Jan 30, 15 American Bandstand Top 10 Charts Robin Ore
Does anyone know anything about the American Bandstand weekly Top 10 charts?  Dick
Clark used to have a Top 10 chartboard, and he would do a countdown, pulling out
the slats reviewing each record, maybe only playing the # 1 record.  I don't think
they did a countdown every week.  I do remember seeing a Beatles countdown back in
1964 or 65, and one in particular in 1970 had Led Zeppelin's Immigrant Song at # 1,
which it did not achieve on Billboard, Cash Box, or Record World.  Would be nice to
have these...
Jan 28, 15 The term, Hit Parade. Tom Mac
Or, "Your Hit Parade."

That seems to refer to pre Beatle hits but not after that.

After that it was just, "hits."
Jan 28, 15 The Beatles Hits on KFXM 5-22-64 Tom Mac
Also called Beatles bunch.

41 Beatle songs in total including "Cry For A Shadow."
Jan 23, 15 Re: WIXY's gone Bananas Gary Pfeifer
 Geno - For ease of matching the survey songs with the database, I would suggest you
input the songs with the proper title.   Please include the image and add an
explantion like you did here about the inclusion of the word banana in many of the
song titles on the actual survey.  Thanks.
Jan 23, 15 WIXY's gone Bananas Geno Rice
As I'm adding new WIXY surveys taken from the Cleveland newspaper, I've come across
two weeks where the station held a strange contest: 1973-08-24 and 1973-10-12. Many
of the song titles have been changed to include the word "Banana." Should I add
these two weeks, inserting the correct titles into ARSA, and leave the images off?
Or should I include the images with an explanation?
Jan 21, 15 "When I'm With You" - Sheriff Gary Pfeifer
  Thanks for bringing this to our attention, Paul. And thank you to Kenn for taking
care of it!  Been a VERY busy day - this is my first time on the net today.
Jan 21, 15 When I'm With You K.A. Scott
I managed to fix this -- should be all sorted now!

Noticed that in addition to Sheriff's 6-year-old "When I'm With You", some of those
same surveys (the ones from WKTI Milwaukee) also have the 5-year-old recording "Red
Red Wine" by UB40 charting, AND the 7-year-old single "Tempted" by Squeeze.  All at
the same time!

Jan 21, 15 "When I'm With You" - Sheriff Paul H.
Hi Gary,

Some of the late 1988 surveys have this song sorting with the 1983 original release
instead of the big hit 1988/89 re-issue.

Jan 4, 15 Miracles - Come 'Round Here Gary Pfeifer
  The 1965 WIFE survey which is linked to this Miracles song is a John Frank
prepared survey where there is no survey available to confirm the entry. I am
almost certain tho that this was an inadvertent error which occurred during the
typing up of the survey.  Without the survey image, we can't be 100% certain what 
Miracles song was included.  However, reviewing all the Miracles songs that charted
in 1965, the only one that fits the June 1965 timeframe is "Ooo Baby Baby".  

 Unless anyone has another suggestion (or until an image of the 6/27/65 WIFE survey
is found),  the entry on the WIFE survey will be changed to "Ooo Baby Baby" and the
release date of "Come 'Round Here" will be revised to 1966.

   Thanks for the catch, Geno!
Jan 4, 15 Miracles - Come 'Round Here Geno Rice
Clarification to my previous comment: The Miracles' song is listed on the 1965 WIFE
survey as "I'm The One You Need", but according to Wikipedia, this song was
recorded on September 13, 1966.
Jan 4, 15 Miracles - Come 'Round Here Geno Rice
Hi Gary, the Miracles' 1966 single, "(Come 'Round Here) I'm The One You Need" is
wrongly dated 1965 as it is mysteriously linked to a 1965 WIFE survey which does
not list that song.
Dec 31, 14 RE: WGNG Pawtucket, RI Surveys Gary Pfeifer
 Hi James - Happy New Year and thanks for stopping by!  Hope you enjoy seeing the
WGNG surveys we've collected here.
Dec 30, 14 WGNG Pawtucket, RI Surveys James Melo
Hi all! Happy new year! I used to listen to WGNG in the early to mid seventies. I
used to collect their very colorful weekly surveys. It's a pity that I discarded
them sometime in the eighties. Thanks for all the good work.
Dec 27, 14 KOL Seattle Surveys Andre Skrastins
Thank you so much for occasionally posting a new (missing) KOL survey in your
archives. I check every few weeks to see if there's an update. I was a big fan of
KOL Seattle during the period 1965 to 1969, so it thrills me to find a "new" old
survey. -Andre S. 
Dec 24, 14 KLIV Surveys - June 1963 to June 1965 Rich Stivers
Just a reminder, I have 95% of the KLIV Surveys from June 1963 to June 1965. If
members can work on surveys other than these KLIV surveys, I can fill in most of
the gaps. I don't want to duplicate anyone's effort and vice versa. Now that I have
more time to devote to this, the surveys should be posted at a faster rate.

I want to thank all of the members here who are posting so many surveys. My fellow
DJ friends and I find this site invaluable in doing Oldies research.

Holiday Cheer,
Dec 18, 14 RE: WWRL surveys Gary Pfeifer
 Geno - Thank you very much for all your efforts in entering a tremendous number of
survey during this past year! Much appreciated! Enjoy your vacation and we'll use
that two week period to try and catch up with all the songs that need to be entered
into the database from the WWRL surveys. :)  Happy Holidays to you!
Dec 18, 14 WWRL surveys Geno Rice
Thanks for bearing with me while I input the rest of the 1969 WWRL surveys. I'm
slated to take a two-week vacation soon and I just want to finish 1969 before I go.
I have plenty more from 1970-1972 to input when I get back. Happy Holidays everyone!
Dec 7, 14 RE: 1960's K.C and Chicago music surveys CARY LINIGER
They could be worth quite a lot. I sold a late 60's WHB 40 Star Survey on EBAY for
about $62.00.
Dec 6, 14 1960's K.C and Chicago music surveys James Harriman
Growing up in K.C. in the 1960's I acquired many whb and kudl radio surveys. My best
friend was from Illinois and gave me wls surveys and a couple from Rockford, Il.
There are all from 1966-1970 ranging from excellent condition to fair condition.
Probably have 50 of them. Are they worth anything? I would like to sell them!
Nov 23, 14 RE: Statistics page question Gary Pfeifer
 Paul - I had reported that glitch to Tim previously.  I'm sure it's on his to-do
list when he gets the time.
