There's another one of those
charters on one station and not
on the other.
#12 on KFXM and nowhere to
be found on KMEN:
Chirpy Chirpy Cheep Cheep.
Great great tune and never
heard from again. Good rockin
tune. Nothing heavy, just
a catchy song.

So why so popular on KFXM and
no honorable mentions at all on
KMEN?? This has happened throughout the history of pop music all over the US. Isolated

i can personally testify to the fact that a certain music director absolutely HATED that catchy little ditty by Mac and Katie Kassoon and simply would NOT allow it on to the playlist" of his 'Truckin' station... i was blown over hearing this admission after continually hearing how "objective our music surveys are than the 'other station's"!
just an example that despite so-called objectivity from various program and music directors throughout the nation, a lot of recordings were either added or "weighed down" due to the PERSONAL preferences of the radio people including are our own local music programmers. tis sad but, true, nonetheless.
