San Francisco Bay Area Radio Music Survey ChartsListed alphabetically by call letters.

For many years, stations would publish a listing of the records that made their “Fabulous 40,” “Big 30,” “Lucky 13” or even “Sensational 60” hit music survey. These surveys were usually offered for free at music shops, record stores and other places where records were sold, or where the station had a promotional tie-in. Records were ranked based on a variety of factors, including local and national sales, listener requests and the preference of station personnel.

The peak period for music surveys was the mid-1960s, at the height of the Top 40 radio era, when stations battled for supremacy among teen listeners. Surveys would not only include the ranking of the top songs, but also those on the way up (“hitbound”), as well as photographs of the disc jockeys and information about upcoming concerts and events (such as fairs, drag races and amusement park promotions); some surveys even included advertisements for local and national businesses and products, including fast-food restaurants, soft drinks and pimple creams.
