So this was the chart that Radio 1 DJ Bruno Brookes broadcast from 4pm-7pm with data from the GALLUP computer based on record sales from Monday 20th to Saturday 25th July 1992.
This is how the charts USED to look with new entries, climbers and non-movers, all based solely on record purchases. This week, thirty years ago, there were nine new entrys, thirteen climbers and two non-movers! And it was announced like this…
40. KWS – “Please Don’t Go” KWS hang on for another week with their former five week chart topper, but could this one be their last as the song goes down ten places?
