KRLA Dec. 7-14 1962 survey in-house
Survey courtesy Mike Devich

Here's a special treat-- a KRLA survey that was never released to the public.
KRLA was not printing a survey at the time. (Don, if you see Bill Earl-- give
this to him.) I'm copying it exactly as it was typed, with the times of the
records and the notations (if anyone knows what "RecMarch" and "Merit" etc.
mean, please let me know. Tip sheets? Distributors? The typewriter had dirty
letters and sometimes "RecMarch" looks like "RecMerch," so it could be the
latter. --Mike Devich)
