RPM (ISSN  and later ISSN ) was a Canadian music industry publication that featured song and album charts for Canada. RPM (magazine)_sentence_0

The publication was founded by Walt Grealis in February 1964, supported through its existence by record label owner Stan Klees. RPM (magazine)_sentence_1

RPM ceased publication in November 2000. RPM (magazine)_sentence_2

RPM stood for "Records, Promotion, Music". RPM (magazine)_sentence_3

The magazine was reported to have variations in its title over the years such as RPM Weekly and RPM Magazine. RPM (magazine)_sentence_4

RPM maintained several format charts, including Top Singles (all genres), Adult Contemporary, Dance, Urban, Rock/Alternative, and Country Tracks (or Top Country Tracks) for country music. RPM (magazine)_sentence_5

On 21 March 1966, RPM expanded its Top Singles chart from 40 positions to 100. RPM (magazine)_sentence_6

On 6 December 1980, the main chart became a top 50 chart and remained this way until 4 August 1984, whereupon it returned to being a Top 100 Singles chart. RPM (magazine)_sentence_7

For the first several weeks of its existence, the magazine did not compile a national chart, but simply printed the current airplay lists of several major-market top-40 stations. RPM (magazine)_sentence_8

A national chart was introduced beginning with the 22 June 1964 issue, with its first national number-one single being "Chapel of Love" by The Dixie Cups. RPM (magazine)_sentence_9

Prior to the introduction of RPM's national chart, the CHUM Chart from Toronto radio station CHUM was considered the de facto national chart. RPM (magazine)_sentence_10

The final number-one single in the magazine was "Music" by Madonna. RPM (magazine)_sentence_11

The RPM Awards RPM (magazine)_section_0

The modern Juno Awards had their origins in an annual survey conducted by RPM since its founding year. RPM (magazine)_sentence_12

Readers of the magazine were invited to mail in survey ballots to indicate their choices under various categories of people or companies. RPM (magazine)_sentence_13

The RPM Awards poll was transformed into a formal awards ceremony, the Gold Leaf Awards in 1970. RPM (magazine)_sentence_14

These became the Juno Awards in following years. RPM (magazine)_sentence_15
