The extraordinarily short playlist (17 current records) reflects the increase of gold programming at night. The ratio after 7:00pm was three gold records to one current record. This week, the song The Cover of Rolling Stone by Dr. Hook & the Medicine Show (on Columbia) begins a long chart run on rival station WWDJ, debuting at #29. WABC elected not to play this record, allegedly due to the reference(s) to cocaine.
