Just a note before the New K/mentertainer.
There seems to be someone that cannot find this weeks posting of the 1962 KFXM survey.
I just double checked and this week's 1962 posting is still  there. Posted on this Monday Dec 5th between the 1966 K/MEN and the 1973 KFXM posting. Dated Dec 1-7, 1962. Big survey picture, blue background, green printing, Lyles Record City stamp on it! #1 song by Dick Dale.

That person who can't find the KFXM survey you already posted must need a new pair of glasses!

According to Ravencroft's article on the front page, the K/mentertainer is supposed to be a "16 page newspaper". However, I can count only FIFTEEN actual page images -- not including the two enlargements of the center-survey page!

So did a page of this first issue get missed being scanned and posted here, Doug? Or was the 16th page left blank???

The pages with the survey are the center of the issue pages 8 and 9. 7 pages before and 7 pages after.
