SPECIAL NOTE:  "Baby Come Back" by Player was re-added to the 
current survey, due to local sales figures placing it at #12 (it 
had been placed in the permanent/gold library the previous week, 
even though it was still on the current survey at #16).  "Dust In 
the Wind," "Running On Empty," "Always and Forever," and "Goodbye 
Girl" were added based exclusively on their national chart 
strength, according to the weekly music meeting memo.
