Join Dave Marley and his Classic Chart Rundown every weekend here on African FM.

 

When it comes to music, it literally rules my life. I have been DJing since the early ’80s, but it wasn’t until the mid 90’s that I became interested in radio presenting. I love and respect all types of good music, right from as far back as the classic ’50s through to the indie-pop ’90s.

Unfortunately, I didn’t really enjoy much of what music had to offer after the ’90s ended. I grew up listening to the radio as a young lad and started collecting vinyl at the mere age of 5 years old in the early ’70s.

I would save my pocket money up to buy records as often as possible, and even now, 50 years on, I still collect music and I’m running out of space to put my vinyl collection I was always a massive fan of the original “Pick of the Pop” presented by the late Alan “Fluff” Freeman back in the day, and I always wanted to take a stab at doing my own take on a vintage chart countdown radio show.

So here it is.. I will be doing just that right here on this station, with my show “The Classic Chart Rundown”. I'll be bringing you a random Top 20 Chart countdown from anywhere between 1957 to 1989. It's a real nostalgia trip every time and if you're like me, a true lover of music, it won't take you long to fall in love with the show and all the personal memories it holds for every individual.

I hope you can join me from time to time.
