     NOTE: WABC now begins to shorten the playlist for the summertime, 
     as they now play more oldies throughout the day. In hindsight,
     this is something that should've been done (play more oldies)
     back in March when, instead, they added dozens of extra disco
     songs to the playlist and lost lots of ratings points.
