SPECIAL NOTE:  This is the last WABC survey universally 
distributed to record and department stores.  From now on, the 
survey can only be obtained via Metro Reports (a handout that 
contains playlists for several New York stations, and occasionally 
an out-of-market station), mail, or off the air.
