That would be great Kenn - my e-mail is wallacek@eircom.ie

I believe the book uses the Billboard Canadian charts aswell as the RPM charts?

I'm aware of the RPM site,but as you say it is not very user friendly,however I
have battled my way through it.

Thanks for your help! - Kevin

 Good catch, Jim.  The 11-26-67 survey is in error and should be deleted, but I
don't see an option available to me to do so.  I will contact Tim, unless you have
a way of deleting it.

Hi Kevin...

  I don't actually own this volume, but I can look up the info you've requested in
it the next time I'm at the library.  (Probably in the next week or so.)  Just let
me know where to send it!

  YOu may also be interested in RPM Canadian chart site at
www.collectionscanada.gc.ca/rpm  It's a little eccentric in terms of navigation,
and there are some charts and years mislabelled or missing, but it's still a great
research site.


  Cheers,

  - Kenn.

To Kenn Scott - I believe you may have this book in your possession? - would you be
interested in selling? - if not could you forward the Beatles stats to me please.

Many Thanks,Kevin

Gary, while doing some routine ARSA maintenance tonight, I stumbled onto the fact
that this exact same list appears twice, but because of a two-day difference in the
survey's date, it didn't show up as a dupe. Maybe you'll want to check into this at
some point - thanks!   -Jim

 Looks like that was a blunder of mine from 5 years ago. Thanks for catching it.  I
tried correcting it also and it won't take either.  I will get in touch with Tim.

Jan 30, 10 KGB Duplicate Geno Rice
 
Hi All, 
There's a duplicate survey KGB-1967-11-01.  One of them should be station KHJ. 
Tried to change the station in Edit Survey but it would not take.

the last two postings for KGB Radio show charts for
dates 11 October 1967 and 25 October 1967, yet
the published survey for October 25th is a duplicate
of the 11 October survey previously posted.

thought i should bring this to someone's attention.
thank you guys!
Jan 25, 10 CHUM Toronto RE2: 1974-01-26 / CHUM-FM ( Toronto, Ontario ) ARSA Jim
 
I have also experienced similar frustrations in the past, when ARSA pre-post survey
information is initially entered in error - often, it can't immediately be
changed/corrected, for some reason. My workaround has always been to just wait a
week or two, and then try again to make the exact same change. I have no idea why,
but the change will then often "take", for some unknown reason! But, since I've
already had do a special "CHUM workaround", to leave the redundant "FM" band name
in the call letters field for CHUM-FM (despite the existance of a separate "Band"
field already inside ARSA, so ARSA can distinguish it from CHUM AM - an error also
waiting to be fixed), goodness knows what will happen here, when "bad ARSA code
meets more bad ARSA code". Due to Tim's ARSA time constraints, maybe he would
consider giving me a special "second programming code access key", just for such
VERY minor code fixes. I did it for a living for 10 years, and I am very confident
that I could quickly repair lots of these very minor ARSA issues. But, it can be
quite dangerous to have more than one person have this kind of powerful system
access, and to set all this up for me may create more work for Tim than it would
end up saving him! Knowing this, I will respectfully and totally defer 100% to
Tim's wishes here, either way - I'm just throwing the offer out there. By now,
Tim's had six years to evaluate my ARSA efforts/competence. I only make this offer
now in an attempt to help ARSA become less quirky, and to make Tim's ARSA life
easier.   -Jim  
Jan 25, 10 CHUM Toronto RE: 1974-01-26 / CHUM-FM ( Toronto, Ontario ) Gary Pfeifer
 
 This was my error when inputting the survey.  I attempted to edit the survey and
change the call letters but the revision isn't saving.  Tim or Jim?
Jan 25, 10 CHUM Toronto 1974-01-26 / CHUM-FM ( Toronto, Ontario ) K.A. Scott
 
Hi all..

  This survey, currently listed for CHUM-FM, is actually for CHUM AM.  (I tried to
change the station heading myself, but this doesn't seem to work.  I'm assuming
only Gary, Tim or Jim can make the change.)  

  Cheers,

  - Kenn.


Jan 24, 10 Thanks Greg Wolf
 
Thank you Gary, Roy and A.R. I will take a look at what you all have suggested.Like
I said before great site.

