    Thanks Zap, the 60s was a new musical age, exciting even and a time when the youngsters could let themselves go more than they had done up to then. I listen to all types of music but as I said I'm stuck in the 60s era, now I'm listening to my Grandkids music, some of it's quite good. I would mainly listen to middle of the road stuff, being a boring old sod, Cheers Zap !!

    cracker selection of music there Marty. Nice having a wide varied bunch of artists. Even if I don't (or do) like a certain tune I often will question it as to why I do (or don't) like it.
    I was having this chat the other day about John Lydon (Johnny Rotten). I like his voice and a good bit of his music. I can not explain why I like it but I can understand why some wouldn't.
    Anyway..some good choices there fella.
    Keep up the good work.

    Standing on the corner (watching all the girls go by). A white sports coat, a pink carnation. Green door. Island of dreams. Some of my memories of Radio Luxembourg in the '50's. Was told recently that it broadcasts were made from southern England.Over 60 years I've been thinking it broadcast from the continent and that's why the reception was weak in England.
    The Tiffin advert on Luxy was also memorable.
    All the best, Marty1,

    Not sure Lizzie what night the top 40 was on, but I think you're right though. Throughout the 1950s, Radio Luxembourg broadcast a sheet music Top 20. This was the first ever Top Twenty countdown show, and set the pattern of chart shows for the decades that followed.

    Great stuff Marty.
    Some great names and songs mentioned here..........and good old Radio Luxembourg...........was it Sunday when they had the Top 40 on?
    The 60's was/is my favourite music era......and having older brothers and sisters I grew up with the 50s stuff too.
