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.

Every month--50 Years Ago--a cool vintage radio survey, or music chart (depending on how you know them), Top 40, Top 30, Top whatever, is featured here to coincide with BFYP's "50 Years Ago this Month" nostalgic blog. 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 / SEPTEMBER 1973:

Though we have four terrific radio music charts this month, only KPOI/Honolulu is below--for now. If possible, I'll add KKDJ/L.A., WAQY/Springfield, Massachusetts, and WCFL/Chicago before month's end. I had to choose KPOI for September's featured survey, in dedication to Maui and all of Hawai'i as they deal with August's wildfire aftermath. Please do what you can to help and in the meantime, enjoy the fantastic memories with our Song of the Month and KPOI's "Action 20 Records of Hawaii." So much great music, so long ago ... Remember when and Rock On ... 50 Years Ago this Month ... Enjoy the Moment Again!

#2: Sunshine Ship ~ Arthur, Hurley & Gottlieb

The Beatles caricature on KPOI's survey cover is odd and perplexing, even for the Psychedelic Seventies. What do you think?
