    Only short three weekly charts for this year – the issues dated March 16, June 29 and November 23. All the weekly charts are the same style and design that was introduced during July 1978. As in 1978 all the charts were published on Friday. The last scheduled chart of the year for 1979 to be published Friday Dec 28 was postponed to Tuesday Jan 1 1980 – with the Top 99 for 1979 being printed on the back of that issue. As like the last several years this special edition was an expanded size tri-fold type chart.

     The Top 99 aired on Dec 31 1979 is presented here – the Jan 1 1980 weekly chart will be included in the chart exhibit for that year. Only one chart has an incorrect date this year – the first issue of the year for Jan 1 1979 shows up dated on the chart as Jan 1 1978. Kind of what I do in my checkbook at the start of the year.

    Coming soon – KTKT charts for the eighties -stay tuned.
