imo Mark did a slight poor job doing this as a sit in, the chart run down was pretty basic, however he improved from 1991 onwards

Charlotte Clayton

It’s a great point, and I totally concur... I’d go as far as to say late ‘91 even. I felt his first three months on the show after taking over from Bruno were very poor.

Poor Dj Shouldn’t never been on Top 40 and then them slow bad production 3hours shows killed the Sunday Chart show off

Love these Top 40s from this era. Mark Goodier did a fine job sitting in for Bruno

Worth noting that the No.5 record (Martika - “Toy Soldiers”) would later be sampled by U.S. rapper Eminem for his 2005 UK chart-topper “Like Toy Soldiers”... but yet, the original was written about a friend’s drug addiction - pretty dark for a gripping 1989 chart hit.

Mark Goodier also did next week, it was a bit of a mess up somehow with the Number 2 song (Blackbox - Ride on time) skipped due to running out of time

Paul Miles
