KFXM & K/men This Week in 1964

The Beatles have taken over the charts.  K/MEN is having a little fun with the song titles, and the K/men pictures.

The KFXM survey shows number 3 "FUN, FUN, FUN, 59" seems like a half-hearted attempt by KFXM to copy KMEN's survey song titles humor the following week.

Naw. If you review the KFXM surveys inclusively, starting from 1959 through 1964, you will see other instances when their music surveys made humor of various song titles. This week's "...FUN, 59" was likely just a coincidence from their music director's jocular persuasion that that time.
Memory loses me, but I do seem to recall other attempts at song title/artist mischief in both KMEN and KFXM surveys up until around 1968, maybe later than that.
From my perspective as a former Top 40 radio music director, I can tell you such linguistic misnomers were merely intellectual exercises brought on entirely due to one factor (when compiling the weekly survey), boredom!
