Jul 21, 14 RE: Ray Charles Modern Sounds in Country Gary Pfeifer
 Thanks for the info, Jeff.  I see Volume 1 was released in April 1962 and Volume 2
in October 1962.  I'll do some cleaning up on it.
Jul 21, 14 Ray Charles Modern Sounds in Country & Western Music Volumes 1 J. A. Theroux
Hi Gary,

When I was inputting the KEWB chart today I had to check the album charts for the
correct title of the Ray Charles album and discovered there were two volumes of his
C&W work!  So I had to figure out which one was the correct one and after digging
around on the internet I found that Volume 2 wasn't released until October 1962,
but I also noted there are several charts in ARSA from before then linking to the
Volume 2 LP. I just thought you'd like to know about this.

I'm sorry to hear this. It's an excellent resource. Any future ones I input will be
in text format only.
Jul 17, 14 WPGC Surveys Gary Pfeifer
   This is very important.  We no longer have permission from the administrator of
the amandfmmorningside website to use the WPGC survey images from that site on
ARSA.  All WPGC images obtained from that website have been recently removed from
ARSA.  Use of a text file of the survey is fine as are WPGC survey images obtained
from elsewhere. Everyone please refrain from using any images from

  Thank you!
Jul 16, 14 RE4: 40,000... Just a shot away... 0
Hi Kenn

Thanks for the kind words.  The reason I decided to go ahead and input #40,000 was
that it was 6:00 AM local time and rather than wait around for someone to input
#40,000, I decided to go ahead and do it so we could all continue with our daily
contributions with #40,000 a done deal. I have stepped up my daily contributions
lately as we sold our home and will be moving shortly which will probably put me
off line for 4-6 weeks in mid September-October.  Thanks again and please keep the
Canadian surveys coming, especially the 80's

Cheers -  Lee      
Jul 16, 14 40,000 Surveys! Rick Hy
Congratulations to Tim, Gary and all of the ARSA contributors. This site is a treat
for me on two levels. I check every day to see what new surveys have been added.
And, I enjoy contributing those charts from my collection which often trigger
memories as I type in a certain title of a song that brings back a memory or two. 
Thanks to Gary for that last WKBW (Buffalo) survey as I didnít have it in my
collection and not in the station playlist form presented.  
I also have a special WKBW survey that may be appropriate for the 50,000 survey
celebration  (especially since WKBW was often called the 50,000 watt juke box).
Around that number will do just as well in case someone else has something special
planned.  In any case , onward to 50,000.
Jul 15, 14 RE5: 40,000... Just a shot away... J. A. Theroux
Congratulations on 40,000 surveys, and thanks to everyone for making this site so
awesome! On to 50,000...
Jul 15, 14 RE4: 40,000... Just a shot away... K.A. Scott
Oh, and thanks to Rick Hy!  (Knew I missed at least one regular...)  
Jul 15, 14 RE3: 40,000... Just a shot away... K.A. Scott
Lee, you've been inputting a LOT lately, so it's only fitting you input survey
#40,000 -- congratulations!

This site's an incredible resource, and I'd like to say thanks again to the people
who make it that way, especially site regulars Gary, Tim, Lee, Geno, Craig, Ronald,
J.A., Tracy, Cary and anyone I may have inadvertently missed.  Can't wait to see who
will get to input survey #50,000!


- Kenn.  

Jul 15, 14 RE2: 40,000... Just a shot away... Gary Pfeifer
  Another major milestone!  Thanks, Lee, for stepping up and selecting a most
appropriate survey for #40,000!!  

  Thanks for Tim, Kenn, Lee, Rick, Tracy, Geno, Ronald, Cary, Roy and everyone else
who's ever contributed a survey!  Also big thanks for those who may not upload
surveys directly, but who have graciously supplied survey copies/images and allowed
me to upload - especially Eric, John, Craig and Robin.

  Onward to 50K!
Jul 15, 14 RE: 40,000... Just a shot away... Lee Tucker
Well, somebody had to input #40,000 so I guess I'll step up since I notice that Gary
quit submitting once the count reached 39,999 and remembered that he was reluctant
to input #20,000 way back when.  Wow, 40,00 surveys and over 100,000 individual
songs; what an amazing site.

I've held this one back for awhile just in case it fell to me to input #40,000 as I
feel it's very appropriate to have this milestone be a Tucson, AZ radio station
where Las Solanas is based.  When I stumbled across this one, I also noticed that
Tim Warden input several of these KIKX surveys way back when ARSA was founded so I
feel that it's also appropriate to have this milestone be represented by a survey
wit a connection to where Tim was directly involved.

Congratulations and thanks to Tim, Gary, the ARSA gang, and all contributors for
this incredible milestone, site and data base as it has provided me several hours
of pure guilty pleasure since I stumbled across it in 2010.  It's was an incredible
idea to set up a site to preserve radio surveys and history and this site speaks for
itself.  Thanks again to all and onward to 50,000! 
Jul 14, 14 40,000 Ronald Marshall
Congrates to you to get to the 40,000 mark  
Jul 14, 14 40,000... Just a shot away... Tim Warden
I expect that by tomorrow we will have passed the 40,000 mile marker.  Today alone
about 40 new surveys were added.  It's amazing -- when I put this site together in
2004, I never dreamt it would develop to such a rich collection of surveys.  I'm
particularly excited to see some of the new soul surveys being added.  And the base
of songs -- well over 100,000!  My thanks to all of you for making this real and a
special thanks to Gary who was willing to help out from the start and has probably
worn his fingers down to nubs typing in all those charts.

Jul 3, 14 RE: top songs K.A. Scott
After you've generated a Top Songs chart, just go to the button labelled "Help" in
the lower left corner.  That will give you a summary!

I believe it's explained in the help screens.

Just wondering what the formula is for ranking the top songs

Jun 24, 14 Survey Additions Gary Pfeifer
  Surveys are being added at an unprecedented rate recently and we are fast
approaching 40,000!  I want to express my thanks and gratitude to all our dedicated
survey preparers and uploaders!!  All your contributions and hard work make this
website great!!

  A couple of gentle reminders when adding surveys to the database:

  1. Please don't forget to include all the Hitbounds, Pick Hits, Albums, etc.

  2. If both sides of a single are listed on the survey, please add each song on a
separate line so that both songs are included in the database.  The same holds true
when more than one artist is shown on the survey for the same song.  Please enter
each on its own line.

  Thanks much!

May 29, 14 RE2: WLLL Lynchburg, Va: contribute Top 40s Robin Ore

Thanks much.  I'll shoot you an email with images of the 2, and for the others I'll
type them up into your proper format and you can upload them.  Please email me back
your format.

Super Duper!!

--Robin in the Hood
May 29, 14 RE2: WLLL Lynchburg, Va: contribute Top 40s Gary Pfeifer

    You can send the images of the 1969/70 WLLL surveys to the email address I
provided. As for the others, I have no problem uploading them for you if you type
them up - however, you will need to make sure they are prepared in the proper
format, or else I would likely need to retype them again. I can send you an example
in email.

  If you'd like to upload yourself, you'll need to send an email to the aite
administrator, Tim Warden ( and request access.  Please be
aware that Tim is sometimes very occupied with real life and takes awhile to get
around to doing this.  Uploading the surveys is fairly easy and there are several
ways to do so.  They can be entered directly into the database line by line, or if
prepared in one of several prescribed formats, they are easily "auto-filled" into
the database.  There are a number of techniques you'll need to be aware of in
certain situations and those are covered in the help files you'll then see.

  Your choice, please let me know how you'd prefer to proceed.
