Hit Parade Hall of Fame

image from allaccess.com

The Hit Parade Hall of Fame website neither indicates how the Hall came about nor what the criteria are for induction. The Wikipedia page describes the Hall as “an association which highlights musical performers who have been responsible for big hit records over the years.” It also suggests artists, such as Bing Crosby and Frank Sinatra, are ignored by the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame but honored by the Hit Parade Hall of Fame. A nominating committee selects acts which have at least two top ten records, in any genre, according to Billboard or Cashbox. After nominations are unveiled, the public is allowed to vote. Nominees are revealed in the second week of February and inductees are named in the second week of January. Here are the inductees and nominees from 2007 to 2015.
