(the Sunday, 5 July 1981 countdown show was pre-empted by WABC's 
#1 records holiday weekend special).  Position information was 
obtained using the mailed survey showing the Top 14, the "LW" 
column in next week's (7 July) mailed survey, and selected numbers 
provided by "Billboard" Magazine's reporting stations section.
