Did these 1973 KMEN Hitline surveys actually go to record stores (sice they weren't all that good looking) or just to record companies?

Back in 1973, I picked up my copies from a guy who sold new 45s and used albums at the swap meet. I remember seeing them posted at a couple stores, but I don't think they were ever printed up to give to customers. So very few were probably printed.
He gave the old week's copy when he got a new one. So my originals came from him.

So then it's likely that KMEN only sent out one copy per store, intending it to be posted by the 45s, not for distribution to the public....

By mid 1973, as I recall, they had drifted into a pretty crappy sound & were no longer competing directly with KFXM any longer...
