The 208 Top 20 – Simon Tate

Simon Tate

Scheduled on

Sunday 7:00 pm 9:00 pm
The 208 Top Twenty ran from Autumn 1948 until December 1992 on Radio Luxembourg.
When it was launched with Teddy Johnson as the DJ in 1948, it was about a decade ahead of the BBC, who started Pick of The Pops in 1955, but which didn't begin an actual Top 20 until March, 1958 with David Jacobs.
So we relaunch this 72 year old show, which was on air for 44 years and has been off air for the past 28 years, on Sunday the 15th March at 7pm on United DJs Radio.
This version of The 208 Top 20 will be a 2 hour show with two different Luxembourg charts featured. For the first show on March 15th we will have the full Top Twenty from April, 1964 and the full Top Ten plus Top Twenty highlights from April, 1976.
The 208 Top Twenty is back on United DJs with Simon Tate.
