John Aston's Collection


The Caroline Countdown Of Sound,
Saturday 24th September 1966


Some of the type has faded and the page is a bit frayed round the edges. The presenter had also added some scribbles on the page which we have removed where possible. This is what the document originally said, omitting the record label details to improve clarity. The asterisks indicate the records that are going up the chart:
