*****************************************************************
SPECIAL NOTES:  The “First and Exclusive” by the Supremes was not 
added until Monday, 20 March.

Although “Truck a Luck” was announced as “First and Exclusive” 
(and would be played as a “Hot Prospect” in subsequent weeks), the 
song was only 55 seconds long, and was never commercially 
released.  It was, in fact, a promotional song (supplied by 
WABC’s long-time jingle supplier, PAMS) recorded for the “Truck o’ 
Luck” contest running on WABC at this time.
 
 

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.
