Radio station "tip sheet" showing airplay activity in the areas of rock, Alternative and AAA formats. Published by Bill Hard starting in 1986. Contains many ads from record companies promoting new releases.

From Issue #1; "One more thought before we get to the weighty stuff, concerning my response to those questions regarding "room" for another tip sheet. The answer to that query really comes down to whether or not the existing publications have kept pace with changing music and radio directions.
We submit that the notion of one so-called "album radio" format that's
200 some -odd stations deep is totally out of sync with what's really
happening in the marketplace. There is real and distinct fragmentation happening, and it's our intention to be the first trade publication to accurately reflect same."
