KFXM Tiger Mag March 28, 1969

Bye Bye Tiger Mag
Take a good look at this KFXM Tiger Mag. This will be the last one that looks like this. There won't be another official survey until July of this year, and it'll be a third this size (remember the ones in 1964?). In the meantime there will be a playlist, or at least a partial playlist (depending if I listened and wrote down the songs). At the minimum you'll have the #1 song for the week on KFXM from each week in April, May and June.

Why did they stop being printed? Can anyone out there tell me? Danny Dare? Al Anthony? What's the story?
