VANCOUVER TOP 40 RADIO EDITION
2019

Money-Maker Presley 'Hot RCA Property
by Red Robinson
Vancouver Sun Oct. 4, 1957
  
   More records have been released on all labels this year than in any other given year in music history.
   This makes it more difficult for songs to reach the top 30.  There are so many new songs coming out each day that I've had to enlarge my top 30 to become a top 50.
   I'm getting an average of 100 new releases a week from all record companies including new companies.  Some of the old name record companies that folded up four or five years ago, like National Records, are opening up again and making a bid for the buyer's dollars.
   Just today RCA Victor announced that Elvis Presley is the biggest money-maker they have had since Gene Austin.  Presley has sold over 20,000,000 records to date for RCA Victor in just a little over a year an a half.  If he keeps this up he'll be one of the biggest all-time sellers in music history.
   Is it any wonder RCA Victor signed him up with the biggest contract in music history?

-Editor's Note:  The Top 30 (to 50) survey mentioned here by Red, refers to his Teen Canteen chart, not the CKWX "Station" chart.  (JB)

RED'S RECORD RACK

The Girls Go for
Frankie (Avalon)
by Red Robinson
Vancouver Sun Oct. 4, 1957

   One of the latest rock and roll movies is called "Jamboree."
   One of the stars of the show is Frankie Avalon--a boy who records for a small label recently formed in the States called Chancellor records.
   The feature side of his new record is called Teacher's Pet and it's from "Jamboree."  In this show 18 American disc jockeys are featured along with many top names in the recording field today.  Frankie is 17 and a favorite of a lot of female teensters.
   Another rock and roll show coming your way is called "Mr. Rock and Roll."  This movie stars Laverne Baker, Fats Domino, Clyde McPhatter, Little Richard and many more top rock and roll stars.
   Some of the songs from the show are already listed on the top selling charts across the nation.
   Among these are "Rock and Cry" with Clyde McPhatter, "Keep a Knocking" with Little Richard and "Humpty Dumpty Heart" with Laverne Baker.
   As we predicted in this column two weeks ago, rock is not on its way out.
