Op nummer 21 horen we de hoogste nieuwe binnenkomer, Old man Moses van de Les Humphries Singers. Memories van Earth and Fore komt halverwege de Top 50 binnen. Op 33 zien we de opvolger van Mammy Blue van de Spaanse Pop Tops in de Top 50 binnenkomen : Suzanne Suzanne, ook met van die zware bassen. Het mooie Jesus was a Crossmaker van de veel te jong overleden Judee Sill komt nieuw binnen op nummer 45 en nog zoín mooie, Streets of London van Ralph McTell, horen we voor ít eerst in de Top 50 op nummer 47. De kanskaart van Joost Verhoeven is een plaatje dat veel te weinig op de radio te horen is, Gallery met Nice to be with you. Christie zingt deze week de treiterschijf vol met hun Ijzeren Paard.

Deze Top 50 kun je hier beluisteren:

The RNI memories of Michael Downing for this week in April 1972

 

Saturday 15 April 1972

Leo van der Goot presents Kop Op this morning. Tonight's International Service programmes are:

18.00 Paul May (International Prediction Hit 40)

21.14 Paul May

23.00 Paul May (Kent Request Hour)

Terry Davis should have been on between 21.00 and 24.00, but due to rough seas he went to bed after reading the news at 18.30. Paul May and Tony Allan read the rest of the evening's news bulletins. The Top 40 show overruns by 14 minutes.

It now seems fairly certain that Barry Martin will not be appearing on RNI. Another new DJ, Roger Scott, has a hitpick in the Top 40 show this evening.

A number of new jingles made by Paul May are introduced today, together with an advert for the Red Cross.

In the surprise mentions department, Stuart Henry played "Rescue me" by Fontella Bass for Tony Allan on his BBC Radio 1 show this morning.
