Thanks, Paul -- I corrected the entry.

The song "Country Trash" by Johnny Cash is currently shown as "Country Train" by
mistake in the database.

Paul

Figured out how to correct the tracking for this survey and it's now shown as KDWB
630 AM.  Thanks for the catch!

Paul

Welcome back.  I don't know how this survey ended up tracking to KDWB-FM 101.3-FM
when I entered it into the ARSA data base way back when as I have entered all of
the 60's KDWB surveys as 630 AM.  I haven't been able to figure how to correct this
so I guess the ARSA gurus will have to correct it.  Again, welcome back.

This survey is listed incorrectly.  It should be for KDWB-AM 630, not KDWB-FM 101.3.

Thanks Gary,  I suspected it might be something like that.

 I believe the root of the problem is that Paul Revere's "Louie Louie" was
originally released in 1963 and "Louis Go Home" in 1964. Being a 1965 survey, the
matching is looking for the best match in the closest time period and finding
"Louie Go Home" one year prior.  I can correct this entry but Tim will need to
address the underlying cause.

Tim/Gary,

It happened again...on this survey, Louie, Louie redirected to Louie - Go Home.  I
also noticed another KEWB survey and a KLIV survey from 1965 that have the same
issue.

Thanks, Jeff -- I've corrected it.

Gary or Tim, for some reason, the entry for Paul Revere & The Raiders' Louie, Louie
is directing to Louie - Go Home.

Thanks,
Jeff

Tim,

That's the problem. Nobody plans on kicking the bucket :)

It happens to the best of us, without notice.  I won't get more morbid than that.

There are also. Other non-death issues which have brought down many an online
project without notice.  We don't always control our own fate even when we own all
the factors.

I understand your goals and agree with them.  Perhaps not so much the timeline :)

Thanks, Tim!

The new matching engine is a little more strict on years.  Some of the songs in the
database are off by a year.  E.g. the song was released in late 1960, but in the
database, the release date is 1961.  I'm cleaning those up as I encounter them.

By the way, I don't know if anyone else has commmented on it yet but I like the new
green checkmark/red dot system for survey entries.
Aug 18, 14 KEWB San Francisco 1960-11-19 / KEWB ( San Francisco, California ) J. A. Theroux
 
I had several red dots on this KEWB survey, some of which I was able to fix by
double-checking the spelling of the artist's name and looking in the ARSA database
for correct title spellings (who knew that the new Elvis single was spelled "Are
You Lonesome To-Night?"...well OK, I sure didn't).

But having said and done all that, I still have four titles on this survey with red
dots, for the life of me I don't know why.

Hi Derek,

Sorry if I didn't notice your asking about the site's legacy a year ago.  You bring
up a good point which is something I have indeed been thinking about.  Mind you, I
have no intentions of kicking the bucket any time soon.  Anyway, it is on my list
of things to research for how best to assure the site continues long after we are
gone.  I want to make sure it is done in a non-monetized, non-commercialized way
that only benefits the public.

Cheers,

Tim

Thanks Kenn, appreciated.

I have lots kore CIHI charts, but I've been asking for over a year about what the
legacy situation is without any response, and those parts of my messages just being
ignored. and I don't feel like spending the time, to just have the work vanish
without some plans in place.

Something I think every contributor here deserves to know, so I've made the issue
public.

Hi Derek...

Thanks for taking the time to follow up on this.  Always nice to have someone to
help out with those hard-to-confirm mystery singles...

Hope there are still a few more CIHI surveys left in your files to be inputted. 
Always enjoy seeing Canadian surveys from the 80s, and the semi-obscure (and
sometimes regional) hits they contain.  I've really enjoyed your contributions to
date!


Cheers,

- Kenn.

Wish I had of known, wouldn't have bothered him.

While you are here Tim. I have a question.

What's the legacy situation of this site incase something happens to you suddenly.

There's been a lot of hard work done by a lot of people, and I've been around the
internet since '91, and I've seen and been involved in more than too many projects
that suddenly vanished and the hundreds of hours of work by people lost, all
because something happened to the person in charge, or the business of the site and
everything lost.

So what's the legacy setup here? So everyone knows what to expect.

Hi Derek -- thanks for your follow up on this item.  I had also contacted Paul July
26 who informed me it was the same recording, but that he didn't have label/catalog
info.  Glad he was able to get the Princess part -- I'll update the song entry with
the label.

I also contacted 2 other gentlemen in regard to the song and it's different
versions, but never heard back.

Thanks again for the help on this rarity.

Tim
