  Tim will have to do the deletion on this one.

Now there are two 1968-04-05 KJR's. You can delete the one that I entered recently
when I noticed that one was missing.

 My error upon entering it, I'm sure.  Corrected now.  Thanks!

Hi Gary, 

Somehow, your KJR survey landed in with the KJRB's.
Jun 30, 15 RE: Deep Purple Smoke on the Water Gary Pfeifer
Stephen - Glad you have enjoyed the ARSA website and that it's been useful to you. 
As to you second question as to who broke "Smoke On The Water" on the airaves, I
don't have a definitive answer to that but based on the information we have
collected in the ARSA databases, here's some info that may be of assistance.

   The first Top 40 chart we have which lists "Smoke On The Water" is a KRIZ
(Phoenix) from 4/14/73.  Of course though, the song had been played as an album cut
on FM stations for nearly a year prior.  The list appearance of the 'Machine Head'
album on a chart we have is 4/15/72 from KLZ-FM (Denver).  Hope this may be of some
help to you. 
Jun 29, 15 Deep Purple Smoke on the Water Stephen Clare
Hi, i am currently researching a book about Deep Purple and Smoke on the Water. i
came across the site during my research and was hugely impressed. i would like to
ask if any members who have surveys i have seen o this site with listing for Smoke
on the Water would be prepared to let me have a printable quality scan of the
survey for the book. you would be clearly credited in the book for your scan.
another question i would like to ask, does anyone know who the first DJ was to
break Smoke on to the airwaves?
Thanks in anticipation, Stephen.

Thanks Kenn!  That works for me.

Hi Jeff...

  I've figured out a temporary fix for this, but I don't know if it will work for
all future entries.  If you're entering further KLIV surveys from the same
timeframe, keep an eye on "Louie, Louie" and let us know if it matches correctly!

  Done!  Thanks for catching that, Geno!
Jun 24, 15 WFIL Philadelphia 1967-03-06 / WFIL ( Philadelphia, Pennsylvania ) Geno Rice
Hi Gary,

The #3 Supremes song title needs to be corrected to "Love Is Here" as it's shown on
the original survey.

Hi Geno....

  Pretty sure you're right about "Bohannon's Beat"!  I'll give it a week or so,
just in case anyone comes up with something else, but if not, I'll make the

There are a number of KLIV surveys where Paul Revere & The Raiders' version of
Louie, Louie is being misdirected to Louie-Go Home, specifically 1/4/64, 1/18/64,
7/17/65, 7/24/65, 7/31/65 and this one I just posted.  I remember this being a
problem with matching title with release year and this particular title had a
second life in the bay area two years after its initial run in 1963.  I think this
happened on some 1965 KEWB surveys I posted as well.

Thanks again,

Hello Everyone,

The 1975 song "Bohannon Speaks" is most likely "Bohannon's Beat" Dakar 4551. The
weird thing is that his autobiography is titled Bohannon Speaks, but it was
produced many, many years later! (Cue Twilight Zone music)...

As before, some of these entries may be straight-up mistakes made by the original
compilers of the printed surveys.  Other entries may have been tapes or acetates
given to local stations that were never released commercially as records. 
Occasionally, we can find a later compilation appearance of one of these songs,
not an original release that lines up with the survey date.  Still other entries
may be jokes or spoofs. 

Nevertheless, we’re also certain that many of these are legit records that
just haven’t shown up yet in any discographies or collections that we have access
to.  So if you've got any info about these records (or even reasonable guesses),
post it here and help us solve some mysteries!

Hi Geno...

  The KSTT survey is way down in my queue...if you want to input it right now, go
for it!

Jun 13, 15 RE: Esther Phillips Geno Rice
Hi Kenn,

If you decide it's a close enough match, the U.S. catalog number is Atlantic
‎– 45-2304. 

Also, I still have in my "TO DO" folder, that KSTT survey from January you found on
face book. Are you going to input that or shall I?

Thanks, Geno
