Issue #411 - “Captain John” Lodge makes his first appearance on the cover of the survey. He replaced Jerry Butler in the 6PM - 9PM slot.
"Let's Pretend," listed under New Music," is sublime. I think it's the '70s answer to "Wouldn't It Be Nice." Eric Carmen's voice has never been better.KHJ played "Kodachrome" intact, but I can recall one station playing it with the "crap" cut out.It was surprising that KHJ charted "Superfly Meets Shaft," a break-in record. The previous fall, "Convention '72" went Top 10 nationally but didn't chart on KHJ.
Steve: As I remember it, KHJ played the edit of Kodachrome. So did K-100. KKDJ played the uncut version, as did KCBQ, San Diego.
You could be right about "Kodachrome." It's hard for me to remember at this point who played which version. I DO remember hearing it air on a station once in 1973 with SIRENS coming in over the "crap."
I agree that KHJ played the edited version of Kodachrome.
