Jul 30, 14 RE3: CKOC Charts Lee Tucker
 
Peter

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.

Peter,

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

   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 picresize.com

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?


Cheers,

- Kenn.
Jul 27, 14 WCOL Columbus RE: 1968-07-01 / WCOL ( Columbus, Ohio ) Lee Tucker
 
Hi Tim

My copy of the image for this survey is also a little blurry but after looking at
it closer, I now believe the survey listing was "1000 Faces" by "1000 Faces" rather
than Long Faces and have edited the survey to reflect this.  In 1968, there an
obscure Psych-Garage Band called The Thousand Faces who release an obscure single
Titled "A Thousand Faces" on Era 3197 and now I believe this to be the song listed
on this survey.  I've attached an image of this 45 as Image #2 for this survey for
you to view and see what you think. Hope this helps and sorry for the extra work.

Cheers - Lee

Finally posted my first survey at ARSA!  Yeah!

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

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.

Hi Lee,

I'm trying to research the obscure "Long Faces" entry.  On the scan for the survey,
it looks like the label might be A&M, but it's too blurry to be sure.  In any case,
I can't find any A&M single of that period that would match.  The only thing that
comes close would be Alice Long.  Would you happen to have an original of the scan
that you could confirm the label?  Even better, does anyone have a WCOL from the
previous weeks that might confirm whether or not there is an error?

Thanks!

I agree with both of you, Tim and Gary -- this seems like a legit, if ridiculously
obscure release.  Let's add it to the database and hope we can get the label/cat#
info to add at a later date.
Jul 26, 14 KFXM San Bernardino RE: 1964-12-05 / KFXM ( San Bernardino, California ) Gary Pfeifer
 
 Tim,

   I've spent considerable time over the past couple of weeks trying to track down
this Spartans track and only came up with the same references you cited.  As it
seems fairly certain that this was a legitimate release, suggest you add it in the
database without the label/number for the time being.
Jul 26, 14 KFXM San Bernardino 1964-12-05 / KFXM ( San Bernardino, California ) Tim Warden
 
Here's another Challenger for you!

From the Tiger Touts of Lee's KFXM 12/05/64 survey we have Mr. Moto '64 listed by
"Spartans".  It's apparently Surf music and not to be confused with Jeff Barry's 
alias The Spartans of 1962. I have not been able to find a listing or image of the
song on the web, but there are mentions, such as this one:
www.reverbcentral.com/reviews/c/challengers7715.html.  There's also this mention:
www.pjmoto.com/specialty/vintage.php

It would seem to be an earlier issue of the same recording reissued a few months
later by The Challengers called "Mr. Moto '65".

So what do you think?  Shall we create a new entry for a new group "The Spartans"
and add the song without label/catalog until such time as a copy pops up for
reference?

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.

Thanks,
Jeff

Hi Kenn, 

     Thanks for the info. I Bet you are right about it being that Johnny Thunder
tune. The summer of 64 I listened to CKOC while I was off from college. Keep me
honest, I appreciate it. 
Jul 20, 14 CKWX Vancouver RE: 1959-08-31 / CKWX ( Vancouver, British Columbia ) K.A. Scott
 
It's definitely "Chuck Berry Is On Top".  The CKWX survey gives the album title as
"Chuck Berry", but also lists the catalogue number as QUALITY V 1641 -- which is
the Canadian cat. no, for the "Chuck Berry Is On Top" LP.  I'll go ahead and make
the switch!

Cheers,

- Kenn.

Jul 20, 14 KDEO San Diego RE: 1961-09-08 / KDEO ( San Diego, California ) Gary Pfeifer
 
  Looks like the survey preparers or printers mixed some things up. The Spotlight
Albums are actually singles and the Wax To Watch are albums.  Being that these
errors were already made, I'm guessing that Del Shannon's single "So Long Baby" got
caught up in the confusion - being properly placed under Wax To Watch but with all
the other albums.  Treat it as a single only.

  So what should have been the #1 album?  I'm guessing they switched it with the
No. 1 under Spotlight Albums (but actually the new singles) of Dinah Washington's
"September In The Rain", which was both a single and an album.  
Jul 20, 14 KDEO San Diego 1961-09-08 / KDEO ( San Diego, California ) Tim Warden
 
The number 1 hit album on this survey is "So Long, Baby", which was released as a
single in 1961. The song apparently was never release on an album stateside. Any
suggestions? Should we leave the entry unmatched?
Jul 20, 14 CKWX Vancouver 1959-08-31 / CKWX ( Vancouver, British Columbia ) Tim Warden
 
Hi Kenn,

Any idea about the "Chuck Berry" album entry?  That date corresponds to "Berry Is
On Top", but before I change, would like your opinion.

Tim
Jul 20, 14 CKOC Hamilton 1964-07-17 / CKOC ( Hamilton, Ontario ) K.A. Scott
 
Hi Rick:

If I remember correctly, the CKOC charts you've been entering are from your
handwritten song-title-only chart transcriptions.  Thanks for saving 'em all these
years!

For the entry at #54, "More Move", do you think your entry could have read "More
Love"?  If so, this would probably make this entry Johnny Thunder's "More More More
Love Love Love" which was charting at this exact same time just across the border in
New York state.

Let me know if this seems plausible to you!

Cheers,

- Kenn.

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
www.amandfmmorningside.com

  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
