Aug 2, 14 RE3: CKOC Charts Tim Warden
Hi everyone, indeed the max file size you can upload for an image is 500KB. 
Normally, you should have seen an error message printed in red when the upload
failed.  If it failed quietly, I'll have to go under the hood and replace a fuse.
Jul 30, 14 RE3: CKOC Charts Lee Tucker

Let me also add my welcome aboard to Kenn & Gary's,  I had similar problems
uploading survey images to ARSA when I first started contributing surveys and Gary
was a big help getting me squared away as my scanned images were indeed much larger
than the 490kb he references.  Not sure what kind of programs you have available
but, after much trial and error, what works for me is to right-click on the image
and open it with Microsoft Picture Manager from where I can crop the image if
necessary and autocorrect it to add brightness and clarity if needed.  After saving
this, I then right-click on the image and open it with Paint where, if necessary, I
can resize the Pixels and reduce the image to less than the 490kb Gary references. 
Best of luck and again, welcome to a fantastic website.           
Jul 29, 14 RE2: CKOC Charts Gary Pfeifer

  Let me add my thanks to Kenn's for your survey contributions.  All are most

   As for the file size limit, through trial and error, I've narrowed it down a
maximum file size of about 490kb.  If you need to resize an image, an excellent
resource is
Jul 29, 14 RE: CKOC Charts K.A. Scott
Welcome aboard, Peter! Can't wait to see what CKOC stuff you have in store for us.

Note that if you've been trying to post your charts as JPEG files, there is a file
size limit -- though I'm not sure exactly what that limit is.  Tim, can you provide
some guidance here?


- Kenn.
Jul 27, 14 CKOC Charts Peter Maurin
Finally posted my first survey at ARSA!  Yeah!

Not all that difficult. Not without some issues though. The only issues I had

1. I uploaded the survey image, but it's not showing up.
2. How can I add the "New Music" to the survey? I see other CKOC charts include
that info. I just can't seem to find it. 

If anyone else collects or knows someone who collects CKOC charts and has some to
trade, please contact me. I have a ton to trade and would like to complete the set
as best I can. 

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.

Jul 17, 14 RE: WPGC Surveys Geno Rice
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.

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!
