Contest Results Well, the results are in! In what was the largest response we've ever received for one of our many contests, it seems we opened up a veritable dam of creative ingenuity and memory searching. We thank one ~nd all for th_& ..replies, better luck with our next contest. The winner of 10 LPs of his choice is Brad Auerbach of 142 North Drive in Amherst, N.Y. and it was a c-1-o-s-e battle. Honorable mention goes to Cindy Frandina from Lovering Ave. in Buffalo who sent us a list totalling 280 of groups that did not exist. Nice try, cutie, but with imagination like yours, you should be writing for us. Up next is a Name-that-ass contest, appearing next issue (just barely-Ed.).
