I'm not sure, but I imagine it would have been a gradual change. Record companies might have just slowly started sending the station CDs instead of vinyl copies of their singles through the late 1980s/early 1990s, and with different labels switching at different times there was probably a year or two when some would be on vinyl and some CD.

The first #1 not on 7" vinyl was Culture Beat's Mr Vain in 1993, and the first #1 not on vinyl at all was Celine Dion's Think Twice in 1995.

... I do distinctly recall the top 40 dj commenting on how great Phil Collins "one more night" was on cd ... So that would be fairly early 1985? Think it was Richard skinner
