SPECIAL NOTES:  This survey made its debut on Wednesday, 21 
February 1973, due to the Washington’s Birthday Holiday.

The extraordinarily short playlist (17 current records) reflects 
the increase of gold programming at night.  The ratio after 7:00pm 
was three gold records to one current record.

This week, the song “The Cover of ‘Rolling Stone’” by Dr. Hook & 
the Medicine Show (on Columbia) begins a long chart run on rival 
station WWDJ, debuting at #29.  WABC elected not to play this 
record, allegedly due to the reference(s) to cocaine.
