NOTE:  This is a transcript of the first ever CHUM chart.  

For the first few months of the CHUM chart's existence, 
positions 1 through 10 listed both artist and song title; 
positions 11 through 50 listed song title only.  
The transcript of this chart includes artist information 
for positions 11 through 50, based on 'best guess' 
information concerning records issued at the time with the 
appropriate title.  It was quite common at the time for
several artists to release competing versions of the same
song at the same time.   

ALSO INCLUDED:  CHUM DJ Phil Stone's personal top 10, as 
printed in the Toronto Telegram on May 31, 1957.  It
includes one song not on the official CHUM Top 50 list:  
"Cocoanut Woman" by Harry Belafonte.
