The UK singles chart commenced in November 1952 and there has always been a number single every week since.

Chart toppers that were one hit wonders, instrumentals or by solo singers, duo’s, trio’s, groups or more and with many remaining in our hearts forever. There have been seasonal songs, comedies, or fund raisers, competition entrants and in more recent years, those voted for online.

In the UK Number one singles show any UK number one could be played, from the Fifties to today and in the first hour there will be one rogue – an imposter, a non-number one for you to listen for.
Nigel has a mission to own every song from this ever growing exclusive list and now brings you the show that bypasses the other chart positions to play you the best selling from any week of the UK singles chart.
