NOTES: The mention of the Auckland, New Zealand radio station is a joke. It was in response to KRLA’s crosstown rival KFWB who had a habit of putting asterisks after certain songs and labeling them as “first heard on KFWB.”

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.
