Just as in the previous year, the top spot of every survey in 1984 belonged to KVIL. No station came within even a share of nearing KVIL, and the average lead was nearly three shares during the year. The number two spot was monopolized as well, with KRLD taking the second every book in '84. That means to find the moving and shaking, you have to look further down in the rankings.
Top 40 newcomer KAFM managed to defeat KEGL in the spring - it's the only time KAFM ever defeated The Eagle. Another upset came in the country field with the Fall book, when three-year old upstart KPLX notched its very first victory against decade-old KSCS. And after two years of wearing the rock crown, KZEW "The Zoo" defeated KTXQ "Q102" for the very last time in the spring survey (however the battle between the two would continue for another four years.)
