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" trivia blog. All surveys are from the Blast from Your Past Collection unless noted as radio surveys from other great sites.

Featured Survey / MARCH 1973:

Sometimes a cartoon is just--joyfully amusing and creative--but some are a peek behind the curtain, as is the case with this month's Featured Radio Survey. KSTN/Stockton, California, showed its humorous side with a dose of realism in its March 9, 1973, survey cartoon. DJ Chuck Cannon's '70s hippie style is paired with a peek behind the mic. Was he really that messy? Enjoy the artsy antics, along with their vintage Top 40 and Rock On ... 50 Years Ago this Month ... Enjoy the Moment Again!
