SPECIAL NOTES:  The album cut this week is from "Something New."

WABC was actually playing many more Beatles songs than indicated 
by this playlist;  in an apparent effort to satisfy the Beatles 
fans, and since there had been no new Beatles releases for some 
time, WABC was playing album cuts from all of the Capitol and Vee 
Jay album releases, as well as rotating some older Beatle hits in 
and out of the playlist. (A foreshadowing of the "new gold" or 
"recurrent" category in the 1970s?)  Most of these have been left 
off the survey, as they seem to fall more into a "gold" playlist, 
albeit more heavily rotated.
