This week on the 20 20 Retro Countdown - we'll start with one of our favourites...

Do you know what George Benson, Paul Kelly, Sade, Peter Frampton and Gangajang have in common??

They are all artists who had multiple songs make the Aussie charts - but they never had a top 10 hit... It's the "Biggest Artists Without A Big Hit" Countdown!

Then we're off to late May 1987..

We've got the top 20 hits from the week when the first Rugby Union World Cup was held. No Surprise that the trophy went to the All Blacks - but do you remember who they played in the final? And do you remember Australia's dramatic final in the '87 world cup?

We'll relive those moments and roll out the songs that were on the paper chart!

This will get you thinking - what does this have to do with late May 1976?

Wednesday's 20 20 Retro Countdown features the top 20 songs that were on the Aussie charts when the ownership of gold was legalised in Australia!

Maybe you can help out a little bit with your memories of the week when we were allowed to own gold... Were we previously limited in the amounts we could own?? Did it depend of the Karats? Why couldn't we own gold before late May 1976? We'll try and answer those questions when we roll through the countdown of the top 20 from this week in 1976!

 

 

 

Don't miss the hits of this week in 1990!

We promise that our countdown of the top 20 from late May 1990 wont be about nothing - even though we'll be celebrating the anniversary of the week when the show about nothing starting on tele.... We got our first glimse of Jerry, Elaine, George and Kramer - who went on to become household names throughout the 90's!

We'll feature the first moments of Seinfeld amongst the hits of this week in 1990!

The tools are ready as we go to work on another 20 20 Retro Countdown!

Yes, we'll be hard at work as we bring together 20 songs about working to wrap up another working week on the 20 20 Retro Countdown..

How many songs can you name that sum up putting your nose to the grindstone... we've hunted down 20 and they're on the way!
