SPECIAL NOTES:  No play on Cher's "Where Do You Go."  This record 
is included here, in the position it appeared on the printed 
survey.

On this week's survey debut day (9 November 1965), the entire 
Northeast suffered a power blackout at 5:27 pm, Eastern Standard 
Time.  This blackout knocked most radio stations off the air for 
hours, even days in some cases.  WABC lost power on the Dan Ingram 
Show, in the middle of Si Zentner's "Up a Lazy River" (an 
instrumental gold Dan had back timed to hit the local news).  As 
the record slowed and warbled on the air, Dan made several 
comments about the way the record sounded ("...this is a VERY lazy 
river!"), and wondered on the air what was going on before 
everything went black.  WABC resumed broadcasting from the site of 
their transmitter in Lodi, New Jersey.  (New Jersey, and points 
west and south of the Hudson River were on a different power grid 
and uneffected by the blackout.)
