"This Guy's in Love With You" debuts at No. 10. Ray, a while back you noted a high-debuting record. How many records did debut in the Top 10 on KHJ?

Also, my memory is that KHJ played "MacArthur Park" with the middle section ("There will be another song for me ...") edited out but did include the instrumental passage. I was always surprised when I'd buy a 45 and find out it was different than what KHJ was playing. Most of the time it was simply just a single edit or an early fade, but other times it would radically different. I'll note more of these as I see them in later charts.
