October 14, 1960 ...
It was the VERY first WLS Silver Dollar Survey ever issued.
Although the station had switched over to a Top 40 / Rock And Roll format back in April, they hadn't published a weekly list of the most popular songs in Chicagoland ... until now.
And what a list it was!
Due to some sort of glitch that has never been properly explained, the following week's survey was dated October 15th, only a DAY later rather than a week later. "Stay" by Maurice Williams and the Zodiacs leaped from #12 to the top spot ... and "Ruby Duby Du" by Tobin Matthews ... a song that hadn't even appeared on the previous week's chart ... and would go on to top the chart itself just a week later ... was in at #4 ... not bad for a brand new premier!!!
