Inhaltsangabe: WABC, New York, was one of the most popular and influential Top 40 popular music AM radio stations in the 1960s and 1970s. This volume - the first in an ongoing series reproducing the station's weekly record charts from that period - covers the earliest surveys produced by WABC, beginning with the week of July 9, 1960 (featuring the classic oldie, "Alley Oop," in the number one position) through December 1964. An historical survey of WABC as well as an essay explaining how the charts were compiled are also included. Like the other radio charts titles, my goal was to provide a convenient chronological compilation of weekly surveys with corrections of the considerable errors found in both the original sources and in translation to online sites. These radio charts – which exist in the public domain – can be found in a multitude of sources, including original published sheets distributed via retail outlets, mail inquiries, etc., notation of on-air broadcasts, back issues of area newspapers (where stations are located) and music trade periodicals, specialized reference books, and websites interested in historical documentation, most notably, Oldiesloon, musicradio77, and ARSA. I employed multiple sources in the compilation of each radio chart volume in order to provide the most accurate data possible.
