30 Years Ago Today KFXM

Just for a change of pace.
What was KFXM doing about surveys 30 years ago today?
Well between June 20th and June 29th they changed formats for the surveys. (actually the new one was June 27, 1977 since the next issue is July4th.) Edgrrr disappeared entirely,and a little the style was a little more sophisticated.
Sorry, KMEN wasn't pulishing a survey in 1977.
Notice, both issues list the same top 30. Everyone must have been on vacation that week.
#1 Undercover Angel-Alan O'Day. Barry Manilow and Steve Miller new in the top ten. Favorite song on the survey Peace Of Mind-Boston Concerts advertised on the back. Two very different concerts. Both at the Swing Auditorium. I didn't go to either.
No DJs listed. Can anyone tell me who was on the air June/July 1977?

Interesting. This is supposed to be the height of disco, but all you have is Andy Gibb, KC & The Sunshine Band and the Sylvers on the chart representing Disco.
The others on the chart just shouts the middle 70's. Two Eagles songs,Stevie Wonder, Barry Manilow, Fleetwood Mac, Peter Frampton, Hall & Oates, Boston, Steve Miller Band,Abba, Boz Scaggs.
This sounds like the playlists of the oldies stations today (except for maybe Barry).
