Radio Luxembourg’s Hit Parade, 1976
Did you know that the early independent radio station Radio Luxembourg used to work out its own pop charts? Wanting to stay ahead of the game, they’d base their chart on what they thought was shortly going to be popular rather than the usual one based on actual record sales. I wonder if they ever got it terribly wrong?
I’m pleased to see David Essex is happy, there – http://skittishlibrary.co.uk/david-essex-is-sad-1976/
Also, 1970s Noël Edmonds. “Oh no, it’s a picture of me looking slightly different!”
