Caroline Sure Shots

  98.6 Bystanders Robbie Dale Sure Shot **

*Mary's notes

The Countdown of Sound DJ for Jan 7th was originally listed as Mike Ahern, but Alan Hardy has confirmed the presenter as Johnnie Walker.

A listing dated Jan 8th (received February 2009) differs from the above. Both agree on Robbie Dale's Sure Shot as 98.6, but not on Tommy Vance's or Johnnie Walker's picks. We can only guess at the reason for the anomolies, but it is possible that the Sure Shots were announced differently on the Sunday programme.

  98.6 Bystanders Robbie Dale  
  No Fun At The Fair Bobby Goldsboro Dave Lee Travis  
  Seagulls Jonathan King Tommy Vance  
  His Girl Guess Who Keith Hampshire  
  (He's) Raining In My Sunshine Jay & The Americans Johnnie Walker  
  Peek-a-boo New Vaudeville Band Steve Young  

(He's) Raining In My Sunshine entered the Fab Forty this week at #25, with No Fun at the Fair new at #32.

Here Comes My Baby was also picked this week as Keith Skues's Radio London Climber , entering the Fab Forty on 15th January at #27. It failed to appear in the CCoS till February 4th.
Peek a Boo is also a Big L climber.

Radio London ignored the Bystanders and played only the US hit version of 98.6 by Keith, which reached #4 in the Fab Forty on January 29th
