  NOTE: "Kiss You All Over" by Exile (Warner Brothers) is finally
  added to the WABC playlist on Monday, October 30. The number given
  is 15, although it is very likely that the song was still in the 
  top ten. Since the top 14 was already aired as listed, they probably
  decided to air it with the first open position.
  It is not on the printed list.  
  The song has recently hit #1 on both WNBC (three weeks ago) 
  and WXLO (the past two weeks).
  WABC initially didn't air the song from 6AM to 10AM.
