KFXM and K/men June 25, 1965

Last week was the debut of the new K/mentertainer newspaper. This week the new Tiger Mag. This a restored copy that someone had sent me. Sections are cut off at the bottom of some pages, but that's the way I received it.
Satisfaction-Rolling Stones #1 on both stations.
Highest debut Walk In The Black Forest-Herman's Hermits #26 I don't think so. Actually Horst Jankowski and up from 30 last week. I'm Henry The VIII I Am actually the highest debut at #27New

My Little Red Book-Manfred Mann
Yes, the date doesn't match on the survey and the cover. It wiil take about a month for them to get it right.

I've heard KFXM had planned a newspaer before K/MEN, but K/MEN rushed to beat them to the punch. But who knows?

KFXM also continued their small version of the fabulous forty for the next few months. This one even advertised the first Tiger Mag
