Mar 22, 14 KRUX Phoenix RE: 1964-03-22 / KRUX ( Phoenix, Arizona )Beatles Dilema Gary Pfeifer
 Hi Rick,

   Thanks for bringing this up.  While I am sure that some of the Beatles songs can
be figured out to a reasonable degree, since the chart does not list specifics,
these would be just educated guesses.  I'd rather not have suppositions on our part
entered into the database as that could cause even more inaccuracies into a song's
chart run history than just grouping as "Beatles Hits".  At least, that's my
opinion.  Would Tim or anyone else care for chime in?

  I guess some stations grouped all the Beatles songs into one entry to preclude up
to a third or so of its chart consumed with just Beatles songs. Personally, I
enjoying seeing that March/April 1964 charts packed with Beatles songs!

Before I key in this KRUX chart I have a problem.  Beginning with the chart and all
of those in April KRUX groups all Beatles hits into one chart number. BUT they
donít identify which ones they are. In May they go back to identifying which songs
they are and they are a totally different group from March. Iím sure I can figure
out one or two charts, but the problem is not knowing when a particular song ended
its chart run and when did the newer ones begin? It would be easy to just put
ďBeatles HitsĒ but it wonít help you with being accurate with each songs chart run.
Have you come across this before? WJET does the same, but they identify each song
included in their groupings. Yeah Yeah Yeah !

Congrats on #3000!  I always enjoy your contributions, Rick, and am looking forward
to many more.

Rick - Thank you very much for all your dedication and effort!!  We greatly
appreciate all the surveys you've shared!
Mar 11, 14 WKBW Buffalo 1979-00-00 / WKBW ( Buffalo, New York ) Rick Hy
This WKBW Year End 1979 Top 100 survey marks my 3,000th keyed in survey. Had to pick
a Buffalo survey to commemorate this entry. I have so many great memories of
listening to early Buffalo radio Top 40 with Danny Neaverth, Tom Shannon (Wild
Weekend Theme), Joey Reynolds and Dick Biondi. Great times! Now on to 4,000
Mar 2, 14 WBLK Buffalo / Depew RE: 1983-02-28 / WBLK ( Buffalo / Depew, New York ) K.A. Scott
No worries, Rick!  I look forward to seeing what other goodies you'll be posting for
us in the future.  (I'm most interested in the "Golden Horseshoe" area --
Toronto/Hamilton/Buffalo and environs -- but enjoy seeing charts from all over the
place, and from all different eras....)

Thanks Kenn for catching that. Must have been a senior moment. The 2/26/84 chart is
correct as is. However I just put in the wrong Michael Jackson record on the
2/28/83 chart. It should read BILLIE JEAN, not THRILLER. Thatís been corrected.
But, I couldnít figure out why the scan didnít come up as well. So, I re-scanned
the chart. Iím glad you are enjoying the WBLK charts and are keeping me honest. I
wish I could say that I did the switch to see if anyone was really reading the
charts, but , no, that wasnít the case. Thanks, and keep up the good work.

Hi Rick...

  Love these WBLK charts!  But can you check your source material on this one?  The
single is the #1 slot the previous week was "Billie Jean"; this week "Billie Jean"
has fallen off completely and the album track "Thriller" is at #1.  That seems
fishy to me....

Thanks, Gary!
Feb 26, 14 KLIV San Jose RE: 1970-09-03 / KLIV ( San Jose, California ) Gary Pfeifer
  The 1969 self-titled Boz Scaggs album has been added and the two album entries now
properly match up.  Thanks for pointing this out!
Feb 26, 14 KLIV San Jose 1970-09-03 / KLIV ( San Jose, California ) J. A. Theroux
I noticed that the self-titled Boz Scaggs LP on this survey and the previous week's
survey directs to the Boz Scaggs & Band LP, but that LP wasn't released until late
1971.  I believe this is the Atlantic LP that was released in 1969 (Atlantic SD
8239) which is currently not listed in the ARSA database.

Thanks, Jeff
Feb 25, 14 KLIV San Jose 1970-12-10 / KLIV ( San Jose, California ) J. A. Theroux
In honor of what would have been George Harrison's 71st birthday, I posted a
December 1970 KLIV chart with him at the top of both the singles and LP charts.
Well done, George!

Also of note: At #19, the original version of Rock And Roll, Hoochie Koo by Johnny
Winter (Columbia 4-45260).

Hey Frank...

  It took a while, but here's a scan of a CFMB chart for you.  Enjoy!

Feb 9, 14 Looking for 1964-1965 WLOF (Orlando FL) Surveys Dennis Chapman
Growing up in Orlando, FL, I was a rabid listener of WLOF Channel 95 - a great AM
station that broke many records not played anywhere else and it inspired me to
pursue a career in radio.  Arsa has a complete 60's collection of WLOF surveys from
Oct 1965 on, but I'm looking to complete them for all of 1964 and Jan-Sept. 1965. 
Anyone able to assist? 
Feb 7, 14 RE2: More KLIV surveys J. A. Theroux
Thank you, Gary!  I understand it may take a while before I can get access to enter
my surveys so I will be patient.
Feb 5, 14 RE: More KLIV surveys Gary Pfeifer

   I've gone through all the KLIV surveys I was supplied and uploaded all that were
not already in the database; therefore, please feel free to enter the 1970 surveys
you've acquired.  No duplication of effort but I appreciate your asking first! 
Thank you in advance for your efforts!
Feb 5, 14 More KLIV surveys J. A. Theroux
To Gary and Rich Stivers,

I've run across a source for KLIV surveys not yet posted in ARSA, the period is
from April to December of 1970.  They were published in a local newspaper, I have
scans of these surveys and I would like to upload them into the ARSA database (I
will email Tim Warden for access rights).  I know you have a number of KLIV surveys
to enter into the database, I just want to make sure you don't already have these so
that I'm not doubling your efforts.

cooperation will be tremendously appreciated. My email address is

Jan 31, 14 RE: The Charts for the last week of January 1964 Gary Pfeifer
  Interestingly, Bobby Vee, of all people, seems to be one of the very first to
react with his obviously Beatles influenced "I'll Make You Mine" hitting the WABC
and CKLW charts as early as Jan. 28, 1964.
Jan 30, 14 The Charts for the last week of January 1964 James White
A glance at charts for this week across the country tell quite a story:   The
Beatles were hitting the charts and moving up quickly.  The British Invasion had
begun, but most of the other artists on those charts didn't have a clue as to what
was in store over the next several months.  By the end of March, the Beatles held
down the top 5 spots nationally, and Peter & Gordon, The Dave Clark 5, The Rolling
Stones, Chad & Jeremy, Gerry & The Pacemakers, Hermans' Hermits, The Searchers, and
more, were about to take over the American airways.
