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.

The Beatles were everywhere this month, except in the Top 40 charts, as McCartney plotted their dissolution. KHJ/San Francisco felt the need to commemorate them in their "Boss 30" survey for March 4, 1970 ... Enjoy the memories ... Rock On! 50 Years Ago This Month ... *
