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

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