Doug,It would be great to see you track KFXM and K/MEN from the start of K/MEN's Surveys in March of 1962.

I may do that. One problem is most of my 1962 K/mentertainers are photocopies. But eventually I proably will.

Interesting note about
WILD WEEKEND by the Rebels.
In a short time, the 45RPM
records will show them as
Rockin Rebels.
There was a conflict between
Duane Eddy having rights to
The Rebels (his group).
They modified the name on
the record for this.
I guess it wasn't a happy
split between Duane Eddy and
The Rebels. Duane Eddy was
solo by this time.

I have a copy of the record
by The Rebels. Later on I saw
the same record as The Rockin Rebels
in the record stores.

A great time to start running the '1962 surveys would be March 30, the date of the 1st K/men survey.
