So a few years ago I loaded the information I had from the KFXM surveys from 1963, and came up with the following top 170 of the year. The calculations included the weeks on the survey, and the position it held to determine it's year end position.
It qualified for 1963 if it hit it's peak position in 1963.
This is probably not 100% accurate, but it is something to compare the K/men survey to for 1963. I can't go back and recheck anything at this time on the old computer, so if it had mistakes, they are here to stay.
