Yes, Substitute is a classic with amazing lyrics. It was first a hit in 1966 but re-released ten years later for some reason.

I always thought 1976 was a dreadful year for music but there were a couple of goodies: Bonnie Tyler and Lost In France, and Yvonne Elliman's Love Me.

Me too. Late 1976 and early 1977 were particularly bad IMHO. Thank heavens punk rock came along and brought some excitement back to the charts later on in '77.

A great chart in the first hour, January 1963. Must have been the time I just started to notice the songs on the radio! Most I can still sing almost word for word........ especially Susan Maughan's Bobby's Girl which everyone in the NE loved.

Telstar followed by Globetrotter made a nice segway and there were several instrumentals.

H

....and a double sided No1 with both sides played, nice one!

I love The Next Time,Helen - for me, one of Cliff's best.

I've just caught up with Saturday's programme and you're right it was a great chart, starting off with Little Miss Dynamite - on a par with Dusty (who featured with her brothers later on) imo. Ray Charles,Del Shannon and lots more to enjoy. Brightened up my Wednesday afternoon. Cool
