Oct 6, 15 RE: WTAC Survey of 6/30/1966 Gary Pfeifer
 Hi Joel,

   Looks like I blundered on that one.  Will need to reput everything which I'll do
as soon as I have time.  Thanks for the catch!  
Oct 6, 15 WTAC Survey of 6/30/1966 Joel Wagoner
Hello, I just noticed that the survey for WTAC for June 30, 1966 includes a photo of
the correct survey for June 30, but the songs listed in the chart data are from the
survey of July 21, 1966.  Just thought that you'd want to know.

There is a small typo for the recent KACE chart additions...the state is misspelled
as Calirfornia, should be California.

 Hi Ed and welcome to ARSA!  Happy to have you here!  Thank you for your offer to
share some of your WBZ and WMEX surveys.  If you want, you can email me the survey
images at and I'll add the surveys if we don't already have them
or add the images if we just have a text version. Enjoy the website!

Sep 11, 15 RE: Hello Everyone! Gary Pfeifer
  Welcome aboard, Ted! Happy to see you here!  Thank you for all the charts you've
already shared with ARSA and those yet to come!
Sep 11, 15 Hello Everyone! Ted Hammond
I finally decided to create a profile. It will be a while before I try entering
charts, as I have been extremely busy. But I've watched the site for several years
and have contributed charts, and found other charts online that Gary has compiled.
I have watched many stations go from a handful of charts to over one hundred, and
others on their way to a much more significant presence. I've noticed that
Wikipedia articles about singles now sometimes cite radio station survey peaks now,
particularly WLS and CHUM. You have all done a great job in archiving this part of
History, and have a lot to be proud of. Hopefully, I can be a small part of that in
the future. Congratulations on currently having the equivalent of "well over a
thousand years" of radio station record surveys!
Sep 4, 15 RE3: Should KGMQ be KQMQ? Geno Rice
My trusty North American Radio-TV Station Guide copyright 1973 shows 93.1 FM in
Honolulu listed as KGMB-FM. There is one KGMB survey in ARSA dated 1972.
Sep 3, 15 RE: Should KGMQ be KQMQ? Gary Pfeifer
  Thanks, Kenn & Joel, for the additional info.  It appears that KGMQ changed call
letters to KQMQ sometime between Oct. 1974 and June 1976 then.  I haven't been able
to find anything pinpointing the date yet.  The surveys we have in the ARSA database
are properly identified as KGMQ then and no chnage is needed.
Sep 3, 15 RE3: Should KGMQ be KQMQ? Joel Wagoner
Interesting!  I lived in Honolulu from 1976 to 1980, and only remember "KQMQ".  The
change must have occurred before June, 1976.

I googled "KGMQ" before posting, and the first three pages or so of hits mentioned
no radio stations in Honolulu,  I then googled "KQMQ", found the Wikipedia article,
and decided to post.  After reading your reply, I googled "KGMQ-FM", and found
several hits that refer to a radio station in Honolulu up until (but no later than)
the mid-1970's.

I have fond memories of KQMQ in the late 1970's.  I once sent them a demo tape in
the hope of landing a job as an announcer, but was turned down.  Looking back over
the last 35 years, things worked out for the best.

Thanks for all that I learned from this exchange.

A quick google search turns up a December 15, 1973 Billboard article about
Honolulu's KGMQ (93 FM), a 1973 Arbitron ratings transcript for Hawaii featuring
KGMQ, and numerous other references.   

According to a 2009 article about the destruction of an historic Hawaii radio
tower, KGMQ eventually changed its call letters to KQMQ, although the article
doesn't say when this happened. 
Sep 3, 15 RE: Should KGMQ be KQMQ? Gary Pfeifer
 Thanks, Joel, for bringing this to our attention.  On the second survey images
associated with the 5/17/74 and 10/18/74 surveys, it sure looks like KGMQ in the
bottom right corner. The G and Q look very different.  However, Wikipedia shows
that KQMQ has been at 93.1 FM since 1967.  Does anyone else have any other info or
opinion on this before a change is made?
Sep 3, 15 Should KGMQ be KQMQ? Joel Wagoner
Hello, I see that you've recently added some surveys for a station that you identify
as "KGMQ" in Honolulu.  I believe that this station's call letters were "KQMQ". The
lettering on their surveys is difficult to read, so this would be an easy error to
Aug 18, 15 RE3: Delays Lee Tucker
Thanks. Site performance & response time were much improved this AM with just a
couple of minor delays experienced.
Aug 17, 15 RE2: Delays K.A. Scott
Got it.  Will alert Tim.
Aug 17, 15 RE: Delays Lee Tucker
Back to experiencing numerous lengthy delays this AM.
Aug 15, 15 Delays K.A. Scott
Yes, I encountered some problems briefly on Saturday morning, but then they cleared
up pretty quickly.  Let's keep an eye on this!
Aug 12, 15 RE3: Delays K.A. Scott
Site's been working delay-free for me today -- looks like things are fixed!
Aug 12, 15 RE2: Delays Lee Tucker
Don't know if it's because I was the only one contributing surveys at the time or if
Tim made some site adjustments, but site response and performance were outstanding
this AM!! No lengthy delays causing me to log off & reopen the site in order to
continue were experienced and response time was outstanding!!
