THE WLS MUSICRADIO SURVEYS

 

Here is a chronological list of the WLS Musicradio Surveys from 1971 through 1986. Jock of The Week and other "special items" are listed under the date.  As noted, this is a work in progress, so not all jocks are listed yet. Also, look for the listings to expand back further in future updates.

1986 NOTES:
Last WLS-FM survey appeared on January 11, 1986.
* - denotes surveys with the "WLS Format" using Z-95 "Zenith" logo.
^ - denotes "Street Sheet Format" using Z-95 "Zenith" logo. "Street Sheets" did not feature a "Jock of The Week."
Survey changed logos on June 13, 1987 to avoid litigation from Zenith.

Last ever survey was printed on May 5, 1990.

 


1999-2014, Scott Childers and Munchkin Studios
