The Classic Retro Countdown (Genre:QMR Two)

Radio Producers

Show Description

The Classic Retro Countdown is brought to you in association with producer Dave Taylor who each week hand picks a classic UK Top 40 from the current week in UK chart history. The show covers the weekly original charts, as seen back in the day on Radio & TV. Over a 6 week cycle, we bring you the charts of 55 years ago, 46 years ago, 34 years ago, 52 years ago, 40 years ago & 28 years ago.

We then countdown the Top 40 in the same way it was brought to the listeners all those years ago and over the course of the show play as many of the 40 songs, plus some bubblers as we can squeeze into the two hours.

The show features original Top 40 themes and some original jingles bringing back to life the way the Top 40 was presented on the radio way back when.

We have no set playlist for the show, the only playlist we use is chart history so make sure you join us each we for those Top 40 musical memories on the Classic Retro Countdown.

This is a weekly two hour show remembering the UK hits of the 1950's, 1960's, 1970's & 1980's
