Been spending my time updating the various Billboard chart collections - adding charts up to the end of April, 2018 (the current ones) and adding chart runs for everything. These are all living spreadsheets so you'll see "working" tabs everywhere plus I need to wait until the Hot 100 songs have departed that chart to update those peak positions.

First charts up: The Adult Top 40 and Adult Contemporary charts:

Next one is the Country and Western charts (Hot Country Songs and Country Airplay). I sent Record Research a copy of my "errors" tab and they have updated their database accordingly. They are currently working on an update to their Top Country Singles which should be available later this year. On the June 2, 1956 DJ chart Billboard showed a tie at #1 including "Yes I Know" by Webb Pierce. Record Research concluded that this was a typo because on the June 9, 1956 chart the "last weeks position" showed the song at #2. So they have "Yes I Know" peaking at #2. I went with the published chart (there were no later corrections) and concluded that the last weeks position was the typo. Billboard charts have plenty of errors in them :(

No more updates for awhile - currently working on the 1980's Cash Box C&W charts. Have to complete the Cash Box C&W and R&B charts 1980-1996 and the Record World Looking Ahead charts 1975-1982.

Then I'll retire :D !!

Trebor, your alternate download links work great, thanks so much! Just one minor thing, the first thing to come up is a preview, which doesn't work, but I could still download and save the files anyway. Super Fab!!

My Norton Security still does not like DrTravel's zippyshare files, sometimes bogus pages came up, sometimes Norton blocked bad sites from coming up, sometimes Norton notified me they blocked 3 different attacks to my PC.

Thanks DrT for doing all this!!

Thanks for the feedback! :D

So, don't bother with the preview message thingy and hit DOWNLOAD directly.

Still unable to access either the files provided by DR.T or those from Trebor.

I get the following screen message

Cannot securely connect to this page
This might be because the site uses outdated or unsafe TLS security settings. If this keeps happening, try contacting the website’s owner.

Your TLS security settings aren’t set to the defaults, which could also be causing this error.
Try this:
Go back to the last page


Can anyone please offer any advise or send me the files in a different format.

Many thanks

Try a different web browser if you haven't already, this frequently does the trick for me when I run into similar problems...

A BIG YAY !! I'm so glad to say I finally followed the advice of others, finally found the time to monkey with this, and added a new browser to my PC.

I can now download DrTravel's ZippyShare files without running into problems.

So while Windows 10 with Internet Explorer 11 and Norton Security once worked OK for ZippyShare, it stopped working maybe 6 months ago.

Today I added the Firefox browser, tied it to my same Norton Security, and ZippyShare now works like a charm! No bogus popups, no Norton download warnings, no computer attacks.

So the problem wasn't Norton after all, but was instead Internet Explorer 11. And also the Microsoft Edge browser which was giving me the same problems.

Thanks again to all of yall, DrTravel, KingOfSkiffle, Trebor !!!

Here's the update R&B/Hip-Hop spreadsheet which now includes the Airplay chart from 2012 onwards - that's when the main R&B/Hip-Hop chart became a "hybrid" chart. Just like I did with the C&W spreadsheet.
