Jan 20, 17 RE: WQBR, Ypsilanti, Michigan Gary Pfeifer
 Hi Rob.  Thank you for your very kind offer to share some of your surveys!  If you
want to prepare and upload them yourself, you need to contact the ARSA
Adminstrator, Tim Warden, at and he will set you up.  Or you
can send images or photocopies to myself or another contributor and we'll get them
prepared and entered for you. Again, thanks for your willingness to share!

I've got a number of surveys from the Eastern Michigan University station WQBR from
the 1980s. How do I upload them?

Also, they were on 104.7 at the time...
Jan 9, 17 RE: WONE 1971 surveys Gary Pfeifer
Been corrected. Thanks!
Jan 9, 17 WONE 1971 surveys Joel Bernstein
The survey for WONE-AM dated 6/14/71, with Carole King at #1, should be in WONE-FM,
which was also in Dayton at the time. (Those call letters later moved to Akron).
WONE-AM was a C&W station in 1971.

Correction has been made to the WAMS survey.  Thanks!
Jan 8, 17 Error in Chart Data for WAMS of 1/8/1973 Joel Wagoner

The chart data for WAMS' survey of 1/8/1973 lists "The Relay" by The Who twice, at
#22 and #24.  The image of the survey shows "Keeper of the Castle" as #24.

Hope that the New Year is going well for everyone.

Jan 8, 17 KHJ 930 1979-1980 Geno Rice
There seems to be some date mix-ups regarding the individually printed KHJ surveys
and the ones included in the Survey of Hits. It's not clear what the printing
schedules were. I have a few more to add in the upcoming weeks and I hope I'll be
able to straighten things out. 

My intention is to make sure the charted songs keep to a typical bell curve of
increasing and decreasing chart positions.

Jan 4, 17 RE: KREM-1340 Paul H.
Frank, you are correct.  KREM (1340) was located in Spokane, not Seattle.  I've made
the correction.
Jan 4, 17 KREM-1340 frank merrill
Going to that website allows anybody here to research old radio station directories
"TO THE BEGINNING" - well, certainly to far, far earlier than any kind of survey
that will ever turn up.

I have found that website useful untold numbers of times.
Jan 4, 17 KREM 1340 frank merrill
Forget the "At part" I was referring to...that's email stuff which has nothing to do
with this.

After the dot com part, what's left is /index.html
Jan 4, 17 KREM revisited frank merrill
As posting web addresses seems disabled, I'll only put the part of its web address
here that PRECEDES the At part.

Everything by itself below is the entire part that comes BETWEEN the www, and the
most common "extension" of dot com which it uses.

This must be controverting anti-spam settings in the ARSA software, I'm guessing,
but I think it's important to let readers know where they can look, for something
from any known archival period, if there is any question regarding where it's

Jan 4, 17 more about KREM frank merrill
I'm guessing that posts with website addresses are disabled here in ARSA?  I can't
figure out any other reason this is happening.

Anyway, according to the 1949 Broadcasting Yearbook, KREM-1340 was definitely in
Spokane then.  It wouldn't surprise me all that much if Cash Box indeed misprinted
it as Seattle, because I've seen them make other mistakes (such as KVFD instead of
KFVD for Los Angeles, etc.)

I'll see if this posts.  I tried three other times and it didn't go.
Jan 4, 17 Missing posts? frank merrill
I'm trying to post a website, but I notice my posts aren't showing up.  I thought I
remembered they appear right away; or is there moderation for posts now?  (If
that's the case, that's OK, too.)
