Again this week, and for the second time (fourth week) in its Top 40 history, there is no #1 on WABC's chart! Most WABC survey aficionados contend that this week's #1 would probably have been "Centerfold" by the J. Geils Band, on the EMI America label, a song never played by WABC, as it had softened its format to a more Adult Contemporary sound by early 1982.
