SPECIAL NOTE:  For the second time (third 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.
