4th January 1974.

In January 1974 the Top 30 used by Radio Northsea's International Service was replaced by a new chart, the Toppers 20. This is the first one.
 
Some of the details of this chart were obtained from a recording kindly shared on Azanorak, supplemented and confirmed with information from radiopedia.nl with grateful thanks to both.
