22nd March 1970.

In the early days of RNI, the Top 40 was presented twice each Sunday - once in English and once in German. This chart was originally compiled from a recording of Horst Reiner running down the new Top 40 on the evening of 22nd March 1970. Unfortunately we did not have the whole show but correspondent Per A Berggren has kindly filled in the gaps.

* Although Per Arne Berggren lists the Dave Dee track as number 30, we have an off-air recording in which DJ Carl Mitchell says it is number 31.


Some of this chart was obtained from a recording shared on the Internet Radiocafé, now known as the Radiotrefpunt (radio meeting point) forum by Scotty. Our thanks to him, and to Per Arne Berggren for his assistance.
 
The links from the songs on this page lead to the Amazon MP3 Store where you can hear short audio clips of the tracks and customers in the UK can buy downloads. Please see this note.
 
There are a number of other offshore charts listed on The Pirate Radio Hall of Fame. Full details here.
 
Last week's Top 40 is here. The next RNI chart we have is their first Nifty 50, dated 5th April.
