Hi,

I'm aware of that resource, but thank you very much.

To clarify: it was standard industry practice, then and now, for many weekly publications to be available at newsstands at least a few days before the cover date. For example, in the 1970s, the Boston Phoenix, a weekly, bore a Tuesday cover date, but was on sale in some area locations on the previous Saturday and that's when I usually bought it. So the Boston Phoenix dated February 28, 1978 was actually on sale Saturday, February 25th, 1978. That's what I'm trying to pin down here: when did the new issues of Billboard and Cashbox become available to the public? It might have been on the cover date, but I'm inclined to think that it was at least a day or two earlier than that.

 Best,


Matthew Barton

Hi,

Does anyone know or remember when new issues of Billboard and Cashbox hit the newsstands, ca 1956-1957? I believe Cashbox was subscription only, so I may be asking for the mailing date here. I believe that Billboard was actually available at some newsstands before subscribers received their copies. Cashbox covers gave a Saturday date, while Billboard's was a Monday date.

Many thanks,


Matthew Barton
