SPECIAL NOTE:  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.


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.
