Jul 25, 16 RE: Home Sweet Home - Motley Crue Gary Pfeifer
Got it corrected. Thanks, Paul! 
Jul 25, 16 Home Sweet Home - Motley Crue Paul H.
Just a quick correction for the database.

Under the 1985 version of "Home Sweet Home" by Motley Crue, there's one 1991 entry
that should be put under the "Home Sweet Home 1991" version.

You're welcome. I'm proud to be part of this great endeavor along with all the other
hard workers!
Jul 18, 16 RE: Survey dates need changing Gary Pfeifer
  Thanks Geno for the information and thanks, Kenn, for making the corrections
before I even saw them!

Good eye, Geno!  All have now been fixed.  Thanks for bringing these to our
attention -- and for your continuing tireless work on entering surveys!

Jul 14, 16 RE4: Technical question Joel Bernstein
Thanks Gary.
Jul 14, 16 RE3: Technical question Gary Pfeifer
 HA! I spoke too soon!  Just found on a Radio Insight discussion board that the
frequency of KYOR-AM was 1450.
Jul 14, 16 RE3: Technical question Gary Pfeifer
 Both of the stations have been added.  Like you, I was only able to find the
frequency of KYOR-FM and not of the AM station.  If the info is found at a later
time, we can add it then.
Jul 14, 16 RE2: Technical question Joel Bernstein
The AM station I want to add is WMNI 920 AM Columbus, Ohio
C&W format. The FM is already in the database.

The other station is KYOR in Blythe, Ca., an AM T40 station. Googling I have only
managed to find the FM frequency, although that is not in the ARSA database

Let me know if and when I will be able to add either or both of these surveys.
Jul 14, 16 RE: Technical question Gary Pfeifer
 Not sure if you'll be able to do it Joel, but if you provide us the station info,
either Kenn or I can get it set up for you. 

  Same goes for stations with an unknown frequency. There are a handful already in
the database.  If it won't allow you, let us know and it will be taken care of.
Jul 14, 16 RE: Technical question Joel Bernstein
And another one: Is there a way to add a station if I have the call letters and
town, but not the frequency?
Jul 14, 16 Technical question Joel Bernstein
How do I add an AM station to the database when an FM station with the same call
letters already exists (or vice versa)? I assume if I just put in the call letters
it will default to the existing band.
Jul 10, 16 RE: Error in chart data of WWIN 2/14/66 survey Gary Pfeifer
 Good catch, Joel.  Thanks!  The correction has been made. We strive to be as
accurate as possible and your alerting us to any errors spotted greatly aids in
accomplishing that goal.
Jul 10, 16 Error in chart data of WWIN 2/14/66 survey Joel Wagoner

The chart data for the 2/14/1966 WWIN survey lists "For You" by the Spellbinders as
being both #13 and #15.  The image of the survey shows #13 as being "Let's Try" by
the Dynamites.

By the way, I'm amazed at how accurate the chart data generally is in the ARSA
database, given the volume of data and the variability of input formats.

My best,
Jul 7, 16 RE6: Corrie En De Rekels K.A. Scott
*Joel's* entry.  Sorry about that Joel!  Anyway, it's now done.
Jul 7, 16 RE5: Corrie En De Rekels K.A. Scott
Yes, changing the name in the artist database was what I was thinking.  I'll make
the change and link up Josh's entry.
Jul 7, 16 RE4: Corrie En De Rekels Gary Pfeifer
 I'm in full agreement with you, Ken, in that the artists' names should be entered
as it appears on all, or the great majority of their records - in this instance:
Corry En De Rekels.  Of course, sometimes there are small variations on the
official releases and the listings on surveys can vary significantly.  Those would
just need to be modified when entering the survey to match the established artist
name in the database.

  I think it's a fairly easy fix too, Ken. If the name is edited in the Artist
database, I believe it will automatically change all the associated songs with it.
Is that the method you were thinking of, or is there an alternate way?
Jul 7, 16 RE3: Corrie En De Rekels K.A. Scott
Actually, the way the database is set up, it's not that hard to do.  Just waiting
for others to weigh in before any changes are made.


- Kenn.
Jul 7, 16 RE2: Corrie En De Rekels Joel Bernstein
I just tried changing their name in my most recently posted survey, and confirmed
that as things currently exist En De Rekels will not get a green checkmark. In
order to make En De Rekels compatible, you'll have to redo their entire entry.
You'll have to decide whether it's worth it.
