Chart positions

Here is a full VHF Mono recording of the BBC Top 40 from Sunday 16th May 1982 (w/e 15.5.82) music features Duran Duran, ABC, Blondie, Junior, Tight Fit, PhD, Nicole and much more.... The #4 record had to be played again as a vibration in the studio caused something to fall onto the turntable, it must of been played really loud for that to happen lol



Thanks DJ Ad

Almost certainly the case. Tommy recounted that instance in the '25 Years of the Chart Show' programme in 1992 - he admitted that he always played music at very high volume in the studio because he loved it so passionately and really wanted to feel part of it, in a manner not necessarily representative of all his contemporaries.
