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 / MARCH 1971:

This month's chart takes us down Memory Lane with a leprechaun DJ and a lineup of great songs. WCFL/Chicago, week ending March 18,1971, gives you Top 40 singles, top 10 albums, and top 10 "Gold" requests ... yes, 1960s were considered oldies. LOL. Remember and ... Rock On!
