     NOTE: The additional disco songs aren't on the printed list.
     They are not aired from 5AM to 10AM.

     SPECIAL NOTE:  WABC is listing both sides of the Village 
     People single in the same position on the printed list.

     Happiness and Haven't Stopped Dancing Yet aren't on the
     printed list.

     The printed list shows the Hot Prospect by Gary's Gang as 
     "Let's Start a Love Dance".

     Love Ballad was played, although it is not on the printed list.

     The "Top Ten Albums" list is temporarily eliminated from the 
     printed list, due to the long survey.
     It will return in May when the survey is shortened.
