Radio 270 memories

Although Radio 270 used a Top 40 chart it's actual playlist was considerably longer. This rare Radio 270 playlist has been kindly provided by Guy Hamilton. It is for the week commencing 26th February 1967. It was a long list - one hundred songs - and to keep track of who played what, they used a wall chart. Each DJ used a different colour crayon to tick off what he had included in his show. This is part of the week's chart, saved by Guy:

The full chart is listed below:
