Radio 270 Top 40,
16th October 1966.


Back in the sixties Ian Kellock was a fan of Radio 270, the Yorkshire-based offshore station. His friend John Hogg put him in touch with The Pirate Radio Hall of Fame. Ian wrote: “John told me that you may be interested in some Radio 270 charts. I have hand-written copies that I made while listening to the station as a 14-year old pirate radio fan - but still legible! I have Radio 270 Top 40 charts from October 1966 to April 1967 (some complete) and some from the end of June to August 67 (mostly incomplete). Please let me know if you are interested in any of these, which I am happy to share.” We were delighted to accept Ian's kind offer. The first of his charts is below, with more on following pages.
 
Some of the later charts (from April 1967) have been augmented with additional information supplied by Per A Berggren of Oslo, Norway. With grateful thanks to Ian, John and Per.
