  1. Thanks very much. There's a few on there I know nothing about, so it's always good to hear "new" stuff.

    1. Hi eecat,
      While many are known some may not be as they were low charting. Nonetheless, they did chart in the top 100.

  2. The months go by so quickly these days but this series makes everything worthwhile. Many thanks, Paul

    1. Hi Paul, September in ready, but I am afraid you will have to wait a month. I guess that not too long to wait. Enjoy the series.

  3. Muy bien, amigo. Mil gracias. Saludos afectuosos.

  4. BB I always enjoy hearing stuff that is new to me. A lot of these must be from the US charts, I'm having a good time listening. Thanks. (Oh to be 15 again!)

    1. Hi lemonflag.
      They tend to be mostly US but many US chart songs were also found in the UK charts sometime a few months later. I also try include the lower charting songs which were great but possibly not in the charts for a long time.
