SPECIAL NOTE:  The information here was taken from Metro Report 
No. 285H.  Note that WABC did not report numbers 5, 10, 13, or 19.  
The songs at these positions probably had a harder edge to them.  
As WABC's music format edged to a more adult sound, fewer harder 
songs (of any variety - rock, urban, etc.) were played or noted.
