"REFRESHING" ---- VANCOUVER RADIO
CKWX ---- 50,000 WATTS ---- 1130


Notes:
-"Hats Off To Larry" was inadvertenly omitted from this week's survey. On next week's survey the Last Week column places it at number 10 for this week, so it was likely billed on air as a tie with "School Is Out".
-Disk-Covery of the week "Rockin' Band" by CKWX DJ Del Erickson.
