It is # 7 this week, the week WABC added the song to its playlist. However, the add lasts for only two days. The record is pulled at the behest of upper management. (The story is that the wife of an upper-corporate-level manager or director heard the song on the air, and demanded that it be pulled; one might say that she pulled "My Ding-a-Ling.") After this week's survey, the song is never heard again on WABC.
