History Cashbox (magazine)_section_0

Cashbox is one of several magazines that publish record charts in the United States. Cashbox (magazine)_sentence_2

Its most prominent competitors are Billboard and Record World (known as Music Vendor prior to April 1964). Cashbox (magazine)_sentence_3

Unlike Billboard, Cashbox combines all currently available recordings of a song into one chart position with artist and label information shown for each version, alphabetized by label. Cashbox (magazine)_sentence_4

Originally, no indication of which version was the biggest seller was given, but from October 25, 1952, a star was placed next to the names of the most important artists. Cashbox (magazine)_sentence_5

Cash Box also printed shorter jukebox charts that included specific artist data beginning in Spring 1950. Cashbox (magazine)_sentence_6

Separate charts were presented for jukebox popularity, record sales and radio airplay. Cashbox (magazine)_sentence_7

This was similar to Billboard's methodology prior to August 1958, when Billboard debuted its "Hot 100", which attempted to combine all measures of popularity into one all-encompassing chart. Cashbox (magazine)_sentence_8

In addition, Cash Box published chart data for specific genres, such as country music and R&B music. Cashbox (magazine)_sentence_9

In 1960, Cash Box discontinued its R&B chart after the March 5 issue; it was reinstated in the December 17 issue due to popular demand. Cashbox (magazine)_sentence_10

The chart was originally dropped because it became dominated by pop records. Cashbox (magazine)_sentence_11

Cash Box was reinvented as the online-only Cashbox Magazine in 2006, with the consent and cooperation of the family of George Albert, the late president and publisher of the original edition. Cashbox (magazine)_sentence_12

Cashbox has occasionally issued special print editions. Cashbox (magazine)_sentence_13

As of April 2015, Cashbox Magazine has added the following music charts: Roots Music, Bluegrass Singles, Bluegrass Gospel Singles, Beach Music Top 40, Roadhouse Blues and Boogie Top 40, Country Christian Top 100 Singles and Southern Gospel Singles. Cashbox (magazine)_sentence_14

The online magazine also relaunched the Looking Ahead Charts on March 1, 2015, covering all genres of music. Cashbox (magazine)_sentence_15

The Cashbox Top 100 has been expanded to the Top 200. Cashbox (magazine)_sentence_16

All chart data for the main Cashbox charts is provided by Digital Radio Tracker. Cashbox (magazine)_sentence_17

The current leadership of Cashbox includes Ed Russell, Doug Stroud, Harold Miller, Christopher Elrod, John Hook, Tommy Smith, David Bowling, Randy Price, Father Jim Drucker, and Lee Vyborny. Cashbox (magazine)_sentence_18

Featured columnists include Jim Rose and nationally syndicated music columnist Jerry Osborne. Cashbox (magazine)_sentence_19

Randy Price maintains the original Cash Box data for the online archives. Cashbox (magazine)_sentence_26

The Swem Library at The College of William and Mary maintains the archive of the original print editions of Cash Box magazine. Cashbox (magazine)_sentence_27
