KOLA Survey +

This is the earliest KOLA survey I have,
Below are also the KMEN and KFXM from August 1970 presented for your comparison. #1 Signed Sealed Delivered-Stevie Wonder, while #1 on the other two is Make It With You-Bread.
Don't Play That Song-Aretha Franklin looks like it already peaked at #2 on KOLA, and just barely started on the KFXM/KMEN charts.
New on KOLA Candida-Dawn and Green Eyed Lady-Sugarloaf

New on KFXM Lookin' Out My Back Door-CCR and Joanne-Michael Nesmith
New on KMEN Yellow River-Christie and Julie, Do You Love Me?-Bobby Sherman

KFXM lists Wigwam-Bob Dylan as the hit, while KOLA lists the flip side Copper Kettle as the hit
KOLA is automated with no djs, KFXM has pictures of Doug Collins, Chris Roberts, Chuck Clifford, Dimple Don Bob B. Blue and Bob Brooks, and KMEN has no listing or pictures this week, only mentioning Mark Ford.

KFXM Tiger Mag Aug 25, 1967

Seeds on the cover, with article inside. Interestingcomment about the Beach Boys new album being retitled from "Smile" to "Smiley Smile" in the Bits & Pieces article. Most people don't consider it the same album.

after in the second week on the 40 The Letter-The Boxtops.
Free Me-Paul Jones--- Never heard it. Can anyone out there tell me about it?
The Rolling Stones
They have their psychadelic doubled sided single as a personal pick. We Love You/Dandelion. Dandelion is a good song. I've always enjoyed it.
Shades of Mr. Spock!
Leonard Nimoy doing Visit To A Small Planet is another personal pick.
How about this personal pick-- Love Revelution-Billy Bud --This is also unknown to me.

K/mentertainer Aug 19, 1967

We saw before that Dave McCormick looks like Mr Spock. Now Robert E. Walker is a look-a-like for Tommy Roe
1967 The Youngbloods hit the charts with Get Together. KMEN recognizes the song as a hit, putting their picture on the cover stating, one of the fastest rising singles, and one of the most requested. Nationally, it had to wait until 1969 to hit the top ten. #1 Ode To Billie Joe-Bobbie Gentry
New to the top thirty this week #26-30 There Is A Mountain-Donovan, I Dig Rock & Roll Music-Peter, Paul & Mary, I Had A Dream-Paul Revere & The Raiders, Soul Finger-BarKays, and Fakin' It-Simon & Garfunkel
Interesting that Jimi Hendrix as Purple Haze on the charts and Cher is hit bound with Hey Joe
