I'm not too sure how much interest this would be for people on here, but if you're feeling in a retro mood, you could have a listen to this.

The first radio station to announce a reaction to the end of the BBC Radio 1 Sunday night chart show is Absolute 80s.

The digital station will broadcast a classic chart from the 80s each Sunday 4pm till 7pm, hosted by Martyn Lee, starting in May.

It was just last week when BBC Radio 1 announced it was moving the Official Chart from Sunday to Friday, within Greg James’ Drive show.

Martyn Lee says: “Sunday afternoons wouldn’t be the same without the chart show. We know Absolute 80s listeners grew up listening to it and they still remember the anticipation of finding out who was number 1 and where their favourite song would chart. This is a chance to maintain the legacy of a British institution and I can’t wait to start the show”.

That's honestly pretty cool. If in 20 years a radio station did this for the 00's I'd definitely listen!

Hopefully if it's a success they'll do one on Absolute 90s too

And hopefully at some point, air some TOTP episodes from the '90s on BBC4 as well.

I'm not really interested in 80s music as a whole so probably won't listen to it. If Absolute 90s / 00s did it as well maybe I'd listen to that.
