WIBG Philadelphia Survey November 06 1967

This survey may contain the peak number of genres ever played on one station. The late 60s saw the coexistence of rock, pop, soul, surf, british, classic pop, jazz, and local rock on surveys from  around the country. WIBG's Top 99 had room for Frank Sinatra, James Brown, Dusty Springfield, Joe Tex, Cher, Keith, Beach Boys, and Ramsey Lewis and Hugh Masakela, and on the air as well. It was truly a melting pot of music that doesn't exist today. Click to enlarge.
