    NOTE: Dirty White Boy is only aired from 6PM to 1AM although,
    since we have the number, Dan Ingram must have played it.

    All My Love isn't aired between 6AM and 10AM.    

    Though not on the printed list, WABC re-adds some gold titles
    from earlier in the year to the internal playlist, which are
    all of the songs listed above starting with Lady by the Little
    River Band. This will continue into the first few months of 1980.
