Subject: RE: 1950's Magazine 'Hit Parade'
Elizabeth, you may have figured by now that the magazine contained the words to the popular songs of the day as well as articles on artists and such and ads that would give you a little picture of the times. Seems like there were also top ten play lists from radio stations around the country. This was in the days before Clear Channel Communications and the top ten in New York might only have two or three songs from the top ten in Atlanta or Dallas.
