On the eve of the 20 anniversary of the fall of the Berlin wall it is our privilege to present a special almost-middle-of-the-month chart of listeners favourites.
Here's what the current Top 10 looks like as of today ... and for today. Tomorrow it will have changed:
1. Frank Zappa & The Mothers Of Invention
Holiday In Berlin, Full Blown - Burnt Weeny Sandwich
2. Mahavishnu Orchestra
Open Country Joy - Birds Of Fire
Sweetness - Yes
4. Steely Dan
Show Biz Kids - Countdown To Ecstasy
5. Steely Dan
Reelin' In The Years - Can't Buy A Thrill
6. Steely Dan
Only A Fool Would Say That - Can't Buy A Thrill
7. The Beatles
It Won't Be Long - With The Beatles
The Fountain Of Salmacis - Nursery Cryme
9. Jean-Luc Ponty
Music For Violin And Low Budget Orchestra (edit) - King Kong
10. Howlin' Wolf
I Asked For Water - Frank Zappa's Jukebox (various artists)
We hope you noticed that Berlin was featured in the title of our number 1 here and now. And it's interesting reflecting on the fact that although we do add stuff from recent years as well as by less familiar artists, the most popular seem to be the older and most well known.
