Chart Notes: Duplicating their record six songs in the WPGC Top Ten the previous week, the Beatles go one better (two, to be precise) as 'Twist And Shout' moves from #9 - #7, joining 'I Want To Hold Your Hand', 'She Loves You', 'Please, Please Me', (those three songs would go on to end the year as the #1, #2 & #4 songs on the WPGC Top 100 of 1964), 'All My Lovin' and 'Till There Was You' in positions #1 - #5 respectively for the third consecutive week!

This week, WHMC / Gaithersburg replaces WDON / Wheaton as a reporting station. Not surprisingly, the Fab Four enjoy the top two positions with 'I Want To Hold Your Hand' and 'She Loves You' (where it is erroneously credited to the Searchers) as well as 'I Saw Her Standing There' at #7.

'I Want To Hold Your Hand' also clings to the #1 perch at WEAM and WWDC, falls from #3 to #4 at WEEL, falls from #2 to #5 on Milt Grant's Network while 'She Loves You' tops the charts at WEEL and Milt Grant's Network, holds at #2 at WEAM and WWDC and debuts in the Top Ten at #4 at WINX.

'Please Please Me' rises from #8 to #4 at WEAM, falls from #1 to #3 at Milt Grant's Network, remains at #3 at WWDC while 'Twist And Shout' is this week's 'Predicted Hit' at WEAM and WWDC plus debuts at #7 on Milt Grant's Network but falls from #4 - #7 at WEEL. All this while the latest novelty record about the Beatles by the Four Lads, appropriately titled, 'Letter To The Beatles' breaks into the Top Ten at #8 at WEEL.

Other British Invasion acts score hits this week in the Top Ten with the Dave Clark Five's, 'Glad All Over' moving from #7 - #5 at WEEL and the Searchers debuting in the Top Ten at #8 with 'Needles & Pins' at Milt Grant's Network.
