The scans are pretty low res. I'll email you the list so as to not take up too much
space here. I appreciate your help.

and they can be added easily.  Thanks!

Tim & Gary,

Instead of deleting, I went ahead and added the image of the full street sheet
survey. The Top 16 match, so now just the Extras need to be added to the ARSA
chart.  Thanks.

Tim,

Could you please delete this survey, WOL 1967-05-12?
I found a better version that has the top 16 and all the Extras. 

Thanks.

You're welcome. There's this dedicated KJR blogger, Joey Beretta, who has been
transcribing the KJR surveys from the newspaper (beginning in 1964) and posting
them to his blog. kjrfab50.blogspot.com

  Thanks for info Geno!  We had known that "Dirty Old Egg Sucking Dog" appeared on
Cash's "At Folsom Prison" LP, but that was two years later in 1968.  Missed this
1966 album.  Good find!  Knew Lan Roberts had been a DJ on KORL but couldn't
confirm if he was on KHJ.  Perhaps he made an in-house novelty sing along with the
Cash song.  I'll enter it as an album cut from "Everybody Loves A Nut".   Thanks
again!

Johnny Cash's song "Dirty Old Egg Sucking Dog" is on his 1966 Columbia LP "Everybody
Loves A Nut." 

Found this in a blog about KJR: "“Dirty Old Egg-Sucking Dog” was a track from
Johnny Cash’s Everybody Loves a Nut album, appearing here on the survey just this
one week.  Lan Roberts was a KJR disc jockey; I have not been able to determine why
he was listed as a co-artist."

Hi Gary,

The ARSA date needs a change to 1969-06-21 as you have in the heading.

 Good going guys!!
May 5, 15 RE18: The phantom singles! Geno Rice
 
Oh, excellent! Way to go, Kenn. Another one bites the dust!

Hi Geno...

  Not bad theorizing, but I'm pretty sure the track is actually "Magic Baby" by The
1984 Love Machine on CBS International 101.  Just found a Facebook posting with a
KSTT chart that has the track sitting at #23:

 
https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=4252648448776&set=o.210616152385627&type=1&theater

  If you go down the Facebook thread, you'll also see someone refers to the 1984
Love Machine as "a.k.a. The Loved Ones".  (I'm guessing they had to change their
name after they got wind of The Australian band?)  

  Just found the Facebook post this aft, otherwise I would have posted about this
earlier!  

  Cheers,

  - Kenn.

Sorry, I got the years mixed up. Magic Box came out in 1967 and the single on In
Records #8093 may have also been from 1967. 
May 5, 15 RE15: The phantom singles! Geno Rice
 
The Loved Ones' "Magic Baby" (1969) might be a typo of "Magic Box." This was the
Australian group's last album, released late in 1968. The title track may have
gotten some airplay on KSTT at the beginning of 1969, which is why it appeared on
the 1969 year-end round-up. Unfortunately, there are no other KSTT surveys from
1969 in ARSA, (yet).

I listened to the title track on YouTube, and this garage rock song has many
memorable shouts of "baby" and no clearly repeated "magic box." I can easily see it
being misremembered as "Magic Baby" by the staff almost a year later.

Thanks guys! 

I'm sure that any other djs who may have played the B side are going to call it
"Care Free" as well! It's a great song.
May 4, 15 RE13: The phantom singles! K.A. Scott
 
Some outstanding detective work on this one, Geno!

Listening to both sides as posted on YouTube, it sounds to be like the same
instrumental backing track is used for both sides, but with a completely different
set of lyrics and vocal melodies on each side.  "Put Your Money Where Your Mouth
Is, Part 2" definitely could have (and probably should have) been called "Care
Free", as that's the repeated hook of the song ... and the phrase "Put Your Money
Where Your Mouth Is" doesn't appear once!


May 4, 15 RE13: The phantom singles! Gary Pfeifer
 
 Thanks for the great research, Geno!  Added "Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is,
Part 2" to the data base, changed the title on the related chart and added a
notation that the survey shows the title as "Care Free".
