Apr 2, 14 RE4: Message to Mr. Lee Tucker Lee Tucker

Thanks Gary.  Not sure what happened; must have been a senior moment.  Oh well,
moving on and my thanks to you, Tim Warden and the rest of the ARSA gang for
providing and maintaining this great website which has and will continue to provide
me countless hours of enjoyment.  Back next week.  
Apr 1, 14 RE2: More KLIV surveys Gary Pfeifer
  Thanks for your contributions, Rich!  Looking forward to seeing more.
Apr 1, 14 RE3: Message to Mr. Lee Tucker Gary Pfeifer

   No problem.  It's happened to me a number of times also.  We all very much
appreciate your efforts and know you strive for total accuracy.  When processing a
large number of surveys on a daily basis as you do, something is bound to slip
through eventually.  Fortunately, we have great, keen eyed users here at ARSA to
help us maintain accuracy and most corrections can be made quickly and painlessly. 
Thanks again!

Thanks for the note, I only have a handful of KLIV charts left to upload but I'll
hold off until you've finished with yours.

Apr 1, 14 RE: More KLIV surveys Rich Stivers
Gary and Jeff:

I'm getting back to my KLIV survey postings after finishing a project that was
taking up most of my free time. Thanks for letting us know which KLIV surveys you
already have. After a quick look, I have most of the KLIV surveys from July 1963
thru June 1965. I will try to post 1-2 each week, and maybe more time permitting.

Apr 1, 14 RE2: Message to Mr. Lee Tucker

Let me begin by apologizing for an apparent error I made a few days ago when
contributing the controversial WFIL survey under discussion.  Thanks for catching
it Craig for I, too, have and always will strive for complete accuracy when
contributing ANY survey I upload to ARSA.  Since Gary has fixed the problem and I
have deleted the image from my hard drive, I cannot research my contribution in
order to ascertain exactly how the error occurred.

The WFIL surveys I have and will continue to contribute to ARSA have been collected
through the years mainly from 3 websites in addition to anywhere else they may pop
up on the internet.  My best guess is that either I or the website from where I
downloaded the survey incorrectly paired a front and back side of the WFIL survey
under discussion or, more likely, I incorrectly dated the offending survey in my
hard drive files when I downloaded it and failed to catch it when I contributed it
to ARSA. Whatever the case may be, rest assured that I will continue to strive for
complete accuracy in ANY survey that I contribute to ARSA and I welcome any
feedback when one falls through the cracks.  ARSA is a truly great website and I
look forward to contributing  many more surveys when I get back in town next week. 
Apr 1, 14 Thanks, Craig! K.A. Scott
And a big thanks from me to Craig for all his CHUM chart data for 1977 and 1978! 
Thanks to his recent efforts, ARSA now has CHUM chart data entered for *almost* the
entire run, from '57 to '86.  (We've still yet to get the actual charts for parts of
'75 and '76 ... but I know Craig is working on it!)

  It took the new images of the July 3, 1967 survey without any problem!  Tim must
have corrected that old glitch.  Thanks Tim!
Apr 1, 14 RE: Message to Mr. Lee Tucker Gary Pfeifer
  Craig & Lee,

    It does appear that the WFIL survey submitted as July 24, 1967 is actually the
Jul 3, 1967 survey.  I'll revise the date to July 3 and remove the images.  I'll
probably have to wait a day or two to insert the correct images as an ARSA glitch
has the tendency of retaining the old images for a short period of time even after
new ones are uploaded.

  Craig, I am not quite as stringent about only posting surveys on the dates that
correspond with the dates on the survey as I had been.  This was my own methodology
of keeping things straight and making the workload manageable.  Plus, I thought the
surveys would have more meaning that way too.  Recently, however, in order to avoid
duplicating effort and overlapping with the great number of surveys contributed by
Lee, I've been adding many as I prepare them rather than waiting for the
corresponding date.  And a big THANK YOU to Lee for tremendous efforts in
submitting such a large number of surveys consistently.

