Broadcast 13th April 2009 1-4 Radio 2
The UK’s most-heard recordings of the last 75 years. These are the records that have “outplayed” all others, not just on the radio but everywhere music is heard in public, from cafés to clubs and from high street to hospital radio.
The chart has been produced by PPL, the industry body that licenses recorded music on behalf of more than 3500 record companies. 2009 marks PPL’s 75th anniversary, and this special survey is being revealed first on Radio 2. These are the records that have been spun the most in clubs, pubs, supermarkets, stadiums, on jukeboxes, everywhere, since way back in 1934.
