“counting down”

published 11/08/2001

There might be songs you don't like!

Every week the total number of singles sales has to be added up and then put into this brilliantly presented show by Mark Goodyear. He counts down the Top 40 singles, starting from 40 down to 1, for those of who don't know. Usually he gets straight to the point and plays each song one after...

“Not The BEST”

published 23/02/2001

Not many

Boring Dj's

The good bit about the Top 40 on radio one is that of course it's just based on sales so you get a more accurate picture of what songs are doing in the shops. Obviously there isn't so much advertising either so you get a fairly uninterrupted broadcast. BUT the quality of the DJ's just do not...

“3 hours long”

published 24/03/2001

runs through them regularly

3 hours long

The UK Top 40 is on Sundays on Radio 1 (97 - 99 fm) from 4 pm to 7 pm so thats works out to be 3 hours long. I listen to it when I have the time but I don't usually have 3 hours to sit down and listen to the radio. The UK Top 40 is based on UK sales but not every single shop in Britain. There are...

Free and easy to use

Confused or am I

THE CHART SHOW: RADIO 1: FM 97.6 - 99.8 MHz from 16.00 - 19.00 hrs. The UK Top 40 is called the chart show by the Times on Saturday. I might be out of my depth here but I found the show a little confusing and 3 hours is a long time to be confused. For the first 2 1/2 hours you are taken through...

“Great if you have the time”

published 16/02/2001

Good show, well put together.

3 hours long

I regularly listen to radio 1 on a sunday night from 4pm to catch the new top 40. It lasts for 3 hours so it's a long programme to listen to but it's good as it plays each song from number 40 to number 1 with a re-count every 10 songs so if you do miss a part of the show then you can listen to...

fast

I am a die hard listener of this radio show as I reckon a lot of other people out there are. I really like to listen to where my fave new single has entered the charts (hopefully at number 1) but I do get a bit annoyed and start shouting at the DJ when it is beaten to the top spot by a song that...

“top 40 charts”

published 22/02/2001

good music

too long

I think that the top 40 chart if quite good because it is a great way to find what songs and what songs are out. But I do think that it is on at a bit of a stupid time because between 4 and 7 is a bit of a stupid time I think it should be on earlier so that people who wanted to listen to it but...
