Notes
-The "New Sounds Sweepstakes" was a four-nights-a-week event on Buddy Clyde's program in which three new songs were introduced, preceded by the recorded sounds of a boxing ring and bell, as Rounds 1, 2 and 3.  Listeners phoned in and voted for their favorites. The winning song was played later in the evening. Red Robinson contined the feature when he assumeed the evening time slot. Red later re-introduced the feature under the name "Battle of the New Sounds" when he moved to C-FUN.
