Blue Red

60 years of UK Christmas No.1s (1952 - 2012)

It's the 1st of December!

Yay!


It's Christmas no.1's time!

I haven't posted these songs for a couple of years and it's the 60th anniversary of the beginning of the UK charts. The UK charts started in 1952 and the Christmas No1 of 1952 was also the very first No.1 song in the charts.

I love Christmas No1s and have collected them over the years on 78, vinyl and CD. 

I've tried to find original video footage where possible but obviously a lot of the TV footage of the early ones has been destroyed or lost.

so here are the first 3 UK Christmas no1s -


Al Martino - Here In My Heart
1952



Frankie Laine - Answer Me
1953




Winnifred Atwell - Let's Have Another Party
1954


Eurovision

Big smile!

Yesterday I got an e-mail from the person who does an article in the Eurovision Fan Club Magazine 'Vision' where he interviews a few people, asking me if I would be interviewed for the next magazine!

I've got a big grin on my face!
