Of course I'm ordering this today!

What I really need in addition to this book is a distillation of the data of the 'New & Active' listings under the 70s & 80s R&R CHR charts (to give me an indication of when radio actually started to program the titles).

Has anyone out there begun to compile this info? I know that the actual CHR chart info is out on the 'net but I haven't found the 'New & Active' info yet.

Andy, we didn't do anything on the "new & active" info.
I've been doing the basic chart research for the main
chart only at this time. BTW, there are some mistakes in
the online info. that I've uncovered.

We're running LOTS of big sales for Xmas. Our latest
flyer goes in the mail today and the website prices should
be adjusted very soon.

Wow, this is great news! As you know, Paul, I've been campaigning for this book's release for a long time now!

BTW Paul, How long will this book be at the pre-sale price? With lots of big sales for Xmas and your mailer going out today, I'm just hoping I can wait for the mailer while still getting this book on sale.

Also, what is the first date in 1973 where a Radio & Records pop chart was published?

(I hope one day you print a Weekly Charts for R&R, too, but that may be wishful thinking. I guess the Record World Singles Charts 1973-1982 is close to ready, and that the Cash Box Top 100 Charts The 80s is more of a possibility, since you commented that the '80s book would probably sell pretty good, based on the '70s and '60s ones.

The sale price will be good until at least the end of
January. If you're on the mailing list, you should get
your mailer by the end of next week.

The first issue of Radio & Records was dated October 5,
1973. On the first chart, they had a "last week" column,
but since that was just an in-house, unpublished test
chart, we chose not to include it (besides, we couldn't
reconstruct a full Top 20 because we had no idea what
might have fallen off that test chart to make room for
any new entries).

The Record World Singles charts 1973-82 will HOPEFULLY be
out early next year (2019).

I'm in too!!
I've been wanting to update my (1996) Top Pop Singles for a
while now but have been reluctant due to the fact that by
the mid 90s the Hot 100 had become more and more dominated
by unfamiliar rap songs that received little airplay.
Even the radio stations that I worked for in the 90s (and
beyond) had let their Billboard subscriptions lapse due to
the decreasing relevance of the charts (as well as the
price).

Paul, now that you and Joel are branching out into other charts for your Record Research books, how about the possibility of producing a singles chart book for Your Hit Parade, or Variety? I would guess slim and none, ha, but I sure would be interested, as I'd guess others would be, too. Cheers!

We've discussed the possibility of Variety, not sure there
would be enough demand. There already was a book done by
someone else for Your Hit Parade several years ago.

I always used this site:

https://wweb.uta.edu/faculty/gghunt/charts/chart.html

Not as pretty as your book - plus no B-side or Label &
Number data but he does show nifty graphs of the song's
chart run.

A few thoughts....

1. I've uncovered some data errors on that site. Our
book corrects those errors.

2. For some reason, that site doesn't count the frozen
week(s) at the end of each year. They really should be
counted and our book will include them in the totals.

3. As of August 2006, they stopped following the charts
published in R&R. Our book will include the data as
published in R&R for 2006-2009 (the publication ceased
with the 6/5/09 issue).

Thanks for the tip, Paul! I was able to snag a gently used copy of the Your Hit Parade book on the www. Interesting stuff for 1935-1940, and interesting to compare 1940-1958 against Billboard. Though I already have your 2 excellent Pop Memories books, and your Pop Hits book 1940-1954. Cheers n crisps...
