A GREAT MANY MORE RADIO STATIONS
will be jumping on the bandwagon for 1964 and next annum on issuing their own individual cumlative year-end Top 100 charts.
following Al Anthony's increasing day-to-day involvement at KFXM as Operations Manager, El Bosso made sure The Tiger would be ready at the end of 1965 with their first yearly countdown of the hits.
and once again, our fearless Bloggastrator has provided another historically important missing chart listing... thanks, Doug!

LEST AULD LANG SYNE be overlooked on the first day of 2010 -- a new decade opening before us -- this One would like to wish a Happy New Year to:
Megablogger, Anonymous, Jonny Bruce, Bill Earl, Steve, Danny Dare, Bob, Bruce Chandler and Doug (among others)...
all of you fellow bloggers have made for very interesting times here on "Doug's Stuff Room".
discussions has been exchanged; ideas, thoughts, facts, opinions, experiences and recollections have added to our collective knowledge about the two greatest Inland Empire pop radio stations most of us were privileged to be connected with in some fashion whether listening fanfare or establishment insider -- or sometimes, both.
i certainly have learned a great deal, assimilating new information of historical value for these great AM broadcasters of yester-year.

and to "The Helmsman", if i have earned your respect thoughout,
then this One is one lucky person.
all my best personal regards, John, for the memories! {TOOT, TOOT!}
