March 10, 1962 and sometimes in 1973

I received a couple interesting items from K/men's ben e mccoy.
The first k/mendous ten, two weeks before the first publish K/mentertainer. Notice that #10 is Chip Chip The lineup for K/men sometime in 1973. Probably right before Ken Levine came aboard. I know Huckleberry was back around 1973 sometimes after the 1972 reunion, I'm not sure exactly when, maybe late 1973? I think Dusty Morgan was there with Huckleberry, but Mark Ford was gone.

thank you ben!

Update September 9/11, 1970 KFXM

I always appreciate help in making this blog a little better. I did not have a copy of the KFXM September 11, 1970 Tiger Thirty, so I used a list based on the next week's survey showing what was on the survey last week, and a reader sent me a scan of both sides. Thank you, Bud Goodwin.
From his email, "I also used to hang around the local stations and knew a few of the DJs, mostly KFXM, as I was working on getting into radio but that's a story for another time. I worked with Vic Moreno (when he was MD of KFXM) at KVCR-TV"
Thank you again, Bud.

You may notice the date is slightly out of sync September 9 instead of September 11
What songs were missing from my list...#12 Signed Sealed Delivered, #15 Overture From Tommy, #17 I've Lost You #21 Long, Long Time #22 Make It With You #23 (I Know) I'm Losing You (which indicated in the next week it was #19 this week) #19 is actually Westbound #9 which was dropped from the survey this week.

K/mentertainer September 14, 1962

It's only September 14th and Monster Mash-Bobby (Boris) Pickett is #1
Highest debut #7 Venus In Blue Jeans-Jimmy Clanton
Close To Cathy-Mike Clifford This is a song that I heard on a regular basis in 1966 and later. It stuck around a long time.

KFXM Capitol Records

A couple weeks ago I went to the swap meet and bought a box of 78 rpm records. Nothing real exciting about the records, some big band, country, pop (no rock & roll or r&b).

The interesting thing was the box the records were in at the time. It was from Capitol Records and addressed to Eberle Shields at KFXM on 5th Street.

These don't appear to be the original records from the box, and not even records played at the radio station, but the box was from the station when it was at the California Hotel on 5th Street.

Picture and atrticle about The Band
The Bee Gees below, with much bigger things to come in years ahead

Jimi Hendrix, Vanilla Fudge concert review below
In Bits & Pioeces "Tiny Tim very thrilled about the song John Lennon has written for him" Anyone else know if this happened and the facts around it?

Hey Jude/Revolution-Beatles #1
Highest debut All Along The Watchtower-Jimi Hendrix Experience #13
#30 is interesting Don't Leave me-Nilsson The flip side of the original issue of Everybody's Talkin' I liked this song, but it wasn't time for Nilsson to have a hit yet.

New Shapes Of Things To Come-Max Frost & The Troopers from the movie Wild In The Streets. I've heard the group was Davie Allen & The Arrows with a singer

OK How many names as song titles on this survey? Jude, Susie Q, Lalena, Elenore, Loreen. Probably more than average for the late sixties.
