KFXM and K/men January 29-30, 1971

This K/mentertainer for 1971, will be the last one I have to print until Feb 26, 1971 and that will be the last K/men survey I have until June 1971 (with a new look, and some new people). In April and May I have a couple playlists, which I will publish when the dates arrive.
HELP! Does anyone out there have any K/mentertainers from these missing months (Feb, Mar, Apr, May)? Does anyone know if they were even any published?
I would appreciate any help/information. Thank you.

I will continue to post KFXM 1971 I Hear You Knocking-Dave Edmunds #1

My story: In 1964 my dad had a coupon book where you could get free stuff. One coupon was for a free 45 at a record store (must have been Lyles, but I don't know) He must have picked it up this week, because he told me they gave him the #1 song (they must have been using the KFXM chart-I got Anyone Who Had A Heart). Too bad they weren't using the K/men survey.

One Of My K/men Stories

Starting in 1966 I used to win a lot of contests on KFXM and K/men Ask Danny Dare- he may or may not remember. He actually told me one time I may have to be limited to the number of contests I could win.
K/men Contest
On New Years Eve 1970 I was getting ready to go to a party, and the contest I was waiting for came on.
"Be caller number 100 to win the Top K/men 100 for the year."
Well I managed to do just that. I was told I would get them within a week. Didn't happened. A little more than a week later, my parents went to the station for me, and they were told that a little more time was needed, but they were given 3-4 albums for the inconvenience.
I got this letter a couple days later. Anybody recognize the names of the other winners on the letter?
By the end of January I did get most of the prize. Probably between 85-90 of the hits, another dozen LPs.
It worked for me.
