Featured Surveys

Welcome! Let's reminisce and enjoy a few minutes cruisin' down Memory Lane to the tunes of our youth. You're on Blast from Your Past's Featured Radio Surveys page! Enjoy the moment ... again.

Periodically, a cool vintage radio survey - or music chart, Top 40, Top 30, Top whatever - is featured here to coincide with BFYP's "50 Years Ago" trivia. All surveys are from the Blast from Your Past Collection unless noted as radio surveys from other great sites.
  * Artist names and song titles listed as printed on original survey.


Featured Survey / JANUARY 1970:

Radio surveys are highly collectible and great fun for those who enjoyed them "back in the day." Those with anomalies like misspellings or misinformation, or in this month's case, a printed mondegreen title, are especially dear ... and valuable.
     Perk up your memory banks with WCFL/Chicago's "Big Ten Countdown," January 26, 1970, with Sly & the Family Stone's #1 hit, "Thank You Fa Lettinme Be Mice Elf Agin" ("Thank You For Lettin' Me Be Myself Again.")
Enjoy the memories ...
