  * The week of September 16,1970 was the last week of WMCA charts. After that week
the station changed to an all talk format. So to compile this list WMCA charts are
used from the beginning of the year until September 16. From September 16 to the
end of the year the singles charts from Radio Station WABC also from New York City
were used in the compilation.
