This week, WABC reintroduces the Top 10 Albums list.  (Last seen 
in the early sixties, and a brief album list reappeared for a few 
weeks in 1970.)

The printed survey now carries this caveat: “WABC plays selected 
music from these lists.”

SPECIAL NOTE: The Wings Hot Prospect was not added to the playlist until Monday, 5 April 1976.

NOTES: 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. Some formatting may have been done to allow survey to display properly on the blog.
