I used to be with it. Then they changed what it was…

Feeling out of touch? :wink:

Don’t laugh, it will happen to all you teenagers! :wink:

Sorry, couldn’t resist…


#6

Though my attitude may lead you to think otherwise, I’m not a teenager!


#7

Sorry Aria, but THIS is a real chart!


#8

Hey, I wasn’t referring to you! :slightly_smiling:


#9

You had to travel to the record shop every week to pick one up. :smile:


#10

That’s kind of what I liked about it.
Looking at a list on the Internet isn’t quite the same.

And I got to browse through the latest LPs, 7" and 12" inch singles and cassettes at the same time.

Ah those were the days.

And here’s me thinking that the Kent Music Report was a real chart!


#12

Maybe a little. I don’t recognise half of the songs in the singles chart.

Does take me back to the days where you would pick up a hard copy of the charts from Sanity :slight_smile:

I remember asking for a physical copy of a single at JB Hi-fi a few years back. I was given weird looks in return. :sweat:

I’m still into music in a big way and listen to Nova so I recognise all those songs.

Before Sanity we had Brashs and Palings.
And before that there was Edels and lots of independent record shops. One in almost every suburb.


#16

Some of those singles had rare B-sides on it too!

To keep that nostalgic theme going… :joy:

HMV was closing down stores when JB HiFi took hold.

And when radio stations used to print their own charts that you could pick up from your local record store too (similar to the ARIA Top 50 one from 1985 that I linked further above.

I used to have a whole stack of those, a lot of them being the local 2NX Newcastle one, but did pick up a few others when on holidays interstate, 3XY and 3GL charts were among those. Similar to this one.

Wish I still had them! :cry:
