NOTES:
    The printed survey shows "Hair" by the Cowsills at both the 
    No. 2 and No. 4 positions.  However, by referring to the 
    prior week's column in the March 30, 1969 survey, it was 
    determined that Tommy Roe's "Dizzy" should have been at
    the No. 4 position.

    The song titles and artists shown above are presented exactly
    as they are shown on the printed survey.  Any typos, spelling 
    errors and/or other anomalies are as they appear on the printed 
    sheet.
