On Easter Sunday, 26th March 1978, Radio Caroline celebrated its 14th birthday with another All-Time Top 50 chart. This one was compiled from the Listeners' Top 30 feature which was broadcast on the station at the time. 200 listeners' charts were collated to produce an overall Top 50 of their favourite tracks. This chart is courtesy of A look back at Radio Caroline 1976-80. Containing a lot of very long tracks and dominated by the likes of Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Barclay James Harvest and Deep Purple, it seems the punk revolution hadn't had much effect on the taste of Caroline's listeners!
