SPECIAL NOTES:  This week WABC is playing the album version of the 
Beach Boys’ “Barbara Ann,” from the LP, “Beach Boys’ Party!”  It’s 
the same recording, except that it continues past the fade, runs a 
couple more verses, and ends cold.  At night, a longer version of 
the same cut is played; the difference is a long musical “jam” 
intro, before the normal cold opening vocals.

For the first (and only) time, there were two songs listed as the 
Pick Hit;  on the air, WABC referred to a “split pick hit this 
week,”  alternating the two songs every hour.

The album cut is from “Rubber Soul.”

NOTE: This is a text-only survey. The song titles and artists shown above are presented exactly as they are shown on the printed survey. Any typos, spelling errors and/or other anomalies are as they appear on the printed sheet.
