WLS was my most favorite radio station of all-time. I listened to it constantly from shortly after our family moved to Rantoul, Illinois, in 1975 until we moved away in August 1981. Constantly that is except for the Summers when I was whisked out of state by my grandparents. My Dingo Boots box of cherished WLS music surveys collected during that time mysteriously disappeared during that move in 1981 but I've recently acquired a few of those old surveys including some from 1982 the greatest year in music when I wasn't even a WLS listener. I discovered The 1982 Rock Hall Of Fame was printed on the back of ten of those surveys, running from June to August 1982. I'm guessing this was the station's annual Memorial Day Weekend feature as it features songs from throughout the history of Rock N Roll, from the Fifties up into the Eighties. Would love to hear from anyone who remembers listening to it or knows more about it. It's all old but it's all new to me you know what I mean?
The only other instance of a WLS Top 500
I could find online was this one from 1986.
Thank you and good night!
