The Top Twenty

Tania – Am I right in thinking, that the new chart was broadcast on Radio 1 on a Tuesday lunchtime? I know it was always played on a Sunday evening as well, but I have a strong memory of crowds of girls trying to crowd around a tinny tranny in the playground, waiting to find out if there was a new number 1! (Out of sight of the teachers, and of course those dratted prefects, because radios were strictly forbidden)!

Rennie – I’m really not sure about that Tania, I do have a vague recollection of it but somehow always had it in my mind that sunday was the day. Any one else remember?

David – You’re right, Tania.

The new chart was played on a Tuesday lunchtime between 12 and 1. They played the top 5 between 12.45 and 1 (I think that it was Newsbeat at 12.30).

Can’t believe I remember that – I can’t remember things that happened yesterday.

Tania – Ah David…apparently the long term memory is so much stronger that the short term one, which is probably why…oh, what was I about to say? Anyway, thanks for helping me out on that one!

I started building Escape in 2005 and in it’s early form I had the pleasure of a great 70s community. Sadly with Escape’s new design we couldn’t incorporate the old threads into the new forum but so we don’t lose all those magical old chats we’ve collected them all here for you to go back and read.
