd page to the 1965-09-17 & 25 surveys too. the article
or picture might be cut off, but where else can you read that you can get a
portable record player that can play "all three speeds" for only $34.95?
it's fun and nostalgic.  thanks for the suggestion.   roy
