The spellings on the playlists are determined by cross-referencing several people's record collections, reference books, and extensive library catalogs. Here is a bibliography of some of the books we use the verify artists, titles, and spellings. We try to get these as accurate as possible, but if you do find mistakes, please let us know.
So far, all syndicated playlists (July, 1974 to present) are available. I hope in the future to have all live playlists entered as well. If you have live playlists from 1970-1973, or syndicated lists from the summer of 1975 or 1978 (where there are a couple of mysteries), please contact me at the address above.
