The Tip Sheets

   Radio, Fred and others. Includes directories and other special editions

Radio industry publications referred to as  "Tip Sheets" included The Hamilton Report, Fred and "Radio". Those for which we have a limited collection are listed here.
From the first appearance of the Gavin Report in 1959 through today's online versions, radio stations have used Tip Sheets to see what songs are hot (and which are "stiffing out"), what other stations are adding, the latest ratings for other markets and who changed stations and even what promotions are being run.
Here are a few samples of such publications. More will be added as they are discovered. Donations gladly and gratefully accepted, too.
