Another Day van Paul McCartney is deze week de hoogste nieuwe op nummer 13. Op 40 komt Love Story van Andy Williams nieuw binnen. Lally Stott stoot Danyel Gerard van de eerste plaats deze week met zijn uitvoering van Chirpy Chirpy Cheep Cheep. Bram in de Rai van Paul van Vliet staat op nummer 44 deze week, een bijzondere plaat voor een Top 50 notering. Op nummer 16 in de playlist heb ik L.A. Goodbye van de Ides of March gezet. Een werkelijk prachtig nummer dat hier in NL redelijk onbekend is, maar toch veel meer aandacht had/zou mogen krijgen.

Deze Top 50 kun je hier beluisteren:

Uur 1 Uur 2 Uur 3

Als toegift deze week platen uit de RNI playlist, de kanskaarten, de treiterschijven en een track van de LP van de week in de vorm van een Top 18. De volledige playlist vind je onderaan deze pagina.

Crispian St John has a new promo on his show at 16.00 today, based on an advert that RNI had in 1970 featuring the voice of Mark Wesley that starts "You can't help noticing how as each day progresses driving becomes less of a pleasure". In 1970 this was an advert for Sony, but it has now been revived for a drive time promo, with Alan West cutting in before Sony is mentioned.

Tuesday 23 March 1971

Not much happening today. Neil Diamond's "Sweet Caroline" added to the playlist, as it has been reissued in the UK.

Wednesday 24 March 1971

All of the hitbacks on the Crispian St John show today come from 1964. Tomorrow they will come from 1965 and so on, until next Wednesday, 31 March, they will all come from 1970.

Thursday 25 March 1971

The tender failed to come out today due to bad weather, but it is hoped that there will be a tender tomorrow. New records by T Rex and Dusk introduced to the playlist.

The outcome of the legal case between RNI and Radio Veronica was expected today, but there is no word on RNI about it.

Friday 26 March 1971

The tender does come out today, but there is no change in DJs. It is now hoped that the DJs can change on Monday. New records do come out on the tender, though, from Olivia Newton-John, Three Dog Night, Cliff Richard, Yvonne Elliman, Dawn, Brass Monkey, Jumbo, Emmitt Rhodes (both "Fresh as a daisy" and "Live till you die"), Elvis Presley and Engelbert Humperdinck.
