Show Description

The Retro Charts show isn’t an oldies show! It’s the countdown of the top 10 current albums and singles from singers and bands that have been making great chart music for more than 25 years. It’s the only chart of its kind based on actual sales.

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 appear with their brand new or never-before heard music, so it always sounds fresh. Terry also gives the facts and the stories behind these new releases by old artistes!

There’s a free version for stations that aren’t commercial enterprises, and some stations pay for custom versions with their idents and links. The show is, by default, exactly 60 minutes.

Check out previous editions on Mixcloud and 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.
