Mark Goodier plays songs that were at No.2 at Christmas from the 60's to the present including The Beatles, Cliff Richard, Abba and Rag 'N' Bone Man.

This sounds quite intriguing as I don't know the #2s all that well. Given the day too I might actively tune in to Radio 2 for the first time ever...

I may listen on the iplayer - there's usually a countdown of these on the music channels as well although most likely from the 80s onwards, they rarely play music from before 1980 on MTV these days!!

There's a list of them all on Wikipedia if anyone's interested.

With only two hours there's plenty for them to skip, so no doubt they'll skip most of what I want to hear in favour of some random crap old songs, though at least the year 1973 can be ruled out. tongue.gif

I expect their intention is to play the songs that never got to number one (so peaked at number two), they'll have a lot less to skip then.

Mike Flowers Pops! I remember listening to that chart on a bitterly cold Christmas Eve 1995, my parents driving home from my grandparents. We got home JUST as Mike was announced as the No2 - didn't he troll the Oasis fans by pretending that his was the original and they'd ripped him off ?

The Housemartins had been at No.1 but was knocked off Christmas week by Reet Petite.

Yes it should be on totp on BBC 4 in the next two weeks, love the housemartins track - would have been a much better no1 at Xmas than Reel Petite - 1986 was a random crap Xmas chart year for the 80s

He so is, isn't he? Just the right mix of avuncular and authority that's been so lacking in his successors from the last 15 years!

Though I think it's fair to say that Scott is doing a pretty good job. Seems to be taking it more seriously now he's got the permanent gig.

Yes that true as well Acerben I like Scott too, he takes to it like the older radio 1 djs and not like the more modern ones who don't have a clue about the chart and are quite patronising because they think they are hipsters!

I wonder how they will be deal with Jive Bunny's "Let's Party" from 1989. It was Xmas No.2 after being No.1 for a week.

Band Aid 2 dethroned it. Gary Glitter's "Another rock and roll Christmas" features in the song I think.
