(Never played on WABC, allegedly due to the reference[s] to cocaine in the song.) Also this week, “Superfly Meets Shaft,” a “break-in” record by John & Ernest (on the Rainy Wednesday label) debuts on WWDJ at position #22. The record, produced by legendary break-in master Dickie Goodman, eventually peaks at #3 on WWDJ, but never receives any airplay on WABC.
