------EXPLANATION: The H.Kandy Rohde book lists the TOP TEN of EACH WEEK from 1-1-55 to 12-31-67. It starts with the TOP TEN of Jan 1, 1955. Those are the first ten tunes here. The eleventh one listed then replaced one of the 1-1-55 Top Ten a week or two later and so on. I scanned the Top Ten for each week and rather than repeat about nine of them each week I just added the new one to the end. Now let's say that you look at MEMORIAL DAY 1956. You can bet that a bunch of songs on each side of the words Memorial Day 1956 were being played on the radios on that day. The ones BEFORE that day were already on the TOP TEN and the ones after that day were probably in the SECOND TEN and RISING into the TOP TEN....... .......
