BBC locals offer vintage chart

Local BBC stations in Devon and Jersey are offering an alternative to the weekly Top 40 show on Radio 1, by broadcasting a vintage Top 40.

The programme will air between 5pm and 7pm, hosted by Shaun Tilley and various former Radio 1 and Radio 2 presenters.

Included in the special guest line up is Mike Read, David Hamilton, Ed Stewart, Pat Sharp, Adrian John and Adrian Juste.

Shaun told "Although hosted in a contemporary style, the show's format and sound tips it’s hat to the halcyon days of the chart show."

It is hoped the show will be extended to other local stations in the future.
