     NOTE: Twelve-inch singles are not aired from 6AM to 10AM
     and aren't on the printed list.

     The additional disco songs aren't on the printed list.
  
     The songs at #29, 40, 50, and 51 aren't on the printed
     list. Songs #17, 23, and 30 are indicated as New Gold
     on the printed list.

     NG stands for New Gold, songs which are still aired after
     falling off the survey.

     SPECIAL NOTE:  The printed list only shows In the Navy but WABC
     announced both sides of the single at #24.

     Even though YMCA more than qualifies for the New Gold category, 
     after 19 weeks on the survey, it is not added, possibly due to
     burnout.

     The "Top Ten Albums" list is temporarily eliminated from the 
     printed list, due to the long survey.
     It will return in May when the survey is shortened.
