Anyone notice the date? These are the surveys out the week President Kennedy was assasinated. For those around and old enough at that time, probably remember where you were when you found out. The radio surveys only reported the music in 1963, and not the news. There were proabably many news broadcasts, and a lot less music on the radio this week.
