MICHAEL Brooks' Classic Vinyl column is so much enjoyed by older Gazette readers.

It would be most fitting if the column also listed the Top 20 as it was called in those days.

I think it was started by Radio Luxembourg and many people, some without TVs, enjoyed the Top 20 on Sunday nights from around 11pm to midnight, from my recollection.

I don't know just when the Top 20 started - perhaps in the late 1940s or early 1950s - but it was a talking point for those in their teens to their 60s.

What may well help the column is if Mr Brooks was able to list, say, every week the Top 20 from a certain date, presumably from when it firstly started or from a date he thinks will be the most suitable.

It would bring back many memories to so many.
