WKDA FM 103.3
NASHVILLE’S STEREO ROCK

Cover:
Peace On Earth
Open somebody’s mind for
            Christmas
Note: Read the survey for the rest if you wish

Survey notes:
Labels in (parentheses)

Chart movement: 
Songs:
These songs move up after moving down previous week:
“Me & Mrs. Jones” (7-9-6); “Ventura Highway” (2-un-7)
Albums: 
Not much movement (it is Christmas, after all):
1 change in top 10, 4 unnumbered albums off chart

Song notes cont:
(Un) 11. released as a single. KDF did play it with lead-in
“Boy With A Moon & Star On His Head”, same 
order as on album.
(Un) 30. http://www.las-solanas.com/arsa/singles_charts.php?hs=24732
It was featured in “American Graffiti”, but that wasn’t released
until Aug ’73.

Album note cont:
NS #4 ...BEFORE 2ND WEEK IN JANUARY”
  O’Hara didn’t quite meet the deadline:
Released 5/30 (US), 6/22 (UK),
which I presume is the reason its next
appearance is NM #4 (again) June 2.
