Chart history may be made tonight as a National Chart show presenter will introduce himself on the countdown, unfortunately wont happen in the UK, but Ireland.

Mark McCabe will introduce himself at #12.

To my knowledge, this has never happened in the UK, but I may be wrong.

Bruno Brookes made number 53 in 1989

Liz Kershaw, Bruno Brookes, Jive Bunny And Londonbeat - It Takes Two Baby {53}-75->2

while he presented the chart at the time but of course, the tracked missed the Top 40.

Ha I remember it strangely didn't get a uk release - I remember the Love Inc track superstar was massive over here a year before it FINALLY became a uk top 5 hit - reminds of big Irish club records of the time!

Delirium - Silence was huge here also a good year before making the UK top 10. It took a remix/re-release to making a hit in the UK.

Yeh I remember the slow version of it they played on Atlantic 252 a lot - it sounded immense too.

Was Paul Burnett doing the Tuesday lunchtime chart reveal when "Convoy GB" made the charts?

I'd forgotten about that single. Johnnie Walker was still hosting the lunchtime show at the time the single charted (he left Radio 1 about 2 months later which is when Paul Burnett took over) but DLT was hosting the late afternoon show which featured a half hour recap of the new chart so he will have got to introduce himself as he was the other half of Laurie Lingo & The Dipsticks.

doesn't Marvin Humes do the Big Top 40 on Capital? so he would've introduced his group as a chart entry, although of course this isn't the official top 40 we're talking about

Hadn't JLS already split when Marvin started on the Big Top 40.

Was there ever any chance of Maniac 2000 ever being released in the UK? It's an extreme example of a song being absolutely massive in one country and virtually unknown in the other, especially remarkable given that Ireland is right next to it. Did they just assume that British audiences wouldn't take to some random Irish bloke they've never heard of shouting over a Flashdance cover? Even then a shortened edit removing some of McCabe and just selling it as a straightforward 'Maniac' remix would have probably done well, there were tons of trancey covers of old hits in the chart at the time.

For me though it's Gigi D'Agostino's 'La Passion' I feel sorry for. Big all over Europe, huge #2 in Ireland in early 2002, tenth biggest selling single of the year there and I don't even think they bothered with a UK release. It's catchy as hell!

'Maniac 2000' did make the lower reaches of the UK Top 200 Singles chart, peaking at number 137 on the chart dated 15 April 2000. I'm guessing that it was probably charting as an import.
