Many thanks to Jempi for sharing this chart. For more Radio Caroline charts, see his website, The Stonewashed Collection.
 
* When he donated this chart to The Pirate Radio Hall of Fame, Jempi told us it was from 18th December 1965 so that is how we billed it. However it seems he has since revised his opinion because it is dated 11th December on his website. We gave now amended it here too.
 
The Radio London Fab Forty for the same week is here. The (Radio) City Sixty is here.
 
The links from the songs on this page lead to the Amazon MP3 Store where you can hear short audio clips of the tracks and customers in the UK can buy downloads. Please see this note.
