Subject: Re: Was there a LOCAL top 40 countdown show.
In reply to: Garage Rocker 's message, "Was there a LOCAL top 40 countdown show." on 11:32:52 04/06/15 Mon

I'm pretty sure that Chuck Brinkman did a countdown every week in the mid-1960s (when John Rook was PD) when the new survey was introduced. Dave Scott did a top-5 countdown every evening from 6 to 6:30 (when KDKA was running a half-hour news block, ahead of KQV's own) around that time.

In the 1950s and early 1960s, the Storz stations' late afternoon program was called "The Top 40 show" and presented the hits in reverse otder. I have no memory of this, but as KQV copied the Storz format very closely in its earliest years (several former Storz people were in KQV and ABC management), it's possible that they did the same, at least initially.
