Caroline Countdown of Sound
24th February 1973


This was the third Top 40 chart broadcast in 1973 on the Dutch language daytime pop service of Radio Caroline.
 
We don't have the full list but the information we do have comes from a recording made by Maurice Bokkebroek (later to become the Radio Mi Amigo studio engineer) which was shared on the Radiotrefpunt (radio meeting point) forum by ‘Albatrosstudio’. Our thanks to both of them. The recording only covered the first half-hour of the show and another 16 minute segment near the end.
 
Can anyone fill in the gaps?

* Les Poppys were a group of French children who had a massive hit in Holland in 1971 called Non, Non, Rien N'a Change. Wikipedia claims that “in The Netherlands ... they sold more records than the Beatles”. It must have been the group's popularity which led to this particular track being added to the chart because, as far as we know, it was not released as a single in Holland, Belgium or the UK.



By way of comparison, the Top 50 used by the Dutch service of Radio Northsea International for the same week is here.
