Still wondering if there are any more comments about changing the K/mentertainer-survey to correspond with the KFXM survey. The pro and con are about equal at this point. If Imake a change, it will probably happen next week. If I haven't yet heard from you, let me know what you think.
Thank you, Doug
Top favorites of the year #1 Record Cherish #1 Artist Monkees. Based on Riverside high school poll. Interesting is that a bunch are album tracks.
Top sellers Beatles #1
#1 single of the year Daytripper/We Can Work It Out-The Beatles. Cher's Bang Bang made #2 for the year. That is probably the only song in the top ten that still doesn't get regular airplay on oldies stations. Other intersting songs on the top100 #33 Hey Joe by The Leaves #65 Let Love Come Between Us by The Rubber Band #76 Follow Me by Lyme & Cybelle #88 Feeling Sad & Lonely-Bush. A lot of songs that are differen tthan the typical 1966 top 100.
They did not print the weekly top forty, so based on the next week's number listing for LAST WEEK, here is the top 40 and listed below are the songs that fell off and the likely songs that may have been the missing numbers.

If the collections will support it how about time-shifting the run of KMEN surveys so that they will be in sync, more or less, on a week to week basis with KFXM? I think this 40 year flashback run is great.

The problem is that at the end of 1966 KMEN started putting out an eight page newspaper. If I did that, I proabably would only be able to to do the survey section, which covered two pages plus the cover page.
Readers give me your opinion.
Contiue the K/MEN surveys as is, or match the date with the KFXM surveys. Right now I only have time to do one or the other.

Bits & Pieces have Great Britain voting the Beach Boys over the Beatles as the world's outstanding vocal group! Also interesting that Jeff Beck is leaving the Yardbirds and a comment that "The future of group member Jimmy Page remains in doubt." Cliff Richard also took top vocalist away from John Lennon.
Yardbirds knocked out of number one by The Royal Guardsmen-Snoopy Vs. The Red Baron and the Monkees at #2 with I'm A Believer/Steppin' Stone.
Frank Sinatra is #5 with That's Life right in between The Seeds-Pushing Too Hard and The Bush-Who Killed The Ice Cream Man
Looks like Buddy Budnik gave away Lucky Bannanas. Anyone win banannas. Anyone know the story behind this contest?

In 1967, probably about 5-6 months after the issue shown in the last posting came out, I took this particular issue to school. (why, I don't remember) While in my Jr. High science class someone wanted to see it, and then it continued to be passed around the classroom. What I remember were the comments about how old this issue was, and the old songs listed on the survey. This was less than a year latter!! I guess when you're that age 6 months is forever.
PS I was also worried about getting it back, or having the teacher taking it away, but it did get back to me.

Good Yardbirds article. Once again they have the #1 song of the week
Picture of The Bush and the lyrics to Who Killed The Ice Cream Man? Debuting at #40 Harmonica Man-The Torquays
Someone tell me. Is there anyone out there that can tell me what happened to kfxm590.com and webmaster John Bunnell?
Why is it "off the air"?
It was everything you would want in a website dedicated to KFXM. Does anyone know????

Great top ten. Besides the Yardbirds being #1 The Bush and The Whatt Four are also in the top ten. Smashed! Blocked! by John's Children is a personal pick. A really loud punk psychodelic song that was played a lot on both KFXM and K/MEN.
The Orange Show this year had K/MEN involved with the Camel Race and the Ostrich Race.

One Kmen contest had schools competing to turn in the most writings of some sentence or slogan. I think the Catholic Schools got together and all submitted for Aquinas High School so they won the prize which I think was a concert. When was the contest and what was the phrase/sentence??John from Fontana (back then)
Aquinas did win, but I never did hear about any help from other schools. But I guess it is a possibility. The phrase you wrote was your signature, and you could write it as many times as possible. The prize was definitely a concert. The last article in this posting tells about the concert. Click on the pictures to enlarge and read the details. By the way the year was 1967.

Any requests or questions about KFXM or K/MEN? If any of the readers out there have any of those, let me know. If I can answer the requests by posting information, I'll be glad to, or I'll try to find the answer, if I can't I'll let you know.
Thanks for stopping by. Doug

Donovan knocked The Beach Boys out of the #1 position with Mellow Yellow and he gets his picture on the cover of the Tiger Mag Great DJ pictures. Danny Dare finally gets his picture along with the rest of the guys.
Highest debut this week Mamas and Papas-Words of Love at #32. I'm A Believer/Steppin' Stone a Prsonal Pick this week. One of the first new 45s I bought (at White Front for either 59 or 69 cents)
