All American of the Week:
     Herb Oscar Anderson - 6:00-10:00 AM Monday - Saturday

SPECIAL NOTES:  This appears to be a frozen playlist this week, 
except for a new pick hit, an extra hot prospect, and additional 
Christmas music.  This survey would have been on the air for only 
a couple of days, until WABC began playing all Christmas music, up 
until midnight Christmas Day.  The list of Christmas records here 
is not all-inclusive, as more holiday songs were added as 
Christmas drew nearer.  (The above list actually represents songs 
that were more prominently featured during the days just prior to 
Christmas.)  From 26 December until after New Year's Day, WABC 
exclusively aired the first of their year-end special Top 100 hits 
of the year.

The album cuts on this week's survey are from the newly released 
U.S. album, "Beatles '65" (those with the Capitol records label 
designation) or from the concurrently released U.K. album, 
"Beatles For Sale" (with the Parlophone label).  Many, but not 
all, of the cuts were shared by both albums.  WABC noted that 
"Beatles '65" was #30 on the album chart.  They were also 
announcing "The Beatles Story" interview album as #5, "A Hard 
Day's Night" as #12, and "Something New" as #15.  They did not 
explain how they arrived at those numbers, or the source of the
