          SPECIAL NOTES:  Although "Jingle Bells" by the Singing Dogs 
          appeared on last week's printed survey (as "The Barking Dogs"), 
          the record did not receive airplay until this week.  It is also 
          given a survey number (34) for the first time.

          The Neil Diamond record ("Stones") was not on the printed survey, 
          but was played on the air without an announced survey number.


NOTES: This is a text-only music 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 and modifying may have been done to allow survey to display properly on the blog and improve searching ability.