Have a great day!
Jan 24, 10 RE: EZ / MOR Surveys Or Playlists Roy Ballard
 
hi greg! welcome to arsa. to be honest, i had to google "mor" to find out it meant
"middle of the road" (maybe we need a "mor" political party?)

anyway, i remember that many stations put "ez" in their call letters to designate
easy listening music. i found these on arsa which might help you: weez, knez, kezy,
wpez, kkez (search on stations).  looking at a few surveys, i see manilow and neil
diamond even tho the format says t40. i don't think arsa allows searches on
format.

one more thing. someone mentioned that they didn't have access to a scanner, so i
thot it would be a good time to plug freecycle.org. i've received 2 free working
scanners from this network of people that give free old stuff away instead of
sending it to the landfill. it's lots of fun and there are local freecycle groups
all over the world. u can either post "offer" or "wanted" to the group, e.g.
"wanted scanner for win xp".   cheers!  roy
Jan 24, 10 RE: EZ / MOR Surveys Or Playlists Gary Pfeifer
 
 Hi Greg,

   We don't have many charts from MOR stations here.  I don't believe many of those
stations printed up surveys; however, we do have the following two for you:

  WNAC 3-17-58
  KROD 5-27-65

 Hope those will give you something of what you're looking for!

  Gary

Welcome to ARSA, Greg.  You might like the 1970 and '71 surveys from WFAA (Dallas). 
You'll find many EZ/MOR songs that did not chart on the billboard hot 100 or
bubbling under...
Jan 21, 10 SUNSHINETUNES67 AND TOKENHIPPIE54 TOKENSURFER HIPPIE
 
WHAT I'M ALSO DOING IS LOOKING UP THE CHARTS FOR OBSCURE LOCAL SONGS THAT JUST MADE
IT ON THAT CITIES CHARTS. AND FLORIDA HAS BEEN FANTASTIC FOR THAT. SO I FIND THESE
SONGS ON THE MUSIC SEARCH SITES AND PUT IT ON YOUTUBE . SUNSHINETUNES IS BASICALLY
FLOWER POWER SUNSHINE POP HARMONY STUFF WITH A FEW GARAGE ROCK TUNES ON THERE. THE
TOKENHIPPIE IS STRICTLY A CANADIAN SITE MOSTLY 60'S WITH SOME EARLY TO MID 70'S 
CANADIAN TUNES. THERE'S ABOUT 280 OF SOME OF THE RAREST SONGS ON THERE. AND I HAVE
OVER 380 TUNES ON SUNSHINE. I SHARE THAT SITE WITH AN AMERICAN. SO YOU SEE
CANADIANS AND AMERICANS CAN GET TOGETHER ON MUSIC PROJECTS.  AS I SEE YOU GUYS HAVE
ON HERE. TOKEN
Jan 21, 10 MONTREAL CHARTS TOKENSURFER HIPPIE
 
I KNOW I HAVE A FEW FOR CFCF FROM CLIPPINGS. I'LL REALLY HAVE TO DIG THOSE OUT. I
PUT THE CHARTS OF KIMN ON FLICKR  HALF OF 65 FOR NOW. JUST GOOGLE KIMN DENVER RADIO
CHARTS OR TOKENSURFER AND YOU SHOULD FIND IT ALTHOUGH IT'S FROM YAHOO. SO GOOGLING
FROM YAHOO WOULD MAKE BETTER SENSE. I CAN SEND THOSE CHARTS TO YOU AS WELL BUT I
DON'T KNOW WHERE ON HERE. I HOPE YOU APPRECIATED THE VILLAGE PEOPLE ANALOGY. I
THOUGHT I HIT A HOME RUN MAKING THAT POINT.  TOKEN
Jan 21, 10 Picks Up Wrong Hits, etc K.A. Scott
 
Hi Jim...

  Might I suggest the creation of an ARSA FAQ to cover some of these situations? 
The FAQ could cover the following questions:



-- I've got some surveys/airchecks I'd like to enter on the site.  How do I get
started?



-- My favourite station/city isn't represented on the site!  Why not?



-- I've noticed an error on the site.  How do I report it?




Most of the answers to these questions can be cut-and-pasted in from the posts
below, or from elsewhere on the site.  Presto, instant FAQ (with answers)!

If possible, it would be nice to have a FAQ button posted on the left hand side of
the screen, which could then lead to the FAQ article.  If not, the FAQ could be
continually re-posted to Chart Chat every month or so. 

Anyway, it's just a thought.  Hope it might save you some time and energy in the
long run!


Cheers,

- Kenn.
