Note: This was the first WPGC Top Ten list published on a Saturday by the (Washington) Evening Star as part of the 'Area Disc Jockeys Pick Top Ten Records' feature in the Teen portion of the new 'Weekender' section which had previously appeared on Fridays.

Chart Notes: The Lads from Liverpool keep a tight grip on the top two positions at WPGC with 'Can't Buy Me Love' and 'All My Loving' respectively. Meanwhile, 'Do You Want To Know A Secret' rises from #10 - #6 as both 'Twist And Shout' and 'She Loves You' fall out of the Top Ten, (the latter going on to be the #2 song of the year on the WPGC Top 100 of 1964).

Elsewhere around the dial, 'I Want To Hold Your Hand' falls from #2 - #4 at WEAM and drops out of the Top Ten on Milt Grant's Network, while 'She Loves You' falls from #1 - #3 at WEAM, falls out of the Top Ten on Milt Grant's Network, falls #2 - #9 at WINX and holds steady at #3 at WHMC.

'Can't Buy Me Love' leaps from #5 - #2 on WEAM, remains at #2 on Milt Grant's Network, falls from #1 - #3 at WEEL, stays locked in place at #1 at WWDC and debuts in the Top Ten at #1 at WHMC.

'Please Please Me' loses a notch from #4 - #5 at WEAM, drops out of the Top Ten at Milt Grant's Network, WWDC and WHMC. This, as 'Twist And Shout' rises #3 - #1 at WEAM, stays right in place at #1 on Milt Grant's Network and WINX, slips from #5 - #6 at WEEL and falls #7 - #9 at WWDC.

'Do You Want To Know A Secret' falls out of the Top Ten this week at WEAM, yet goes #3 - #1 at WEEL and debuts in the Top Ten at #8 at both WWDC and WHMC. Not to be outdone, in the battle of the Northern Virginia titans, 'Thank You Girl' falls out of the Top Ten this week at WEAM, but debuts in the Top Ten at #2 at WEEL.

Finally, yet another Beatles song hits the airwaves as 'Roll Over Beethoven' debuts in the Top Ten at #5 at WEEL!
