RADIO ONE TOP 40
RICHARD SKINNER
SUNDAY 30TH SEPTEMBER 1984
BBC RADIO ONE
VHF STEREO
5PM TO 7PM

Join Richard Skinner as he presents his first regular Top 40 show on Radio One's 17th Birthday.
This was the same day that David Kid Jenson began presenting the (in my opinion) inferior Network Chart on commercial radio........ At the end of the day, it didn't matter how good or bad the Network chart show may or may not have been..... we KNEW it wasn't the REAL chart !!

Remember this - and Richard's slight flub on the opening link! I was flipping back and forth between this and the ILR version. Nearly got caught out, as I thought the Network Chart would start at 5.03, but they didn't take IRN.

Actually Radio Moments posted Bruno's first regular Top 40 show as "First BBC Chart with Bruno Brookes - March 1986 :)

It was Richard's first scheduled show, although he actually presented 5th August 1984 as a stand-in for Simon Bates.

Absolutely right Andy. I's very deceiving too think it was his first show when it was actually his second. Similar story along time ago when Radio Moments uploaded Bruno Brookes Top 40 (first show) dating back 30/03/86 although his first regular, he stood in for Richard Skinner in the same month on the 9th.

not a good idea to play all 40 records unless it was longer than 2 hours. most of the songs cut short to get them all in instead of 32 in total with opt out the droppers in the low half

I'm not sure, I think occasionally it was okay to play all 40 discs. The best way to do it IMO is to just play 2 mins 30 secs of the records dropping out of the chart, around 3 mins 15 secs of the records treading water, and the full 4 mins for records climbing or new entries. I agree that most of the time it was better to play around 32 records.

Eventually it did go back to playing approximately 32 tracks and leave out the droppers in the low half, however not every week you got to hear the Top 20 played in full depending on how many New Entries and climbers their are
