De hoogste nieuwe binnenkomer is deze week het debuut van de Sparks in de Top 50 met This town ainít big enough. Op 30 verwelkomen we het prachtige Iíll have to say I love you in a song van de in 1973 overleden Jim Croce. De treiterschijf van de vorige week van Larry Cotton komt deze week binnen op nummer 45. Is het nou echt Patries, die de vrouwelijke stem op dit lied invult? De hekkensluiter is Run to the sunshine van Leo Unger, een populair plaatje bij de hardlopers. Leo van der Goot heeft wederom een dijk van een plaat tot Kanskaart verkozen van Mott the Hoople deze keer : The golden age of R&R.

The RNI memories of Michael Downing for this week in June 1974

 

By 8 June 1974 the DJs on RNI's International service were Don Allen, Brian McKenzie, Robin Banks, Roger Kent and Jason Wolfe, who had joined on 31 May 1974 to replace Graham Gill, who had rejoined Radio Caroline. On Friday 7 June 1974 Roger Kent presented the Toppers 20 show from 20.00 to 22.00, which had "Judy Teen" by Cockney Rebel at number 1. The number 20 slot was interesting - in the Toppers 20 show, the record played was "Better get ready for love", but during the week the DJs announced "Ooh I do" by Lynsey de Paul as number 20.

The Top 10 albums had the usual mix of well known and now forgotten titles. In the latter category are "You smile the song begins" by Herb Alpert, "Florence Warner" by Florence Warner and "Tim Moore" by Tim Moore, but tracks from these three LPs were played throughout the week on the International service.

On the Dutch service, the Top 50 show was presented as usual by Ferry Maat and the Troef 20 was presented by Marc van Amstel.

New records which were played on RNI in the week commencing 8 June 1974 included:
