  NOTE: The Top 77 of 1978 debuted on Christmas Day. As WABC did the 
  previous year, they featured the Top 77 through New Year's Day,
  interspersed with songs on the current survey that aren't on the
  Top 77. Note that they kept the exact same songs on the survey.
  In the Bush is not aired this week, it returns on next week's survey.
  The new gold library is also not listed this week, since the new gold
  library is entirely in the Top 77 of the year.

  NOTE: We don't have the store printed list this week.
  The top ten albums reflected above are a repeat of last
  week's top ten for continuity.
