CHARTS: UK Top 40 Singles Chart 14th March 1993

UK Top 40 Singles Chart for Sunday 14th March 1993

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 8th to Saturday 13th March 1993.

This week, thirty years ago, there were nine new entrys, thirteen climbers and NO non-movers! And it was announced like this…
