1966 KOOK Radio 970 Billings, Montana Survey
The May 16, 1966 survey from KOOK Radio 970 Billings, Montana features DJs Michael B. Anthony, Wayne Coffey, Tom Reed, Major Dan Miller, and Carl Mann. Carl went on to KOMA 1520 Oklahoma City from KOOK. Carl can be currently heard nationwide on the Oldies Plus Network. The All Heart survey from the Home of the Happy Hearts top 29 chart has "When A Man Loves A Woman" by Percy Sledge. The number 7 song, "The Ballad Of Irving" was a parody of "Ringo" by Lorne Greene. The artist, Frank Gallop was best known as the announcer on the 1950's Perry Como TV shows. The number 15 song, "Younger Girl" by the Hondells wasn't a top 40 song on the Billboard charts. At number 29 we find "Peter Rabbit" by Dee Jay and the Runaways, a group out of Iowa. It is interesting to note that all of the locations mentioned at the bottom of the survey are no longer in business.
