Show Description

The Retro Charts show isn’t an oldies show! It’s the countdown of the top 10 brand new or never-before-heard albums and singles from singers and bands that have been making great chart music for more than 25 years. We call them retro artistes and we celebrate their latest releases every week on the Retro Charts show.

Presented by Terry Hughes (Radio Caroline early breakfast show DJ), it’s a fast-moving show and each week you never know which retro artistes will be played, so it always sounds fresh. Terry also gives the facts and the stories behind these new releases by old artistes!

Due to the licensing deals that we have in place with radio stations, new stations that take our show are asked to pay a small and very fair monthly fee, it’s the same cost as a couple of coffees per month. If you would like a custom version with your idents and timings, please contact us. Please note that we are able to license the show for free for stations that are charities and/or hospital radio.

The show is exactly 60 minutes in length and is provided as a single 320kb/s MP3.

Check out previous editions on Mixcloud (the link is provided elsewhere in this listing).

Please email us if you would like the show!

Thanks for supporting retro artistes, from Terry and Andy

BTW Andy is the creator and compiler of the show, he came up with the idea in 2015 and it’s going from strength to strength, it’s the only show based on actual sales, and it has left other similar shows in its wake, particularly the ones based on a handful of votes. It’s now heard on 30+ radio stations each week, including some on DAB and FM in the UK.