  I can also vouch for the thoroughness and accuracy of any surveys and/or other
information supplied by Craig.  He has been a great contributor also. 
Apr 1, 14 Message to Mr. Lee Tucker Craig Pucci
Dear Mr. Tucker,
   I noticed that the WFIL hit parade of July 24, 1967 that you contributed to ARSA
sadly had the incorrect chart data of July 3, 1967. I submitted the correct data to
Mr. Pfeifer because he has the privilege to add and update hit parade data whereas
I cannot directly submit to ARSA unless I submit hit parade data thru Mr. Pfeifer.
   Even though I appreciate the fact that Mr. Pfeifer takes the time to analyze and
have the hit parades that I submit posted to ARSA, he will only post hit parades on
the day of the dated hit parade. For example, if I were to submit a hit parade of
September 5, 1966, I must submit this hit parade that day or the night before. 
   More importantly, if you need help posting hit parades to ARSA where the date
does not greatly matter, I will be ultra-happy to submit any hit parade to you so
that I may ease your workload.
   If you feel comfortable with my offer, please notify me at
whenever you can because your cooperation will be to the utmost appreciated. If you
have any doubts about my accuracy of hit parades, please contact Mr. Pfeifer and as
a second reference, Mr. Scott so that they may verify the accuracy of my hit parade
                      Thank you and God bless,
Feb 9, 14 Looking for 1964-1965 WLOF (Orlando FL) Surveys Dennis Chapman
Growing up in Orlando, FL, I was a rabid listener of WLOF Channel 95 - a great AM
station that broke many records not played anywhere else and it inspired me to
pursue a career in radio.  Arsa has a complete 60's collection of WLOF surveys from
Oct 1965 on, but I'm looking to complete them for all of 1964 and Jan-Sept. 1965. 
Anyone able to assist? 
Feb 7, 14 RE2: More KLIV surveys J. A. Theroux
Thank you, Gary!  I understand it may take a while before I can get access to enter
my surveys so I will be patient.
Feb 5, 14 RE: More KLIV surveys Gary Pfeifer

   I've gone through all the KLIV surveys I was supplied and uploaded all that were
not already in the database; therefore, please feel free to enter the 1970 surveys
you've acquired.  No duplication of effort but I appreciate your asking first! 
Thank you in advance for your efforts!
Feb 5, 14 More KLIV surveys J. A. Theroux
To Gary and Rich Stivers,

I've run across a source for KLIV surveys not yet posted in ARSA, the period is
from April to December of 1970.  They were published in a local newspaper, I have
scans of these surveys and I would like to upload them into the ARSA database (I
will email Tim Warden for access rights).  I know you have a number of KLIV surveys
to enter into the database, I just want to make sure you don't already have these so
that I'm not doubling your efforts.

Feb 3, 14 WFIL hit parades Craig Pucci
Dear Sir or Madam:
   Does anyone have an image or images of the March 4, 1968 hit parade of WFIL of
Philadelphia, PA? I seek this particular one for quite some time and I cannot find
this hit parade anywhere. If so, please notify me whenever you can because your
cooperation will be tremendously appreciated. My email address is

                                  Thank you and God bless,

Jan 31, 14 RE: The Charts for the last week of January 1964 Gary Pfeifer
  Interestingly, Bobby Vee, of all people, seems to be one of the very first to
react with his obviously Beatles influenced "I'll Make You Mine" hitting the WABC
and CKLW charts as early as Jan. 28, 1964.
Jan 30, 14 The Charts for the last week of January 1964 James White
A glance at charts for this week across the country tell quite a story:   The
Beatles were hitting the charts and moving up quickly.  The British Invasion had
begun, but most of the other artists on those charts didn't have a clue as to what
was in store over the next several months.  By the end of March, the Beatles held
down the top 5 spots nationally, and Peter & Gordon, The Dave Clark 5, The Rolling
Stones, Chad & Jeremy, Gerry & The Pacemakers, Hermans' Hermits, The Searchers, and
more, were about to take over the American airways. 
Jan 18, 14 Re: Herman's Hermits or Earl-Jean? J. A. Theroux

Thanks for not only taking the trouble to respond to my 2 cents but also for
editing the charts with I'm Into Something Good based on my suggestion. Thanks also
to you and John Frank for providing all these great surveys, I do appreciate it a

Jan 15, 14 Re: Herman's Hermits or Earl-Jean? Gary Pfeifer

    All the surveys you've indicated that are associated with the Herman's
Hermits/Earl-Jean question are part of an enormous treasure trove of surveys very
graciously provided by John Frank.  I am slowly going thru these and adding ones
not already in the system.  Although some have survey images included, the majority
do not and are just a pre-typed up survey. All the KLIV, KIMN, and WSAI surveys
you've mentioned do not have images available.  So there is no way right now to be
100% certain.  

   However, based on the fact that the Herman's Hermits version doesn't start
showing on US charts as Pick Hits until September, I am very inclined to believe
that the July/August already charted version is indeed the Earl-Jean song.
Considering the herculean task John took on in typing up all the surveys he
provided, there are bound to be typos/errors - I've caught a few other also.  Since
these all come from John's surveys, it's likely to be an recurring error.  I'll edit
them to Earl-Jean.

  And John, if you're reading this, first, again MANY THANKS for all the surveys
you've generously shared with us! It's going to keep me busy for a while adding
them! :)  Also, if you have any way of confirming or disproving the above
assumptions, please let us know.

The previous post is by me, Jeff Theroux.  For some reason my name did not get
associated with it.
