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.

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
Dec 23, 09 KYA LATTER-DAY SURVEYS Ben E. McCoy
 
say Roy,
your recent addition of 2nd page images to the K.Y.A. music surveys from their
magazine era is rad, man, totally rad!!
sure makes for fascinating, if not historical, reading of the way it was back then
in the "the times they are a-changin'" mid-1960's.

Dec 23, 09 KYA SURVEY MIX-UP Ben E. McCoy
 
ahso, Gary, the delicate intricacies of computer data
key entry -- from even four years ago -- was and still is, quite a challenge for
every archivist to this
amazing website!
was pleased to have caught that little quirk for ya, guy.

Dec 23, 09 RE: WPOP SURVEY MISMATCHED??? Gary Pfeifer
 
 I see what happened here.  Looking again at the survey image now, the survey
printers goofed and misaligned the song titles and survey position numbers.  It is
off by two lines.  When I originally typed up this survey 4 years back, I
apparently interpreted it differently and entered the songs in accordance with the
improperly aligned position numbers and showed the first two songs (which had no
position number) as extras.  I've made the correction.  Thanks for bringing this to
my attention.

Dec 23, 09 WPOP SURVEY MISMATCHED??? Ben E. McCoy
 
greetings, fellow chart enthusiasts:

just notised an analomy with the 27 September 1972
edition of the "WPOP POPular Music Survey"...
the typed-in Top 40 data does NOT match that
of the accompanying survey images for the same date.
thought the original poster of WPOP's surveys might
want to look into this mystery, yes?
Dec 21, 09 LATTER K-Y-A SURVEYS Ben E. McCoy
 
say Roy,
want to let you know how much i have personally enjoyed each and every posting of
the past KYA Radio music surveys... they have been truly educational, informative
and just plain fun to read and digest.
looking forward to the different approach of your future postings for KYA's latter
years, but may i ask:
would you consider adding a 2nd back page for something interesting from that
station's magazine publication for each survey added, henceforth???

Dec 13, 09 RE: Marvin Gaye ARSA Jim
 
Your analysis is exactly correct, Geno. I'm about 1/2 way through adding in every
flip side for all the major ARSA artists, but I haven't gotten to Marvin yet, hence
the "haziness". For the future, not to worry - I deal with database issues like this
every day. And new ARSA db additions will often result in me doing some extra
research work for those artists, while I'm "in the neighborhood".    -Jim
Dec 13, 09 Marvin Gaye "Come Get To This/Distant Lover" Tamla 54241 Geno Rice
 
According to Wikipedia, the above was the second single from "Let's Get It On", but
the ARSA database has the two songs on separate singles, with no matching flip
sides.  WDAS has "Distant Lover/flip" as their #21 for 1973-12-18, so I put in
"Come Get To This" as the flip side, following Wikipedia.  I believe ARSA's
"Distant Lover" (Tamla 54253) is the live version which was released in 1974 -- if
you agree we should add "(Live)" to the title of 54253, and add a separate "Distant
Lover" as the flip side of 54241.

Dec 1, 09 WJJD SURVEY POSTINGS Ben E. McCoy
 
thanks Gary for the reply. understood now it is, the situation faced with the
original postings.
one suggestion to try BEFORE scanning in survey hardcopies that are actually much
smaller than standard page-size:
try enlarging the original hardcopy to a much larger page-size via a photoshop
program, then scan THAT copy into your system memory for downloading same... it's
always worked for me in the past.
however, as i said before, trying to enlarge a less-than-standard page-sized
downloaded survey image only yields an image where the chart listings are merely
jumbled pixels and thus, unreadable for printout purposes.
Dec 1, 09 RE: WHOOPS - WRONG CALL LETTERS, RIGHT STATION! Gary Pfeifer
 
 Ben,

   I'm the one who's been uploading the WJJD surveys.  The images of the surveys
I've uploaded are the only ones I have - there aren't any larger or better quality
images in my possession.  If anyone has better quality images, please feel free to
upload.
Nov 30, 09 WHOOPS - WRONG CALL LETTERS, RIGHT STATION! Ben E. McCoy
 
gee whiz, Gang, most sorry about the calls mixup...
meant to say i have been having downloaded image/printout
problems for surveys posted for "W-J-J-D for Greater Chicago", circa mid-1950's.
that's WJJD-AM, and somehow all the call letters lately have gotten me tongue-tied
due to the onset of the Christmas rush blues  - at least for me.
thanks Geno for helping me set things straight here.
Nov 30, 09 WJJD not WWDJ Geno Rice
 
Please guys, WWDJ was a short lived top 40 station in NYC in the early seventies --
WJJD was a heritage rocker in Chicago.  To add some content to my rant, after the
demise of its top 40 format, WWDJ was for some 30 years all religious; recently it
went all right-wing talk, with new calls WNYM.
Nov 30, 09 POSTSCRIPT - WWDJ SURVEYS Ben E. McCoy
 
BTW, Roy: if it could be arranged, i would be glad to
send you a copy of a printed-out survey version from my end so you could personally
see the difficulty of the too-small-that-are-posted WWDJ download images i am
dealing with.

thanks, ben.
Nov 30, 09 WWDJ SURVEYS LARGE ENOUGH? Ben E. McCoy
 
Roy,
although, at my end, the WWDJ - Chicago surveys may appear just barely large enough
to read the fine print (individual listings, etc.) by extremely close examination, i
have been unable to reproduce them -- printwise... printing-out ONLY the 'exact'
size of the downloaded (clicked-on) version (then double-clicked for largest size
possible), renders a copy that is unreadable -- except, maybe, my microscope. and
when i have tried enlarging the WWDJ survey images myself via photo enhancing
programs and then print those revised versions out, the copies produced are merely
jumbled pixled chart listings.
in other words, if that SECOND CLICK for the ARSA download image could yield a much
larger PAGE-size image, then the subsequent printouts for my collection would be
legible.
i hope this better explains the sitution!
Nov 27, 09 RE: WWDJ SURVEY IMAGES Roy Ballard
 
ben, are u sure u mean wwdj? the five wwdj surveys appear clear and very legible to
me. ...   roy
Nov 26, 09 WWDJ SURVEY IMAGES Ben E. McCoy
 
this might be an improbable question:
is there ANY way to have the WWDJ surveys IMAGES ENLARGED
to the point where they are easily readable on one's
computer screen and/or can be printed out legibly???
Note: clicking on the images BARELY enlarges the
survey to no real significant effect... have tried to increase size on downloaded
images for print-out, but result is jumbled-pixels GIGO!
this station's historic importance as an early "Pop Music" broadcaster in the
mid-1950's would be best served by
providing clearly discernable survey images as part of ARSA's national archives.
